Schuster equips E-Smart technology

Software firm’s active, real-time speed control is designed to decrease speeding events by up to 88%.

Le Mars, Iowa-based Schuster recently added E-Smart technology to its fleet of more than 400 trucks hauling refrigerated and dry-van goods.

E-Smart’s active, real-time speed control is designed to decrease speeding events by up to 88%, according to the Indiana-based software company.

Schuster’s technology deployment was achieved in three months.

“E-Smart has performed beyond our expectations, helping us to lower our speed events by over 75%,” said Steve Schuster, Schuster president and CEO. “We have been searching for a solution like this for years and E-Smart has provided it. We have also been able to utilize other features of the technology such as geofencing speeds in customer lots and low bridge avoidance.”

The E-Smart solution uses GPS technology to determine vehicle location and actively manage its maximum allowed speed, provide real-time safety alerts, and identify known hazard areas such as low clearance bridges, the company said. Leading fleets currently using the E-Smart technology report a significant decrease in speed-related infringements and accidents, and an “extensive savings” among toll-related fines.

“From the first meeting with Schuster management it was clear that they had envisioned this technology long before it was available,” said Mathieu Boivin, CEO at E-Smart. “This kind of visionary planning in safety is what industry leaders are made of.

“We are proud to partner with Schuster in helping them to achieve the highest safety standards.”
