  • Performing of closed-loop inspections through automated Electronic Daily Vehicle Inspection Report (eDVIR), which integrates mechanic app in real-time
  • Tracking of fuel use and vehicle maintenance
  • Use of GPS to track fleet assets
  • Incorporation of an ELD self-certified compliant device that meets guidelines set forth by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) ELD Mandate Scheduling

Noted Co-founder Mark Walton, “Gorilla Safety is leading the way in helping move forward what is traditionally a cumbersome paper-laden process that has long been the standard in the trucking industry. Gorilla Safety’s solution directly addresses a void in the marketplace by placing all the functions for successfully managing fleets into one, easy-to-use and easy-to-access mobile app that improves productivity, increases profitability and lowers insurance claims and premiums”

Co-founder Tommy Johnson added: “Insurance companies can also benefit from their clients using Gorilla Safety as they realize that vehicles managed through our mobile app are safer for the roads, and there will be substantial reductions in payouts of claims when used.”

Gorilla Safety helps combat rising costs of insurance claims. It has the potential to reduce claims and, in turn, lower insurance premiums.
