Zero trust: Chaos creates cybercriminal opportunities

Joe Russo, VP of IT and Security at ISAAC Instruments, said more companies are shifting toward “zero-trust.” It’s a new security approach that assumes a breach has already happened—so it increases the difficulty for an attacker to move through a company’s network.

Brian Sillett, compliance and safety manager at Equipment Express, which uses ISAAC Instruments telematics, said during a webinar that smart compliance tools are one of the many benefits to using smart compliance technology to create a more efficient fleet.

Video: How Automated Workflow Impacts Truck Equipment Operations

Jacques DeLarochelliere is CEO, chairman, and co-founder of ISAAC Instruments, an ELD provider that holds a lion’s share of the market in Canada and is making in-roads in the U.S. Market. He stopped by the Fleet Equipment studio to talk about the impact that automation within truck data and telematics can make.

How to Identify, and Improve, the High-Risk Driver

Sutco Transportation Specialists has also incorporated in-cab video into its safety performance tracking program. It relies on the ISAAC Instruments platform including an in-cab camera and Speed Gauge, which compares the truck’s actual speed to the legal speed limit where it’s traveling.

Asking Hard Questions Vital to ELD Selection

That’s one thing I really enjoyed seeing with Veltri was that they weren’t afraid to ask the hard questions because they’ve felt the pain in the past and they’ve learned from it and they know what they want for their future solution,” said ISAAC Instruments technical solutions specialist Trent Gilles.

Quality Carriers Switches ELDs for Better Driver Experience

Quality Carriers is moving to a different electronic logging device system that it said improves the driver experience. One of North America’s leading liquid chemical haulers, Quality will install ISAAC Instruments’ driver-centric fleet management solution across Quality’s entire fleet.

Lesson learned: U.S. Container Depot, Liquid Cargo tighten IT security

“Over the last year, technology sophistication, the proliferation of hacking techniques, and the expansion of hacking motivations due in part to COVID-19 and the enablement of the remote workforce have resulted in organizations having to review their security posture,” said Joe Russo, IT director for ISAAC Instruments.

Canada takes more systematic approach to ELD certification

ISAAC Instruments, one of the largest ELD providers in Canada, outfits fleets that are constantly crossing the border, Jacques DeLarochelliere, company CEO and co-founder, told Fleet Owner. “If you look at our big data, at any moment, you’ll see that half the trucks on our system are in the U.S.,” he said. “In terms of operations for trucking fleets, there’s no such thing as a border in trucking—except for the paperwork when you go across.”

ELDs Enhance Productivity, Driver Satisfaction

It’s a small feature, but ISAAC Instruments’ fleet management solution can create temporary geofences based on address details to automatically alert dispatch and the customer when the truck breaks into fenced location upon arrival, or when it breaks out of the fence when leaving the customer. Alerts are sent to designated parties and it’s all done with messages.

Tech Vendors Prepare for Canada’s Move to E-Logs

A Canadian feet may think if a device is certified in the U.S., it is certified in Canada, but it isn’t. If you’re operating in Canada, as long as you’re a federally registered carrier, you need that certification,” said Melanie Simard, compliance and safety specialist at ELD supplier ISAAC Instruments.

Dash cam crime solvers

Truck drivers and fleets began equipping their vehicles with dash cams initially to protect themselves. In some cases, the footage captured by these cameras is assisting law enforcement in conducting accident investigations the truck driver wasn’t even involved in. In one case involving a Kriska Transportation Group driver, the safety department contacted ISAAC Instruments to request footage of the incident.

How real-time coaching can boost fleet efficiency and safety

Since Tucker Freight Lines added real-time in-cab coaching from ISAAC Instruments to its fleet of dry vans and flatbeds two years ago, the carrier has increased its fleetwide mpg by one mile, saving drivers about $200 per week in fuel—around $10,000 per year. Along with better fuel efficiency, the fleet has become safer.

ISAAC founder talks AI, data privacy, and more

Jacques DeLarochelliere, the president of ISAAC Instruments – a business built on generating data – knows telematics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) will play an important role in the future of trucking.

Ever-expanding ISAAC Instruments opens new HQ

As fleets increasingly invest in new technologies, the truck market itself continues to grow, he explains. And their technologies are not limited to electronic logging devices, either. “Most of the fleets we are working with have been using some form of electronic logbook for quite awhile,” DeLarochelliere says. “Some of our customers have been doing it for 30 years.”
