SmartDrive System Technology Added to J.S. Helwig & Son’s Fleet
In February 2017, James Helwig, Owner, President and CEO of J.S. Helwig & Son, added the SmartDrive video-based safety technology to our company fleet. As a leading freight trucking company serving the majority of the continental United States, ongoing safety and fleet management is critical. SmartDrive Systems is a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency.
James Helwig selected the SmartDrive system based on the program’s ease of use, advanced reporting capabilities and superior customer service and support. With driver protection and safety central to James’ decision to adopt video, the highly successful rollout helped ensure not only driver acceptance, but appreciation for the fleet’s investment.
When asked about the SmartDrive system, James Helwig stated, “At J.S. Helwig & Son, we recognize that our drivers are vital to our success, and their efforts contribute immeasurably to the continued growth of our company.” He continued, “The addition of the SmartDrive system to our robust suite of safety technology is one more way we demonstrate our commitment to the safety of our employees and our dedication to exonerating them when they’re not at fault in a collision.”
Dave Benson, Director of Safety at J.S. Helwig & Son, stated, “Our drivers love the SmartDrive program. In fact, we have drivers coming into the depot for regular preventive maintenance and asking to have the video hardware installed.” He continued, “With the SmartDrive program, our drivers have fewer reasons to stress about what happens on the road. They know we have visibility to what took place in the case of a collision or other incident, and we can quickly and easily exonerate them and get them back behind the wheel.”
