To keep your fleet operating profitably, managing costs is one of your top priorities. Managing costs is not easy with fluctuating fuel prices, increased competition, customer satisfaction demands, and more complex requirements for safety monitoring and regulatory compliance. How do you meet the challenge of keeping costs down while still operating efficiently and profitably?
According to Department of Transportation statistics, 273,000 large trucks were involved in traffic collisions in 2011. This fact hits close to home for Omnitracs, as we strive to provide fleets with technology solutions that help drivers and managers improve safety and prevent accidents. In light of these statistics, and amidst mounting pressure to maintain on-time delivery with lean operations, fleets are challenged more than ever before to reduce costly accidents and keep drivers safe. To mitigate these pressures, we announced at the annual ATA Management Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, the enhancement of our Critical Event Reporting (CER) application which includes the Over Speed Events add-on and the introduction of an additional provider of integrated Following Time Violation (FTV) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) add-ons.

Utilized across numerous departments, predictive analytics is changing the way companies operate and do business.
On July 18, 2013, The Trucking Industry Mobility and Technology Coalition (TIMTC) hosted a webinar on “Connectivity for Trucks.” As a panel member, I presented a broad perspective on connected vehicle capabilities for trucks with technology that is available to the industry today for improved safety and efficiency.

Shippers are being more cautious than ever about the legal and financial risks associated with carriers that have poor compliance and safety ratings. As a result, CSA scores are becoming a standard part of carrier analysis and selection...
