MARKHAM, Ont. — CarriersEdge turned five today, having provided more than 100,000 training modules to Canadian drivers.
The company, which provides online driver improvement tools, was founded in the fall of 2005 with a basic set of safety and compliance tools, the company recalls. It now offers more than 40 modules, in English and French, covering Canadian and US regulations and industry best practices. It also marked exponential growth through the recession, according to CarriersEdge president Mark Murrell.
“We’ve been growing steadily at about 70% year-over-year through the recession, and most of that has come from referrals and recommendations,” Murrell said. “As we continue to expand the library with more titles – like the recently released Winter Driving course – we expect that growth to continue.”
Other topics covered by CarriersEdge include: defensive driving; hours-of-service; vehicle inspection; dangerous goods; and owner/operator business skills; driver wellness; and fuel efficiency.
