PHOENIX, Ariz. and MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — At its User Conference this week, PeopleNet announced the recipients of its 2015 Innovator of the Year Awards.
The awards are given to fleets that demonstrated exceptional leadership in using PeopleNet products and services. Winners are selected by PeopleNet’s product advisory council.
Taking the cake for the Canada category was Grimshaw Trucking. The company integrated PeopleNet service into its operations since 2006, including: eDriver Logs; Onboard Event Recording; Speed Monitoring; Vehicle Management; Dispatch Integration; and Messaging. Since using these systems, Grimshaw decreased its driver turnover to 8% representing a 50% reduction year-over-year which in turn saved them thousands of dollars in cost savings.
Star Transport won the award in the Under 100 Trucks category, Quickway Carriers for the 100-500 Trucks, and The Kroger Co. for 500+ Trucks category.
The awards were presented by PeopleNet’s executive vice-president Rick Ochsendorf.
“Year after year, PeopleNet is incredibly proud to recognize the industry leaders who set an example by using PeopleNet technology to accelerate progress and growth among their fleets,” he said. “Customers who invest in today’s innovation are also committing to a future of enhanced technology, safety and performance.”
