Countrywide Sanitation has been serving the Grand Forks community since 2008, providing collection, transportation, disposal and recycling services to both residential and commercial customers. As a comprehensive waste company, Countrywide Sanitation’s fleet of vehicles is the lifeblood of its business. It operates more than 18 vehicles, and to help manage this impressive fleet, General Manager Bryan Krom looks to Stone’s.
Stone’s worked with Countrywide Sanitation to deploy a Networkfleet system, which merges GPS technology with reliable wireless coverage. Using this system, Krom is able to access information about location, stops, idling and mileage on any of Countrywide Sanitation’s many vehicles – from anywhere that has Internet access (including his office or even his smartphone). Krom has been especially grateful for the vehicle diagnostics that the system provides.
Since Countrywide Sanitation started using Networkfleet in 2013, Krom has experienced very few issues. “We’ve been very happy with the system provided by Stone’s,” says Krom. “Their service has always been professional and personal. It’s nice to have the peace of mind that comes from working with a company that takes as much pride in their service as we do in our own.”

R.J. Zavoral & Sons has been moving earth in the Red River Valley since 1951. Headquartered in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, they use a GPS system to track dump trucks, semi tractors and pickups. As the company has grown, it has become common to work many projects at the same time, sometimes over a huge geographic area. According to Dave Zavoral, “it comes down to improved safety and competitive bids. We experience fewer accidents because drivers are held accountable, and we are able to give confident, accurate bids because we can easily predict our fuel and maintenance costs. It actually helps a lot that we save money when our vehicles are driven correctly.”
The state of Wyoming tasked Wyoming Department of Transportation (WyDOT ) with managing the implementation of its new 58-site statewide ASTRO 25 network. WyDOT would acquire, develop, and build out each site, then hand it over to Motorola to deploy the two-way radio communications equipment. But when WyDOT fell behind on site development, the schedule was in jeopardy.
While WyDOT continued to move forward with site acquisition, Motorola’s Site Development team stepped in to help develop and build selected sites and keep the momentum going to stay on track and meet the projected system deployment timeline.
Currently, 42 of the 58 sites are on-line and over 80% of the state now has access to P25- compliant interoperable communications. The entire system is scheduled to be complete as of December 2010.
