Hub Group Deploys the SmartDrive Program

SAN DIEGO, September 6, 2017SmartDrive Systems, a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, today announced that Hub Group, one of the largest multi-modal solutions providers in North America, has adopted the SmartDrive® video-based safety platform to improve overall fleet safety.

Recognized as a 2017 Great Supply Chain Partner by SuppyChainBrain and with annual honors as Intermodal Carrier of the Year from various customers, Hub Group has long demonstrated its dedication to running a safe and compliant business. As a leading multi-modal solutions provider, Hub Group counts on company assets and owner operators within its growing fleet of more than 2,600 tractors. The company has developed a reputation for its focus on safety as well as investing in the best technology to complement overall operational goals.

“Our priority is to make sure all our drivers get home safely to their families every night and introducing video-based safety technology is the logical next phase of our safety evolution,” stated Jason Letchford, Senior Director, Fleet Technology of Hub Group. “After evaluating options, we knew that the SmartDrive system was the best choice for us and will enable us to hit the ground running with this new aspect of our safety program.”

After piloting two video-based safety solutions, Hub Group selected the SmartDrive platform because of its intuitive user interface and robust safety tools, as well as the superior support from the SmartDrive customer service team. Other key factors that prompted Hub Group to choose the SmartDrive system were the quality of videos provided for review, wider camera angles, extended recording capabilities and the options available under the SmartChoiceTM program. Hub Group also noted that extended recording ensures even low or no-impact driving events are still captured and can be analyzed and made available to fleet managers. On the backend, the operations team appreciated the myriad data and reference points available, as well as the overall look and feel of the interface.

With the SmartDrive SmartChoiceTM program, fleets enjoy the freedom to choose the optimal level of video protection to fit their business.

“We’re proud to work with a company already known for its deep commitment to protecting its drivers and investing in advanced safety technology,” commented Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. “With a concerted effort to meaningfully reduce risk, Hub Group is among a growing number of safety-minded fleets implementing the SmartDrive system to capture exactly what happens out on the road in the case of a collision or other incident.”
