Project Description

Lam Research engaged WeDriveU’s Meeting & Event Services team to shuttle thousands of employees to West Coast company celebrations.

Challenges

  • Transport 7,000 employees and guests for the client’s 2017 Milestone Events  
  • Provide event transportation consistent with quality and reliability of their daily commuter shuttles 
  • Support client’s goal for a memorable guest experience  

Solution

With WeDriveU already managing the daily employee shuttle program for Lam Research headquarters and other facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area, the client engaged WeDriveU’s Meeting & Event Services team for its Milestone Events in San Francisco and Portland. WeDriveU provided transportation for employees and guests between corporate campuses and event venues.

According to the client’s YouTube highlight reel, “Lam employees celebrate our many achievements and reflect on how far we have come as one team. The theme of our global celebrations this year – Beyond Imagination – conveys the magnitude of our recent successes and the tremendous opportunity ahead of us.”

WeDriveU’s services included:

  • Transportation logistics: stops, routes, schedules and passenger parking
  • Event roadbooks detailing transportation plans
  • Onsite transportation managers
  • Staff and coordinate team of 90 motorcoach drivers
  • Fleet planning and staging
  • GPS tracking and real-time analytics

Milestone Celebration – San Francisco Bay Area: WeDriveU transported 4,200 employees and guests in 55 motorcoaches between its Fremont and Livermore campuses, San Jose light rail stations, Sunnyvale and Mountain View CalTrain stations, Millbrae BART station and the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, CA.

Milestone Celebration – Portland: WeDriveU transported 2,900 employees and guests in 32 motorcoaches between campuses in Tualatin, Hillsboro and Vancouver and the Oregon Convention Center.

Results

WeDriveU’s strong performance and attention to detail for Lam’s Milestone Events mirrored the passenger experience on Lam’s daily commuter shuttles. The client praised WeDriveU’s ability to scale and support the California and Oregon events “without a hitch”:

  • 7,000 employees and guests
  • 87 motor coaches
  • Transportation success in 2017 led the client to rebook WeDriveU Event Services for its 2018 Milestone Celebration in Monterey, CA.

The client praised WeDriveU for exceptional results:

“From initial presentation of their winning proposals, to negotiating offsite bus staging locations, the Meetings and Events team delivered on every plan without a hitch…The team…deployed professionally-capable staff, who managed their various assignments with aplomb. Moreover, their courteous service made an invaluable contribution to the overall experience for over 7,000 employees and esteemed guests at the two Milestone Celebrations. It’s with no reservation, therefore, that we recommend WeDriveU’ s Meetings and Events team for any customer events.” – Program Manager, LAM Research Corporation
