BOSTON, Mass. – December 6, 2019 – LinkeDrive®, Inc., a leading provider of Driver Performance Management (DPM) solutions for the transportation industry, announces that Keller Logistics Group has selected and launched LinkeDrive’s comprehensive end-to-end DPM solution.
Founded in 1978, Keller Trucking, based out of Defiance, OH, is an affiliate of Keller Logistics Group. The family-owned and operated business of over 200 tractors and 550 dry van food grade trailers, services the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, and Southern United States. The award-winning organization was recognized for a second year in a row as one of the “Best Fleets to Drive For” by the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge.
“LinkeDrive’s DPM solution is truly an investment in our driver community and operational team,” said Jonathan Wolfrum, VP of Trucking at Keller Logistics. “They make it easy to reach every driver and make it a positive experience, from PedalCoach providing real-time in-cab feedback to the driver, to the daily and monthly reports, as well as the weekly coaching. We’ve also integrated a few third-party data sources, for example Comdata’s Fleet Advance Score and TMW data, which not only has a positive impact on our operational team, but also allows us to easily leverage that data in a more complete view of driver performance. Now, if a driver needs help in fuel purchasing compliance, LinkeDrive’s DPM solution not only automatically coaches them in this area, but their monthly MyScore report highlights this as an area to next focus on! We are pleased with the results and looking forward to additional integrations to widen our view of driver performance and engagement.”
LinkeDrive’s leading-edge and patented Driver Performance Management (DPM) solution begins in the cab with real-time coaching, followed by context-rich daily, weekly, and monthly engagements with drivers, tuned to organizational goals and objectives. An operationally streamlined and mobile-friendly portal is available to management, focused on ease-of-use and simplicity.
“From the inception of our organization, our focus has been on behavioral change through positive engagement, while distilling complex analytics to make data easily understandable for all to help organizations exceed their goals,” Jeff Baer, LinkeDrive Founder and CEO. “Getting to best-in-class performance isn’t simply focusing on the individuals that need the most help, but it’s helping everyone get better, showing even those drivers in the middle, as well as your best drivers where they too can improve. Through machine learning and smart automations, while leveraging third-party data sources combined with our rich data set, we’re providing an end-to-end holistic solution that really runs itself… all while helping our customers achieve some pretty massive ROIs!”
