Program Marks FleetRisk's Largest Fleet-Wide Deployment

SAN DIEGO, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FleetRisk Advisors, a strategic business unit of Omnitracs, LLC, today announced that multi-national trucking company Schneider will deploy FleetRisk Advisors' Driver Safety and Driver Retention models across its entire fleet. During a three-month pilot using FleetRisk's model, Schneider achieved a significant reduction in crash rates per million miles and driver turnover in the remediated group of drivers[1]. Following these tremendous results, Schneider decided to expand adoption across all lines of business in 22 states and 42 cities, consisting of more than 13,500 drivers.

"I have always believed that crashes don't happen by accident and that prevention is key to safety," said Don Osterberg, senior vice president of safety and security at Schneider. "We have long recognized the power of data, but were impressed by the initial results we saw with FleetRisk's models. This will be an important initiative as we continue to foster a strong safety culture."

Rob Reich, vice president of driver recruiting at Schneider added, "FleetRisk Advisors has been instrumental in helping us lower our turnover by identifying drivers we need to talk to. 

In addition to predictive analysis, FleetRisk's remediation plans ensure our fleet managers connect with drivers, facilitating closer relationships to correct issues before they become problems. The result is increased driver satisfaction and reduced churn."

Schneider is the premier provider of truckload, intermodal and logistics services. Offering the broadest portfolio in the industry, Schneider's solutions include Regional, Long-Haul, Expedited, Dedicated, Bulk, Intermodal, Brokerage, Cross-Dock Logistics, Supply Chain Management and Port Logistics.

A $3.6 billion company, Schneider has been delivering superior customer experiences and safely getting it done for nearly 80 years. For more information about Schneider, visit www.schneider.com or follow on Twitter: @WeAreSchneider.

By analyzing a fleet's historical data, FleetRisk's Driver Safety and Retention models identify patterns and/or changes in driver behavior that correlate with preventable crashes and voluntary terminations in the near future. This enables fleets to better identify drivers more likely to be involved in a crash or leave the company and follow the recommended coaching plans to mitigate their risks.

"We have only just begun our journey to realize the widespread benefits predictive analytics and remediation solutions can bring to fleets," said Vikas Jain, vice president and general manager at FleetRisk Advisors. "Schneider's adoption of our predictive analytics technology is further validation that our models are critical to fleet operations—improving safety, driver retention and the bottom line."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
