Interstate’s fleet utilizes telematics GPS tracking technology and Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) to enhance driver and highway safety, increase security and improve operational efficiencies. Telematics technology allows fleet managers to monitor driver behavior while ELDs track hours of service, or driving time. GPS devices provide fleet managers with visibility into the exact location of the company’s tractors and trailers during transport.
In addition to leading edge technology, Interstate’s culture of safety consists of daily equipment and facilities inspections, specialized preventive maintenance programs, safety briefings, and recognition of safety achievements and milestones, among other initiatives.
