Sooner or later it comes down to wheels on the road. And at GC Logistics, we’re as proud of our in-house fleet as we are of our record of achievement. Our ADA-accessible and ambulatory vehicles can accommodate groups of almost any size and need. GC Logistics commonly works with engineers from Ford’s bailment pools to design ADA accessible vehicles specifically suited to contract needs.
To supplement our in-house fleet, GC Logistics utilizes the latest in technology and software to successfully manage and schedule any number of trips for our clients.
Fleet Management and Scheduling
GC Logistics supports our expert staff with sophisticated technology to optimize fleet management and scheduling. We rely on our customized software to pair each trip with the appropriate driver and allow schedule and routing updates in real time, as well as voice communication between our dispatchers and drivers. Our management software also allows us to keep accurate encounter data throughout the live day, and affords us the ability to meet even the most detailed reporting requirements.
Every successful trip undertaken by GC Logistics is only as good as our drivers. We meticulously screen our drivers to ensure safety and reliability. They are trained and evaluated according to the most exacting standards, with courtesy and service as their everyday goal.
Though we cater our driver-training programs to each contract we serve, our core curriculum includes:
- Agency Policies & Procedures
- Defensive Driving
- Operation & Maintenance of Lifts and Securements
- Fleet Vehicle Care
- First Aid/Emergency Procedures
- Disability Awareness Training
- Passenger Relations & Sensitivity
- ADA Training
GC Logistics selected the GreenRoad Safety Center to enhance our safety program. The Safety Center is a technology-based solution from GreenRoad Technologies that combines in-vehicle coaching with web analytical reporting. An in-vehicle sensor collects information on up to 120 different driving maneuvers. Using proprietary algorithms, maneuvers are analyzed to give drivers feedback about areas that require improvement, and to build their driver profiles.
Driver safety levels are displayed using a simple color classification system: a green light indicates safe driving, yellow needs attention and red is high risk. Drivers and managers are able to review detailed reports by fleet, driver, department, maneuver type, trip and more to easily and accurately identify high-risk drivers and problem areas. In addition to these safety enhancements, the Safety Center contributes toward our “green” initiatives of reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
GC Logistics maintains contacts throughout the nation to ensure that we can pull together a passenger transportation solution for any client, anywhere, anytime. Our transportation partners are screened for compatibility with GC Logistics’s high standards with regard to safety, cost-efficiency and agility.
