Linden Bulk Transportation, a subsidiary of Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation, recently partnered with SmartDrive Systems, which specializes in video-based safety and transportation intelligence for the trucking industry, to improve driver skills and positively impact safety.
The fully-managed SmartDrive solution provides commercial trucking fleets with driver performance insights and analysis that help improve driving skills, lower operating costs and improve safety.
“This represents our continued commitment to safety,” said Michael Salz, COO of Linden Bulk Transportation.
“Video is transforming the way fleets protect drivers and their businesses, and make the roads safer. Ultimately, the SmartDrive platform helps us identify specific driving skills that may require improvement so we can effectively mitigate risks.”
Salz said the video proof SmartDrive supplies will help them avoid discrepancies and inaccuracies, a key advantage in Linden’s ability to protect its drivers in cases of incidents on the road.
“This is a training tool that will help make our drivers and the general public safer,” he said. “The cameras are only triggered by events, protecting drivers’ privacy while also capturing video when it’s needed most.”
Odyssey’s bulk transportation businesses provide “safe, reliable and cost-effective service” for over-the-road tank truck, ISO tank for domestic and international shipments, and rail transfer services.
“We’re proud to add Linden Bulk Transportation to the growing list of fleets that recognize the value of video-based safety for risk reduction and driver exoneration,” said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive.
“Linden is a recognized leader in fleet safety, and we’re confident other tank truck fleets will take notice of the company’s decision to embrace the benefits of advanced transportation intelligence to optimize operations.”
