COUNTRY: USA

APPLICATION: Engines

SAVING: US$46,000 total reported customer saving

KEY EDGE: Shell LubeAnalyst

A prominent parcel delivery company in the USA was looking to prevent costly breakdowns in its extensive vehicle fleet. Its aim was to assess the condition of its vehicles so that the vehicle manufacturer could rectify problems within the warranty period. The company approached Shell Lubricants, which was already supplying its lubricants, for help.

Shell recommended the Shell LubeAnalyst oil condition monitoring service. The service provides lubricant sample analysis that helps to identify oil or equipment failures before they become critical. By using the Shell LubeAnalyst service, the parcel delivery company was able to identify issues in three engines and to return these to the manufacturer while they were still under warranty.

The company reportedly saved approximately US$46,000 in engine rebuilds, money that would have been spent had the problem been identified after the warranties had expired. The company also benefited from a reduction in downtime through avoiding the problems identified by Shell LubeAnalyst.
