Liquid bulk hauler Quality Carriers has partnered with technology supplier Isaac Instruments to improve the in-cab experience for its drivers, the companies said in a joint announcement.
Through this agreement, Quality Carriers will deploy Isaac’s electronic logging devices and fleet-management technology across its fleet of more than 2,500 vehicles operated by its company drivers, affiliate drivers and owner-operators by the end of 2022.
“The promise of an enhanced driver experience and a simplified driver interface is exactly what we were looking for,” Randy Strutz, president of Quality Carriers, said in the Jan. 10 announcement.
Isaac’s technology is designed to streamline drivers’ workflows in addition to automatically recording hours-of-service information in compliance with federal ELD rules in the United States and Canada.
“We at Isaac are honored to be partnering with a fleet the stature of Quality Carriers,” said Jacques DeLarochelliere, CEO and co-founder of Isaac Instruments. “We look forward to working closely with Quality Carriers to provide drivers with an improved experience, while ensuring worry-free compliance, safety and efficiency.”
