Transport America (TA) has chosen the Lytx DriveCam program to protect the 1,800 drivers in its fleet.
“We agree with the Lytx principle that the driver plays the biggest role in safety,” said Gary Falldin, Transport America’s vice-president of safety and security. “For us, the driver has the final say on what is safe, and we’re going to give that driver the best tools to drive as safely as possible, including the DriveCam program.”
TA chose the DriveCam program after a trial with 50 of its trucks because in addition to being a good value, the program closely matched TA’s values.
“We stress culture, teamwork, training, and technology and the Lytx DriveCam supports each of those priorities,” said Falldin. “We want our drivers to feel empowered by what they learn from the DriveCam program’s coaching insights. It’s an excellent training tool, especially for newer drivers.”
TA is looking at safety a bit differently than most, according to Falldin.
“We’re most excited about seeing when a driver does something really good,” he said. “There are cases when our drivers get dragged into litigation, and the foregone conclusion is that the driver’s at fault, but having the DriveCam video will make the situation crystal-clear—and get our driver back on the road quicker.”
TA, a subsidiary of TransForce Inc, is a provider of truckload transportation and logistics services throughout much of the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Headquartered in Eagan MN, the company’s portfolio of services includes solo and team over-the-road, dedicated, regional, intermodal, and brokerage.
