Pontiac AdAs America's largest wholesale grocery distributor, Supervalu is constantly striving to be the leader of commodity distribution. To be the leader requires a concentrated focus on innovation, concern and awareness of client and market needs. Supervalu recognizes that its trailer fleet has the means to be much more than just a delivery system for client products. Its 'mode of operation' lends itself perfectly as a marketing and advertising delivery system for both Supervalu clients and major brands, delivering information and recognition messages to both consumers and retailers.

Supervalu has thoroughly researched the feasibility of using its trailer fleet as 'mobile billboards' in partnership with ROADMARK Inc., America's leading fleet advertising management company. This vehicular advertising program will be managed by ROADMARK Inc. under the guidelines set forth by Supervalu's management and dispatch staff. Rates established for client advertising have intentionally been set lower than any other form of major advertising media specifically for the purpose of 'furthering client relations.'

Supervalu's mission is to offer its clients the most comprehensive service possible to 'move product.' Now, Supervalu can move 'product to the shelf' and 'off the shelf.' We deliver your product(s)... and your message(s), all in one trailer load, direct to consumers, effectively and economically.

Formula for Impressions
- Source : American Trucking Assoc. / Private Fleet Council
Bruskin Russell Research / AC Nielsen Research/ROADMARK, Inc.
New study (1999) T.A.B. (N.Y.)

Our studies conclude that daytime impressions are determined from data involving "mode of operation" of any single fleet 1) per mile, 2) per min., 3) by percentage of time of travel on any particular roadway. **T.A.B. Study, by GPS Monitoring.

Our data compiled suggests :
31 impressions per mile/per min. - rural interstate
35 impressions per mile/per min. - suburban interstate*
48 impressions per mile/per min. - urban interstate
68 impressions per mile/per min. - secondary arterial*
93 impressions per mile/per min. - urban arterial*
131 impressions per mile/per min. -city street*
* (indicates our average mode of operation)
* New T.A.B. Study suggests nearly double these estimates

8 hr. day, 40% suburban interstate, 192 min./day = 6,720 impressions/day
8 hr. day, 40% secondary arterial, 192 min./day = 13,056 impressions/day
8 hr. day, 20% city streets, 96 min./day = 12,576 impressions/day
TOTAL = 32,352

32,352 impressions per day, 360 days per year = 11,646,720 impressions per year
CPM @ $800/mo. rate = 46 cents per 1,000 impressions (not including production)

Demographics contingent on marketplace chosen. All demographic groups exposed (women, men, children, upper, middle and lower income) subject to time of day. AVERAGE REACH 85% AVERAGE FREQUENCY 11 x mo.
