SmartDrive & Nussbaum Recognized as 2017 SDCE 100

We are honored to be recognized along with SmartDrive in this year’s Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 List for our work in utilizing SmartDrive’s technology to implement an innovative scorecard program.

Our program is designed to take advantage of SmartDrive’s SmartIQ Transportation Intelligence Suite along with real-time data from the truck’s engine control module(ECM) to determine a score across four categories including smooth driving, speed management, throttle usage, and space management. The result is that we now have real insight into driver’s habits and skills, and can reward our drivers for their actual behaviors. It also allows us to provide actionable feedback helping drivers to excel in both safety practices and fuel economy.

"Nussbaum exemplifies the spirit of the SDCE 100, leading the pack with its measurable operational improvements tied to adoption of the SmartDrive SmartIQ™ Transportation Intelligence Suite. We are honored to be partnered with a company at the forefront of transportation safety and fuel efficiency.”

- Steve Mitgang, SmartDrive CEO -

This program has had great success for our drivers and company. From the launch of the program in June 2016 to April 2017 we saw a 27 percent improvement in our Compliance Safety Accountability Crash Indicator as well as having zero preventable DOT-recordable accidents. We feel these accomplishments speak not only to the efficacy of our program but to the amazing professionalism and quality of our drivers in embracing this program and working each day to master their craft.
