McMartin Farms Improves Profitability With GPS System From Stone’s

McMLogoMcMartin Farms in St. Thomas, North Dakota, grows mainly sugar beets, wheat, soybeans and corn. They use a GPS system in their trucks and pickups. “It has helped our profitability,” says Farm Manager Eric Eischens. “By monitoring trip times, wait times and bottlenecks, we can increase the number of loads we haul each day. We can even reroute trucks if lines are too long at the elevator or the piler. Once drivers understood the benefits, they were completely on board. After all, we can make better use of their time, and we can address truck breakdowns very quickly. GPS tracking simply helps us to manage our resources better.”
