ELogs and the Driver
Len Dunman – Safety Director, Mercer Transportation – Louisville, KY
Mercer’s motto is we move one more load safely. It’s in our culture. It’s in everything we do. From the top down, its every decision we make and the employees coming up are engrained in that. We don’t compromise safety. We don’t make excuses for safety. It’s simply what we do.
With so many people in our peer group are already with ELDs we have to go in that direction so it will reflect the company that we are. We see competitors do it and it’s the right thing to do. It takes the stress off our drivers…The drivers that are on it now can get back and do what they enjoy, and that is hauling freight, not having to worry about how many hours they got.
