KeepTruckin's Compliance Hub and mobile Fleet App includes advanced AI technology to help fleets automatically resolve unidentified trips in real-time and a native integration with Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA) scores to reduce risk and lower costs, the company pointed out.
With the current labor shortages and strains on the supply chain, hours of service (HOS) violations are up almost 35% from 2020 to 2021. "With nuclear verdicts citing HOS violations on the rise, skyrocketing insurance costs, and a tight labor market, it has never been more critical to proactively manage compliance practices to stay in business—and keep operations running safely and efficiently," KeepTruckin added.
Fleets can now automate compliance using three components:
- The Compliance Hub & Fleet App: The Compliance Hub is a new dashboard experience that offers fleets deeper HOS insights with violation breakdowns, driver leaderboards, and cycle trends over time. Critical compliance information can also be viewed in the KeepTruckin Fleet App, where managers can see driver logs and duty status on the go.
- Smart Trip Match: Organizations can resolve unidentified trips through automation with the company's Smart Trip Match feature. Proprietary AI models analyze historical patterns to automatically assign the correct driver to the correct trip for managerial review. Upon confirmation, drivers are then notified to help save time for safety departments and prevent violations.
- CSA Insights & DRIVE: CSA data integrated with driving data helps organizations identify risk factors. According to KeepTruckin, proactive monitoring helps fleets reduce risk with forecasted CSA scores, intervention thresholds, and violation breakdowns. "CSA Insights and the proprietary DRIVE risk score can be used together to design a proactive safety program that can help reduce accidents and costs, improve driver performance, and retain top performers," the company said in a statement.
KeepTruckin customer Expressway Logistics reported it has been able to focus on realizing its goals of scaling operations and expanding its fleet by using the automated compliance management suite.
“We were able to reduce our insurance rates by 25% per driver,” said Ellen McDonald, safety director at Expressway Logistics. “We cut our time managing compliance in half. Plus, we reduced HOS violations by 67%, and our CSA score dropped from 99 to 59. This all makes a huge impact on where we can take our business.”
