National Retail Systems Inc. (NRS), a provider of logistics services to U.S. retailers, pharmaceutical companies and consumer goods manufacturers, has launched a safety program to install the GreenRoad 360 driving decision support service in trucks throughout the United States. The program will start in the Northeast U.S. and expand across the country next year.
GreenRoad's patented technology measures G-forces impacting NRS trucks as they are driven on the road. It uses sensor-based technology to measure and analyze, in real-time, over 120 maneuvers in five categories: speed handling, cornering, lane handling, braking, and acceleration. The system also captures compound maneuvers, which combine multiple maneuver types and represent the greatest risk and cost to a fleet. The service also provides reports and analysis to drivers and fleet managers through a secure website to evaluate overall driving risk and skills.
