LAS VEGAS, Nev. — A new study from PeopleNet shows that the company’s users have better safety results when compared against the US national average. The average was identified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Motor Carrier Management Information System.
Specific areas where PeopleNet users outperformed the industry are driver out of service, vehicle out of service and driver enforcement rate, according to the study.
“These results simply confirm feedback we’ve been receiving from our customers for years. In addition to our onboard computers, PeopleNet’s applications for electronically monitoring driver Hours-of-Service (eDriver Logs) and engine and driver performance (PerformX) further improve safety results,” said PeopleNet CEO Ron Konezny.
The following information compares PeopleNet user results with FMCSA averages and reflects PeopleNet results based on the data from hundreds of customers, all operating fleets with 50 or more vehicles:
Driver Out of Service Vehicle Out of Service Driver Enforcement Industry Average 6.9% 22.6% 17.9% PeopleNet* 2.3% 12.7% 6.3% (*fleets with eDriver Logs deployed in 75% or more of their vehicles )
