SATELLITE TRACKING & ELD
Each truck is equipped with satellite tracking and Electronic Logging Device (ELD) technologies. Satellite-based systems allow us to fully manage, monitor, and track our trucks to improve the performance and efficiency of our fleet.
These innovative technologies also allow the home office to communicate with the fleet, in case issues may arise. This gives our drivers and customers peace of mind.
Due to our commitment to the highest standards of safety, our fleet has been 100% compliant with new federal mandates for electronic logging.
Watsontown Trucking Company embraces a Culture of Safety in all aspects of our business, from work-injury-prevention training to the most progressive, ongoing driver training in the industry.
From their first days at WTC, each of our drivers receives training in Defensive Driving, Hours of Service, and Compliance and Cargo Handling Securement. Drivers who meet our stringent safety criteria receive a quarterly safety bonus of up to $300 per quarter.
In addition, we have employed the most modern technology available in terms of in-cab driver safety, including electronic logging, for improved HOS compliance; collision-avoidance systems; rollover-protection systems; lane-departure warning systems; ABS braking; air-disc brakes; GPS tracking technology; and DriveCam, video-surveillance cameras. All of our tractors have a governed road speed of 65 mph. Watsontown Trucking is very proud of our workforce of safe and compliant drivers.
