C.R. England

At C.R. England, safety is embedded in everything they do. That’s why when they decided to include video safety, they tested three vendors and selected SmartDrive. Our experience with SmartDrive was such that, SmartDrive was more willing to innovate, and be creative, and think outside of the box. I think we found most of the other vendors weren’t as willing to go with us into uncharted territory and do things that were unique.” Other factors that helped C.R. England decide on SmartDrive … “Creativity, knowledgeable team, and a willingness to work with us.”

Knight Transportation

Safety is one of the biggest priorities at Knight Transportation. SmartDrive not only helped Knight stay in line with some of the advancements in the industry but was also instrumental in helping lower initial claims costs and see what the drivers see on the road. In addition, SmartDrive helped Knight impact driver behavior, which helped lower its risk factor in accidents. “SmartDrive has helped us know our drivers even better by really getting down to the nitty-gritty of their driving behavior.”

“There were so many factors into what we would miss if we didn’t have it. We would miss the opportunity to mitigate claims. We would miss the opportunity to help improve driving behavior within our fleets. We would miss the opportunity to see what’s going on out there on the road and what are some of the challenges. Yes, you can do those things without video, sure, but how effective are you going to be without it?”

Arctic Glacier

Adopting SmartDrive was a key element in shifting Arctic Glacier’s culture to safety being a number one priority. Now, more than ever, it is a tool to protect the company and its drivers. In addition, Extended Recording has been an extra bonus in providing information not readily available with a standard video program. As a result, Arctic Glacier sees SmartDrive as an extension of its safety program; it’s not just a partner. SmartDrive is part of the Arctic family. Since implementation, Arctic has reduced its unsafe DOT violations by 50%. In addition, the company has seen a 90% reduction in both seatbelt and cell phone violations.

Smith Transport

Todd Smith, President of Smith Transport, believes that SmartDrive is the technology of the future when it comes to safety. “I think when you look at the industry that we all play in today, and you look at the exposure that we have with the risk on a daily basis, if you can minimize that risk through data, why wouldn’t you do it? Once you see this technology and understand the benefits to it – and your drivers understand the benefits to it – it’s a no-brainer to do it. We’re excited about partnering up with SmartDrive and making this happen.”

You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

“We thought we knew what was going on out on the road, but we had no idea. SmartDrive opened our eyes to what was happening on the road. It’s not only changed the culture, but it’s helped us set a record with our insurance loss ratio. It’s more than paid for itself.”

Carter Express

Carter Express, of Anderson, Indiana, is an international motor carrier and logistics company with 750 power units. Carter made the decision to deploy the SmartDrive program because the company believed that it would result in safer driving behaviors from its drivers and that it would also improve its CSA Scores and help in litigation. Since deploying the SmartDrive video-based safety program, Carter felt compelled to create a video to help its insurance carrier understand the company’s safety culture, the people and the investment in technology that the company is undergoing.

Carter Express

Carter Express has always prided itself on a strong safety culture. It also prides itself on being on top of technology. As a result, Carter took a look at SmartDrive.

“After we did the trial and saw what our drivers are putting up with out there on the road, and how much SmartDrive protects them, the decision became very easy,” stated John Paugh, Carter Express CEO. “In fact, I was so impressed with the results of the trial, I actually put a camera in my own truck.”

Hear why Carter deployed the SmartDrive video program, drivers’ acceptance of the program and how it’s protecting them against fraudulent claims. “SmartDrive is the next step to grow as a company and it ensures we stay in that top tier of safe fleets.”

Oakley Transport

Oakley Transportation is the only ISO-certified food grade hauler in North America. They understand that exonerations are only one reason for having the SmartDrive solution throughout their fleet. “There’s peace of mind having this in your back pocket should there be a subrogation claim or a collision. You know 100% that your driver was focused. Video doesn’t lie.”

Skyline Transportation

We considered ourselves a safe carrier but then our performance started to slip. We determined it was time to look at our total insurance costs. We quickly realized that approximately 85% of our total insurance cost was related to rear-end collisions and sideswipes – a direct result of following too close or distracted driving. With the SmartDrive program, we took that from 85% of our accident cost down to below 14%. SmartDrive lets your whole company know that you’re serious about safety.

O&G Industries

“There’s no grey anymore. It’s black and white and we have the evidence to prove it.” Mike Ferry appreciates the power of video to not only make his fleet safer, but also to reduce customer complaints and claims. He values extended recording to capture low impact events and mystery damage, and 360 video to understand backing and delivery incidents. He’s particularly excited that, “Since implementing the SmartDrive program, we’ve seen a decrease in handheld device use of 56%!”

