This cellular company flies engineers to markets across North America to manage test procedures and gather data transmitted by cell sites. When the program began, the company sourced drivers from a temporary staffing agency. A rise in incidents with temporary drivers led the company to take a new approach by outsourcing to WeDriveU’s Data Collection Services team.
In 2008, the client began outsourcing to WeDriveU. The program has grown to more than tens of thousands of service hours annually. WeDriveU manages staffing, training and vehicle management, including 15 drivers operating each week in markets across the U.S. and Canada. Professional drivers from WeDriveU drive vehicles on routes generated by the field technicians, allowing the client’s engineers to focus on operating equipment, performing tests, and gathering and transmitting data. WeDriveU’s dedicated account team handles reservations, dispatching and real-time performance analysis.
- Program management, strategy, driver staffing, call center operations, vehicle management and logistics

This program demonstrates WeDriveU’s proven expertise scaling complex, high-volume transportation.
