Looks like some of you have been getting emails from us with no real content in the body. This is certainly not by design, but the good news is we believe this to now be resolved.  Please accept our apologies for this and any confusion we caused.

Yesterday we got some feedback from Russell - a 14 yr. driver out of Cleveland, TN - regarding his eagerness to get his dispatch via email and a problem he found while testing it out. Through conversation with him we were able to determine that the messages were delivered to his email account but they were sitting in his spam box. This is course is not a good thing to have happen, but we are happy to say we think the cause for this behavior has been located and corrected. However, we wanted to share this with you in case you too are not getting the emails as you would expe...

The DOT’s new safety program will be going nation wide in December of this year! The Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010, or CSA 2010, will maintain a drivers record for 3 years. As a driver you can manage this record by staying out of accidents and by getting clean DOT inspections. Remember, warnings count the same as citations under the new program. Manage your record – it will stay with you for 3 years!

Have you ever wished you had access to your dispatch sooner or wished you could get the information when you are away from your truck? A little while ago we released a tool on our website that is designed to give you this information here at www.firstfleetinc.com. This service has been well received because it provides enhanced information such as phone numbers, directions on file, etc - but - it requires that you be near a computer and it isn't designed to push this information to you as soon as possible. To address this item we are happy to announce an optional service that is des...

In a recent post we demonstrated an exciting new feature we have for our drivers to obtain load information using web based tools. The response to this tool has been positive to far and we are excited to see what else we can offer to make interactions with our customers and employees more efficient. One request we received from Kevin - our Cleveland, TN Service Manager - was to include functionality in this trip sheet that gave feedback to the driver if a preventative maintenance schedule was due at the time of dispatch.  We love the idea and have implemented his request effecti...

One of the most often requested features we have is for a driver to be able to obtain his/her load assignment information without having to be near the truck or by calling dispatch. We have heard this concern and are happy to announce a new tool to make this interaction much easier for all FirstFleet, Inc. drivers. Starting today we have a new tool called the Driver Load Board (myPortal -> Employee Resources) which we hope will address this problem in an efficient manner. Here is how this tool will work...  Navigate to www.firstfleetinc.com Click the "Login" link (cli...

In this generation of new media we are excited to engage our partners and employees alike using new forms of communication where it is appropriate.  This tutorial is an example of one such instance where we desire to reach out to our driver population with training material that is not of a sensitive nature and should be consumable using any device connected to the internet. This tutorial is one of many we anticipate to follow where we desire to train a subset of drivers on how to use their in cab device to accomplish a specific task. In particular we have a business partner that has dem...

For Operational employees that have been around FirstFleet for a while there is a resource we call the "portal" that exists inside our company. This web based resource has loads of reports and custom applications that many users lean on every day to make decisions and/or simply do their job.  The portal has served our company well for almost ten years and still is a very active part of the day to day function of the company, but alas - everything must come to an end at some point. While I cannot provide a hard date this resource will go away I can say that we are...

As a dedicated transportation provider we are committed to providing the highest level of customer service to our business partners.  One way we accomplish this task is by deploying tools that augment their ability to interact with our organization in an efficient manner. In a recent email blast we asked our partners to respond with ways they were presently interacting with us that needed an "efficiency review" - and this tool is a result of one such interaction. A specific business partner requested a way to query our back office systems for payment status on a given bill of lading or r...
