Freight Hauler Deploys Video Safety Monitoring and Coaching Approach for Drivers

Family-owned international freight hauler, Heyl Truck Lines, has deployed a video-based safety platform to help the fleet protectits drivers by identifying high-risk incidents and enabling proactive coaching to reduce collision frequency, improve safety and reinforce good driving skills.

Noted Mackenzie Heyl Schaffert, controller at Heyl Truck Lines, “By engaging drivers early in open dialogue about the benefits of video-based safety, we were able to alleviate any concerns they may have had, while educating them on how the SmartDrive solution works and assuring them our goal is protecting them from false claims.”

Established in 1949, Heyl is a for-hire refrigerated carrier that runs local and regional hauls as well as over-the-road routes. With 380 company trucks, Heyl is dedicated to providing consistent quality service, and prides itself on being an early adopter of technology solutions designed to optimize customer service, fleet safety and regulatory compliance.

In the face of industry-wide concerns about skyrocketing litigation and claims costs, and rising insurance premiums, Heyl looked to a video approached, provided by SmartDrive, as an advanced safety technology to protect drivers and proactively manage its company risk.
