Boyle Transportation partners with Netradyne

June 16, 2022
Boyle, which ships freight for medical and military purposes, will use Netradyne's Driver•i camera technology. Boyle cites the safety need of its sensitive cargo and Driver•i's ability to help train drivers as reasons.

Netradyne has partnered with Boyle Transportation, a specialized transportation logistics provider for life sciences and defense companies, so Boyle can deploy Netradyne’s AI-powered Driver•i safety camera platform throughout its fleet.

Headquartered in Billerica, Massachusetts, Boyle Transportation specializes in transporting sensitive commodities for the U.S. military and medicine for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Boyle was one of the first to transport the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer's Global Supply manufacturing plant to distribution points across the country with their specialized temperature-controlled trucks, according to a press release.

Boyle Transportation selected Driver•i primarily for its reliability and heavy focus on improvement and positive recognition. Because of the sensitive nature of their shipments, Boyle also requires additional side cameras crucial to their operations.

"Netradyne is very driver-centric; it's refreshing to have a system that recognizes positive driving behavior, not just highlighting areas of improvement," said Michael Lasko, director of EHS and quality for Boyle. "The Driver•i app puts our drivers in control; they can check their metrics. That data is then presented to our safety department in an actionable way, which helps us determine how to provide the best possible assistance to our professional drivers. Driver•i enables us to identify individual training needs to help our drivers further develop their skills."

In 2021, Boyle was the first carrier to achieve ISO 14001:2015 certification for its Environmental Management System (EMS) in North America and was also awarded the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) Distinguished Service Award. They have been recognized as one of the 20 "Best Fleets to Drive For" by TCA and CarriersEdge for eight years in a row, the "Overall Best Fleet" in the smaller fleet category in 2021 and 2020, and a "Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation" by Women in Trucking.

"We're proud to partner with a first-class service provider like Boyle Transportation," said Mike DiNucci, CRO, Netradyne. "Driver•i aligns perfectly with Boyle's commitment to providing its drivers with the very best tools and technology to do their job safely, reliably, and effectively."
