Technology identifies risk potential while safety team corrects for significant accident reduction
Dupré Logistics, a national logistics team of over 1,000 professionals, recently partnered with GreenRoad, a global pioneer in improving driving behavior, to complement its existing driver safety program. GreenRoad’s automated, customizable service empowers drivers and fleets to reduce crashes, improve fuel economy and reduce overall vehicle operating costs. Dupré will be implementing GreenRoad’s technology in company tractors, cars and pickup trucks.
“We are very excited about this technology because we see this as a tool to move us closer to our vision of being the safest transportation and logistics company in North America,” said Dupré Logistics President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Voelkel. “The information provided by the GreenRoad system will enable drivers to better manage their own safety, avoid risk and become safer and greener drivers through improved fuel mileage.”
GreenRoad continuously measures and analyzes maneuvers that most impact safe driving, fuel efficiency and emissions, focusing driver-specific feedback accordingly. Constant reinforcement in the form of a simple red-yellow-green display motivates drivers to sustain behavior improvements. Fleet management and risk and safety professionals gain complete visibility into driving behavior and have easy-to-use tools they need to help drivers achieve measurable safety and fuel-efficiency goals. Customizable reports available via e-mail and the GreenRoad web portal provide individual trip details, risk analysis and coaching to help drivers sustain improvement.
“We are excited to join forces with an industry leader like Dupré who shares our commitment to safety innovation,” said GreenRoad North American General Manager Pete Allen. “We look forward to helping empower their drivers with preventative technology services that fosterdrivers, foster safe and fuel efficient driving habits, and build upon Dupre’s strong safety culture.”
