HENSALL, Ont. — The private fleet of Hensall District Cooperative (HDC) has announced it is equipping 70 of its trucks with Shaw Tracking’s Mobile Computing Platform 200 and will automate driver logs.
The Shaw system will be integrated with Hensall’s existing software and dispatch systems to improve operational processes, the companies announced. Hensall said it will also be using Peformance Monitoring, Critical Event Reporting and Speedgauge applications to improve driver safety.
The company also announced its intent to eventually employ Shaw’s Navigo navigation system to reduce out-of-route miles.
