San Diego’s SmartDrive Systems, a provider of driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, announced that Kenco, which offers integrated logistics solutions, real estate services, and material handling equipment, has selected SmartDrive's event recording system for roll-out across its entire nationwide fleet to improve safety and lower costs.
With insurance costs on the rise, Kenco sought a video-based safety solution that provides actionable insight into safety events, but also includes a structured coaching workflow to facilitate consistent implementation of the SmartDrive program across the fleet.
"Safety is a priority for our company and we continue to invest in solutions that help us reduce risk while improving operational efficiency," said Jeff Tanner, vice president of risk management for Kenco Management Services. "Through our partnership with SmartDrive, we expect that we will be able to better manage our operational costs and deliver outstanding service, all while protecting customers' freight and keeping our drivers safe."
SmartDrive's unique open-platform approach captures the broadest spectrum of risk in the industry, so that fleets can focus on coaching the right drivers at the right time. The result is improved safety and reduced costs. Kenco plans to leverage SmartDrive's easy-to-use Response Center and its "3-Steps to Coach" workflow.
