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?
See how we do it.
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.
Access comprehensive driver risk profiles featuring CSA and MVR monitoring for unmatched insight into employee driving behavior, helping you proactively stay informed of 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, all of which can be used to prevent and prepare for interventions.
Utilize data to tell an accurate story around your current safety culture with the industry’s only IRT scorecard, getting ahead of understanding your safety culture score compared to traditional CSA scoring.
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.
