K&B Transportation partners with E-Smart to enhance safety with dynamic speed management technology

K&B Transportation to equip fleet with E-SMART

May 9, 2024
K&B adopts E-SMART dynamic speed management technology to improve safety.

E-SMART recently announced that K&B Transportation will equip its fleet of more than 700 trucks with its E-SMART dynamic speed management technology. 

“K&B is excited to partner with E-SMART,” said Lance Evans, director of safety at K&B.  “E-SMART technology is unlike anything else on the market because it assists K&B in managing its fleet in a way that no other technology can. K&B is looking forward to implementing E-SMART across the fleet in order to better serve our drivers and customers.”

Effectively decreasing speeding events by more than 90%, E-SMART uses positioning technology to determine vehicle location to manage max speed to the posted speed limit. E-SMART also leverages this technology for low bridge collision avoidance, active geofencing, and remote vehicle immobilization. A decrease in speed-related accidents and infringements as well as improved CSA scores has been reported by fleets using E-SMART technology.  

“K&B is clearly a leader in safety technology,” said Joe Thell, SVP of sales and business development at E-SMART. “From our initial conversations with K&B, it became clear that K&B is on the forefront of finding solutions to integrate its fleet into the ever-developing world of technology in order to address issues transportation companies regularly face on today’s roadways and the transportation market. We are proud to partner with K&B in their efforts to make their fleet and the roadways safer.”

E-SMART also recently announced E-SMART Reverse, a new capability that adds a backing speed limiter to reduce the risk of accidents at customer and company facilities. Companies can set speed limits for commercial vehicles on their properties using E-SMART Reverse. In geofenced locations, maximum reverse speeds can be set. When a driver attempts to accelerate in reverse faster than is allowed within a company-specified speed zone, E-SMART limits the throttle and prevents the vehicle from exceeding the threshold.
