For the modern truck driver, the most used and relied upon auxiliary piece of equipment is the onboard computer. It connects the driver with dispatch, monitors their Hours Of Service, acts as a navigator/co-pilot and provides intuitive directions for their workflow. The Kriska Transportation Group (KTG) has always been a technology leader, from the early adoption of Automatic Onboard Recording Devices (AOBRD), to being one of the first Canadian fleets to be ELD compliant. Today, KTG is living up to this reputation by partnering with ISAAC Instruments and installing their solution across the fleet to modernize in-cab technology, capitalizing on both driver and business benefits.
Among many attributes, the ISAAC tablets, are portable, allowing drivers to use camera technology to document, record, and transmit any equipment defects found during pre-trip inspections. The solution also allows drivers to review future loads while in their bunk or from the comfort of their homes using the ISAAC driver portal. KTG plans to develop the functionality and app capability, much like a personal tablet is today.
KTG has begun deploying the first batch of trucks with ISAAC installed technology at JMF Transport and Mill Creek Motor Freight. KTG will continue its phased approach to deploy ISAAC at Kriska Holdings, Transpro Freight Systems, and BTC Express.
We look forward to getting feedback from our drivers and sharing their thoughts.
