600 Driver Intermodal Drayage Fleet
- Realized an organized way to gather and retain data
- Achieved full system integration; single point of record for all data
- Unlocked flexible reporting to gain deeper insights
- Implemented a proactive approach to accident prevention
ARL Transport is one of the largest intermodal drayage companies in the United States and Canada, managing ten fleets with 42 terminal locations and 600 owner-operators. They are proud of their efforts to maintain environmental responsibility in all of their operations, always put their customers first, and keep safety top of mind. ARL was also awarded “Drayman of the Year” by three separate organizations.
Like many fleets, their Safety Team used a combination of spreadsheets to log accidents and claims alongside various third-party and in-house safety systems. They wanted to get away from disparate systems and spreadsheets. ARL President, Ron Faherty explained:
“We have been looking for something to modernize the tracking of accidents and claims for over ten years.”
Their team also wanted to start proactively addressing driver behavior to prevent accidents and incidents before they occur, opposed to taking reactive action in hindsight.
In their search for a solution, ARL discovered the industry-leading driver management platform, the Idelic Safety Suite. ARL was immediately intrigued by the ability to integrate all of their fleet systems and the risk management power in the Idelic Watch List.
ARL’s Safety Team replaced all their spreadsheets with the Safety Suite. They began accessing data from FMCSA, ELDs, MVR monitoring, and telematics in one platform alongside their accident, claims, and internal system data.
Across all 42 terminals, their driver data was normalized, accessible and reportable in one platform. They accomplished a single point of record for all safety data with easy, flexible reporting across employees, equipment, accidents, and claims.
With their fleet data integrated, ARL employed the Idelic Watch list to unlock predictive analytics, identifying their drivers most at-risk for an accident across their entire fleet. Meanwhile, they intend to use the Safety Suite and this 360-degree view of drivers and driver data to easily administer award programs for their safest drivers.
ARL unlocked the flexible reporting they needed to help their drivers. They can now report across a single terminal, or all 42 terminals at once. This precision and flexibility enable full end-to-end management of their drivers’ performance including behavior management, training, corrective action, awards, and compliance.
“The software is so user-friendly and easy to navigate.”
