With the ongoing shortage of experienced truck drivers, fleets need to think outside the box to find ways to recruit drivers.
Enforcing a fleet safety program can't be done in a vacuum. Fleet managers, along with fleet stakeholders--including HR, legal, and risk management departments--must develop a clear set of policies that are easily communicated and understood by drivers and other employees.
Technology is making fleets safer. Continuous MVR monitoring can alert fleet managers and company leadership to any driver with an elevated risk profile, allowing the behavior to be corrected before a more serious incident occurs.
While annual MVR checks have long been the accepted best practice to monitor drivers, continuous MVR monitoring offers fleet managers an accurate, up-to-date window on the fleet’s risk profile, helping to cut costs and minimize liability.
Safety is one of the trucking industry's most critical issues as it seeks to comply with tough new federal programs aimed at reducing crashes and improving safety records.
