The capability comes from implementation of the J.J. Keller’s Encompass online tool. It features an internet-based dashboard and real-time view of key information about LeSaint’s fleet. An onboard recorder automates electronic logs, driver vehicle inspection reports (DVIRs) and additional in-cab performance reporting. Bill Lanshaw, LeSaint’s vice president of transportation, said the technology enables the service provider “to let our customers know exactly where their shipments are and estimated times of arrival within any given time period.” DOT-compliant electronic logs can alert the company to any driver habits of concern, such as hard braking, evasive maneuvers and speeding. The tool can also locate a driver at any time. LeSaint provides transportation, warehousing and inventory control services, along with supporting technology.
