A&R acquired First Choice Logistics and L.T. Harnett Trucking in February and August, 2020, respectively, and more recently added Luckey Trucking.
“Safety and innovation are at the center of everything we do at A&R Logistics, and we view this partnership as being at the nexus of those two things,” said Dionne Quiachon, A&R’s chief environmental, health, safety and security officer. “As our business continues to grow, having a platform that streamlines fleet management will be increasingly important as both a safety tool and one that increases our operational efficiency more broadly.”
The acquisitions expanded A&R’s fleet to nearly 1,000 drivers, with those drivers’ data being fed into two different technology systems. Safety Suite will consolidate that data into a single platform and streamline A&R’s driver management, providing a holistic view of driver data in an easy-to-configure dashboard, Idelic said.
A&R now will have a single source of information for driver performance trends, accident and claims management information, and DOT documentation to help ensure safety and compliance at the individual driver and broader fleet-levels.
“It’s wonderful to partner with a company that shares our No. 1 core value of safety, which is why we’re so excited to help A&R Logistics realize the full benefit of our technology,” said Hayden Cardiff, founder and co-CEO of Idelic.
“We built Safety Suite so our roads would be a safer place to drive on, and having visibility into a fleet’s data and the ability to manage risk is vital to that.”
