Idelic, a safety and operations focused software provider for the trucking industry, and A&R Logistics, North America’s leading supply chain services company to the chemical industry, today announced a partnership through which A&R will deploy the Idelic Safety Suite® to integrate its fleet following multiple recent acquisitions. The company acquired First Choice Logistics and L.T. Harnett Trucking in February and August of 2020, respectively, and last month acquired Luckey Trucking.
The acquisitions expanded A&R’s fleet to nearly 1,000 drivers, with those drivers’ data being fed into two different technology systems. Safety Suite will consolidate that data into a single platform and streamline A&R’s driver management, providing a holistic view of driver data in an easy-to-configure dashboard. A&R will now have a single source of information for driver performance trends, accident and claims management information, and DOT documentation to help ensure safety and compliance at the individual driver and broader fleet-levels.
“Safety and innovation are at the center of everything we do at A&R Logistics, and we view this partnership as being at the nexus of those two things,” said Dionne Quiachon, A&R’s Chief Environmental, Health, Safety & Security Officer. “As our business continues to grow, having a platform that streamlines fleet management will be increasingly important as both a safety tool and one that increases our operational efficiency more broadly.”
“It’s wonderful to partner with a company that shares our number one core value of safety, which is why we’re so excited to help A&R Logistics realize the full benefit of our technology,” said Hayden Cardiff, Founder and Co-CEO of Idelic. “We built Safety Suite so our roads would be a safer place to drive on, and having visibility into a fleet’s data and the ability to manage risk is vital to that.”
Idelic helps transportation fleets save time, money, and lives. The Idelic Safety Suite® is the most comprehensive driver management platform in the transportation industry, consolidating all fleet data systems into one single data management platform, giving fleets unparalleled visibility into their drivers’ behavior and safety operations. With an industry-leading Driver Watch List that utilizes advanced, proprietary Machine Learning (ML) technology, the Idelic Safety Suite helps fleets prevent crashes, reduce turnover, and lower insurance costs.
