FirstFleet takes great pride in our ability to operate an efficient fleet of equipment. We are regularly refreshing equipment in effort to take full advantage of the latest advancements in fuel economy, and we are supported by some of the very best professional drivers and maintenance staff in the business.

Good fuel economy is the result of a joint effort from everyone who has the ability to impact the performance of our equipment. This includes our drivers, our maintenance team and even back office staff who review the performance.

Friday I spoke with a driver our of Wichita Falls, TX. This driver was very helpful in tracking down a slight problem with the way the mobile site was presenting information in some situations, but he was also helpful because he brought to my attention the fact that it would be helpful to be able to view Hours of Service information when you are not in the cab of the truck.

In this conversation it became apparent that the driver wanted a simple interface to quickly view the status of the logs - how many hours remain, how long has a duty status been in progress. These details are known by FirstFleet so it was not a tough task to push this information directly to the website in a user friendly manner.

Most of the conversations that I have with drivers about our web site are good conversations - meaning typically folks are excited about the tools we have built and often even have constructive feedback to make it better.

This conversation typically ends with me promising that we will provide this service in the near future. Today I am giving you a different answer, and I am very excited to share this news with you - today the site is mobile enabled. Give it a test drive - v...

A while back we released a tool designed to allow employees to view pay history including viewing their settlement data by trip. It was recently brought to my attention that in some instances drivers reported that when clicking on the "View Trip Detail" they were taken to a blank white page.
