WESTMINSTER, Colo., Aug. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/. — Trimble announced that Dart Transit Company, based in Eagan, Minn, has selected Trimble’s Instinct driver experience and Video Intelligence fleet management solutions. Dart will be implementing the Trimble technologies across its fleet of more than 1,000 trucks. This will create a more connected driver and fleet management experience, while improving the safety, compliance, and efficiency of its fleet.
Founded in 1934, Dart is one of America’s largest and most successful truckload dry van carriers. Moreover, it provides shippers with a wide variety of transportation-related services through the Dart Network of companies. Dart’s core values include safety and engagement. Both of these values convey Dart’s commitment to adopting the latest in transportation technology to improve outcomes for their drivers.
“At Dart, we believe the future of fleet management is anchored in a connected experience between the back office and our drivers,” said John Stomps, CEO of Dart Transit. “Trimble’s Instinct and Video Intelligence solutions deliver just that. Moreover, they provide a consistent and streamlined ecosystem that will empower our continuous pursuit of safety and innovation.”
Additionally, Instinct is Trimble’s next-generation in-cab experience, improving productivity and performance through effective driver workflows and an innovative mobile ecosystem. Its integrated suite of applications enhances the driver, dispatch, and telematics experience for more control and customization.
According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, installing video-based onboard safety monitoring systems on all large trucks could potentially prevent an estimated 63,000 crashes, 17,700 injuries and 290 deaths each year. Trimble Video Intelligence is an award-winning safety solution that addresses those concerns and provides fleets with a neutral eyewitness perspective in and around their vehicles. Furthermore, Trimble Video Intelligence utilizes high-definition cameras to provide fleets with comprehensive coverage. The system is designed to trigger video recording based on company settings, allowing for driver coaching and capturing accident footage. Moreover, with forward, side, and rear-facing cameras, Trimble Video Intelligence helps fleets enhance safety and protect their interests.
“Dart’s decision to partner with Trimble demonstrates a commitment to realize a shared goal. The goal is to raise the bar for fleet protection and driving efficiencies through the use of technology. This includes both the back office and in-cab operations,” said Paul Cardosi, sector vice president of Global Mobility for Trimble. “Together, Instinct and Video Intelligence will provide Dart with an intuitive experience, seamlessly connecting drivers, fleet managers and safety personnel.”
