Commercial trucking is a vital component of America’s economy — the $700 billion industry is responsible for transporting 80 percent of the country’s cargo. Being a truck driver is the most common job in 29 states and also happens to be the most dangerous job too. Over 500,000 truck crashes kill around 5,000 people each year with one person being injured or killed every 16 minutes.
In a high-risk industry like trucking, what are you doing to prioritize safety?
The industry is facing challenges incurring additional costs for trucking companies. Overall costs are rising as a result of taxes, increased fuel prices and driver wages, making it increasingly difficult to find qualified drivers. There are avoidable costs plaguing businesses, including one-fifth of all commercial vehicle roadside inspections resulting in a vehicle placed out of service.
It’s more important than ever to utilize technology helping curtail the ever-increasing risk and cost. Our Qorta platform simplifies the never-ending data feed, enabling customers to identify trends with ease and take action to remain compliant while preventing future violations, interventions and out of service orders.
Discover how much your company can save on claims each year with Qorta.
Access comprehensive driver risk profiles featuring telematics, CSA and MVR monitoring for unmatched insight into employee driving behavior, helping you proactively stay informed of high-risk trips, new activity, expirations and roadside inspections.
Spot trends to guide intervention efforts using comprehensive data like those contributing most to your CSA score, most common violations, best performing drivers and more. We integrate regulatory, telematics, license and claims data sources into a single, comprehensive Risk Index, making it easy to analyze, prevent and respond to risk.
Utilize data to tell an accurate and complete story around your current safety culture and strengthen it by identifying which employees should and shouldn’t be behind the wheel. Dedicate your company to a culture of safety by enrolling high-risk drivers in recommended training programs long before they fall outside of your safety policy.
With the increase in driver risk and the growing threat of nuclear verdicts year after year, it becomes more critical for trucking companies to proactively protect their drivers, brand and bottom line.
Even though the average price for gasoline has dropped below $4.00 a gallon nationwide, diesel prices now average above $5.00 a gallon across the country. We explore strategies fleet managers can implement to combat this and protect their bottom line.
Sometimes even the most seasoned commercial fleet managers in the industry may not know what makes up the CSA methodology. Discover the fundamentals of CSA scores for trucking companies.
More than ever before, we’re identifying drivers that have issues with their license and taking action before they get on the road. We know these issues would have been discovered months later with our old system, but now we can take care of these issues much sooner.
