Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Crosby Anderson Freights is a medium sized trucking company, serving many clients all over the United States. The company was incorporated in 2016, and with the changes in HoS rules and ELD mandate, Percy Crosby, the fleet manager for Crosby Anderson approached Matrack Incorporation for best solutions in electronic logging devices and related services:
As a fleet manager, Percy Crosby was faced with the challenge of ensuring that all their drivers functioned within the rules of Hours of Service, as laid down by DoT. He wanted a solution that could help in adhering with DoT rules, as well as help in overcoming the following challenges:
Hours Of Service
It was difficult to keep an authentic track of the number of hours a driver was actually on duty and driving, along with ensuring that no regulations of Hours of Service were being broken.
Wasting Precious Time
Keeping a track of idle time was challenging. Quite often the driver and vehicle would spend unnecessary time waiting for proper instructions at loading/unloading dock, wasting precious organisational resources.
Once the vehicle was out of the office/work area, it was hard to maintain constant communication with the drivers, and frustrating to keep asking them of their whereabouts.
There was a possibility that drivers drove at a faster speed, thereby risking their own safety along with the vehicle and cargo, as well as other drivers on the road.
The organisation also wanted a way to minimise their expenses towards the fines they had to pay for violation of DoT rules.
Crosby Anderson Freight, Inc. has been able to minimise its cost and maximise the use of its resources to have an optimal outcome. After getting Matrack ELD services, Mr. Crosby mentions the following benefits to their organisation:
