Fleetmatics Case Study

Leonhardt Pipe & Supply


This case study of Leonhardt Pipe & Supply is based on a March 2017 survey of Fleetmatics customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Fleetmatics saves my drivers time and keeps them moving, and the automated reports save our inside team a lot of hours every month.”


Leonhardt Pipe & Supply began looking for an electronic logging solution in order to better manage their fleet and integrate logging with their GPS solution. The company chose Fleetmatics LogBook over competitive solutions because of features that others did not have.

Use Case

Fleetmatics LogBook’s automated reports and mobile driver app have helped the company to increase productivity, and a number of features have lowered costs:

  • Automated reports
  • Hours of Service violation alerts
  • Unassigned miles alert
  • Driver app


Overall, Fleetmatics LogBook has improved Leonhardt Pipe & Supply’s business in a variety of ways:

  • Decreased DVIR time and paperwork
  • Significantly reduced the amount of time employees spend on paperwork
  • Given them access to drivers’ hours of service (HOS) in real time
  • Decreased the number of HOS compliance violations
  • Prepared their business for the upcoming ELD mandate changes

Furthermore, over 90% of Leonhardt Pipe & Supply’s team transitioned to LogBook within 4 weeks.

As Vice President Josh Leonhardt says, “Fleetmatics pays for itself over and over again, and it provides me with data I wouldn’t otherwise have to make better decisions regarding my company vehicles and drivers.”