Central Oregon Truck Company

Rick Williams, CEO, Central Oregon Truck Company, recommends everyone look at video as a key component to their safety culture and safety program. “With video, there’s some real quantifiable ROI. We can teach our drivers to be safer drivers. We can subrogate against other drivers who have hit us and have their insurance pay versus ours. And we’ve had drivers get tickets dismissed because they weren’t doing the things they were ticketed for.”

Pottle’s Transportation

According to Barry Pottle, President of Pottle’s Transportation, “Your drivers are your biggest asset. When accidents happen, you need a way to protect them and SmartDrive does that. With a cab-facing camera, you can prove that he or she was doing everything right. And, cameras provide an opportunity to coach – both positive and negative – on what your drivers are doing.”

Why SmartDrive

More and more fleets are turning to the SmartDrive video-based safety solution. From accident reduction and exonerations to reduced maintenance and insurance, the SmartDrive program produces results. Request a demo and see the results today.

In-Cab Cameras

Fleets are choosing to install both road facing and in-cab facing cameras so they can really know what’s going on and coach their drivers’ behavior to reduce accidents throughout their fleet.

“Road facing is a great start but if you don’t have an interior view, you’re cutting yourself short. If you don’t have that and you have a driver who has a bad habit, how are you going to be able to help that person?” The road facing camera really limits your view. You’re just seeing one side of what’s really going on.”

Driver Adoption

Initially, fleets may be reluctant to install in-cab cameras due to driver pushback. But, this is easily overcome when drivers learn that they are in control of when the camera activates an event and that it can exonerate them when they are not at fault in an accident. It’s saved their lives, their CDL and their careers. Find out why.

Cypress Truck Lines

Matthew Penland of Cypress Trucks needed a way to find out what really happened in an accident so his drivers weren’t falsely accused of causing them. “We believe that many times when we were in accidents, we were falsely accused. Our driver was not in the wrong. Video was an opportunity for us to look at some definitive answers.”

“Video gives us some accountability. Never before have we been able to know what’s going on with the truck when it comes to an accident or even just being out on the road. What’s happening with that driver – whether he’s speeding or going around corners too fast. SmartDrive has been a game changer when it comes to training drivers to drive properly and safely and changing some of that behavior in the driver. “

Watch Matthew’s video and learn the power of coaching. “We can prevent accidents by coaching our drivers and being involved in that coaching aspect. We’ve seen results where we’ve been able to improve driver behavior.”

Loomis Armored

Safety involves everyone – including unions. Randy Sheltra of Loomis Armored had no problem convincing 45 different unions that video safety was the answer in saving lives. “We were able to demonstrate that it can exonerate your union dues paying member in the event something would happen. I don’t see how anybody would not want this as an additional tool within the company.”

Watch Randy’s video and learn why he says, “The old saying goes, ‘A picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth 10,000 words.’ And, it’s just indisputable.”

Postal Fleet Services

The numbers don’t lie. 85% risk reduction. Once he saw the results, Jeremy Collins of Postal Fleet Services was convinced that the SmartDrive program was the answer. “You can actually predict what happens based on driver behavior. We can see the trends and identify the risk before the accident happens. It’s the best tangible way that you can receive self-measurement of your safety program.”

“The whole goal is to improve our driver base, improve the quality of the drivers we have and eliminate the accidents. SmartDrive does that.

Watch Jeremy’s video and learn why he selected the SmartDrive program. “It’s not data overload. It’s user friendly. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to use. I enjoy that.”

Conico Oil

Protecting drivers and protecting his company is what it’s all about for Dan Baillargeon. “Within the first week of having the SmartDrive program, we had a sideswipe event where the driver tried to blame our drivers and we were able to show with the system that our driver was in his lane, didn’t do anything wrong and completely exonerated the driver. After that, the rest of my drivers wanted it on board.”

Knight Transportation

Knight Transportation, one of North America’s largest and most diversified truckload transportation companies, undertook an extensive head-to-head evaluation of video safety programs after experiencing a sustained increase in litigation activity involving its fleet, much of which was fraudulent and costing the company time and money. With many drivers having purchased and installed their own “crash recorders” to exonerate them when not at fault in a collision, Knight conducted extensive discussions with its driver community about the value of video-based solutions. As a result, company leadership determined it was the right time to investigate solutions to meet their safety needs and business objectives.
