ALPHARETTA, Ga. — FleetRisk Advisors and Dupre’ Transport have concluded a pilot project which allowed the company to establish ‘risk signatures’ to help reduce risk and enhance productivity.
Dupre’ combined its historical data with data gathered through FleetRisk Advisors’ Transportation Risk Analytics Center (TRAC) and then ran a series of analytical processes with regards to risk and profitability, the companies announced. The team was then able to determine risk signatures which the Dupre’ management team will use to develop action plans to improve driver safety.
The carrier was pleased with the results of the pilot project and has entered into a seven year strategic agreement with FleetRisk Advisors.
The pilot project included three procedures: aggregation analytics; risk signature analytics; and predictive modeling and pattern recognition. As a result of their findings, Dupre’ has announced it is implementing several predictive models with FleetRisk Advisors including a driver scoring model, a new applicant scoring model, a dispatch risk-score model and a customer profitability model.
“At Dupre’, our mission is ‘Safe Service That’s Profitable.’ Over the years our management team has spent countless man-hours running reports and analyzing data searching for the information we need to run a safer fleet. FleetRisk has been able to give us a window into our operations we never had before,” said Reggie Dupre’, president and CEO of Dupre’ Transport. “As one of the safest fleets in our industry, we know the value of constantly improving operations and mitigating risks. This partnership with FleetRisk can help us, especially since the low hanging fruit is gone. ”
Dupre’ went on to say the company will be able to reduce incidents by identifying drivers most at risk and providing them with the training and support they need.
"Our training dollars and energy can be directed to those who need it the most,” says Al LaCombe, director of safety/training. “In addition, we now have a better idea of where our safety programs are succeeding, and where we can make changes.”
