In-cab technology continues to advance rapidly, and Shaker Logistics is partnering with Samsara to upgrade hardware and software across its entire fleet. Replacing Omnitracs and SmartDrive, Samsara’s technology eliminates the in-cab screen and instead runs entirely from a driver’s smartphone. The technology has a driver-friendly interface that makes it easy to log miles, scan delivery documents, and complete training.
“We looked at several options and were really impressed with Samsara’s interface and capabilities,” said Greg Bedrosian, manager of Shaker’s truckload fleet. “It’s a huge upgrade for our fleet and should make our entire operations more streamlined and efficient,” he said.
Samsara’s technology integrates driver safety and coaching, routing and dispatch, compliance and ELD, and document management. Video-based driver safety training delivers in-cab feedback and enables Shaker to reward safe driving practices as part of its quarterly driver bonus program.
“Running a truckload fleet safely requires a ton of coordination between our dispatch team, maintenance, drivers, and office staff,” Bedrosian said. “Samsara is a huge step forward for Shaker in making that coordination seamless.”
