Wadhams selects Safety Suite

Idelic’s driver management platform unlocks control of data, operations for carrier’s tanker, general commodity fleets

Wadhams Enterprises subsidiaries Rist Transport, ARG Trucking and Earl T Wadhams recently deployed the Idelic Safety Suite in an effort to improve safety and reduce risk.

With Safety Suite, Idelic’s driver management platform, the Wadhams fleets will be streamlining workflows, identifying at-risk drivers with machine learning models, and segmenting processes across its three divisions, Idelic said.

Wadhams is a family-owned, multi-faceted carrier with two tanker business units hauling milk and petroleum, as well as two business units hauling general commodities both LTL and TL, headquartered in Phelps NY. The carrier invested in the safety and risk management solutions in Safety Suite to maintain high standards of prompt, professional and safe service.

“Safety Suite is our safety and risk management solution of choice because we believe it can help us continue to live out our core values of reliability, flexibility, integrity and customer service—ultimately achieving our goal of being the employer of choice and carrier of choice,” said Steve Wadhams, president of Wadhams Enterprises.

Wadhams was looking for a solution that would streamline processes within their safety, risk and compliance departments, Idelic said. Their ideal solution would also give them control over driver data, giving them visibility into insights like which drivers are most at-risk of a crash and enabling them to take proactive action to prevent a crash before it occurs.

Safety Suite breaks down barriers between a fleet’s safety, risk and compliance teams by giving them control over their data and enabling cross-department workflows. With Safety Suite, every department can work from the same platform and share the data critical to their operations. Risk managers can seamlessly act based on a trainer’s on-the-ground insights, and compliance managers can access data generated by the safety team. By giving fleets a single platform to conduct operations, Safety Suite empowers them to integrate their workflows, data and performance.

Safety Suite also uses machine learning models to analyze fleet data, identify which drivers are most at-risk of a crash, inform managers why they’re at-risk, and help prescribe corrective action to improve behavior and prevent crashes from happening in the first place, the company added.

Wadhams was also looking for a solution that could effectively segment their three fleets in order to optimize workflows. With Safety Suite, multi-fleet carriers like Wadhams can perform processes in a workspace containing all of their cross-fleet data or they can set up unique workspaces for each division of their fleet. This gives carriers like Wadhams the ability to view their bulk transportation and commodity fleets separately or as a whole.

“We’re excited to help family-owned businesses like Wadhams step into the future of safety and risk management,” said Hayden Cardiff, founder and co-CEO of Idelic. “Their core values align perfectly with our core values of safety, innovation, passion, quality and collaboration, so we see this partnership as a perfect fit.”
