Neenah, WI - U.S. Xpress, the nation’s second largest privately owned truckload carrier, has chosen J. J. Keller’s Driver DataSense® Service to help consolidate driver data and manage Hours of Service compliance for all drivers, including those using ELogs, paper logs and time sheets.

“There is so much data that comes from our onboard technology that we were struggling with how to take those data points and turn them into action,” said Amy Lokken, Vice President of Safety, Security & Driver Training at U.S. Xpress. “But with J. J. Keller’s Driver DataSense® Service, we can really leverage that data to make compliance improvements and coach drivers to prevent violations.”

The need for expert guidance was echoed by J. J. Keller’s Vice President of Managed Services, Shaun Gunderson. “Onboard technology alone won’t make your drivers compliant. You still need someone to translate your raw data into usable information. The Driver DataSense® Service does that for you.”

J. J. Keller’s service uses proprietary technology to aggregate the continuous stream of data from a fleet’s onboard technology, paper logs, and time sheets. A team of J. J. Keller® Client Service Specialists conducts analysis of that data to identify compliance and performance issues, and then delivers the guidance necessary to help fleets correct those issues.

“In the future, we see endless opportunities where Driver DataSense is going to allow us to be even more proactive as additional data points are brought in,” said Lokken. “The DataSense team works with us to drive improvement and identify areas where we can take the next leap to not only be good, but to be great.”

In addition to receiving ongoing driver compliance guidance, J. J. Keller’s Driver DataSense clients also receive daily alerts of compliance issues, reports on driver performance trends, assistance in the event of a DOT audit, and access to a secure online portal that provides a holistic view of all driver data.

“When you take the Driver DataSense® Service online portal and couple it with the greatest customer service in the industry, you truly have a game changer,” Lokken added.
