There are few things more important in the transportation industry than proper truck maintenance and safety programs. To ensure truck driver safety (and efficiency), carriers need to prioritize the continued maintenance of their truck equipment.
Here at Lily Transportation, safety is a top priority. Not only do we offer comprehensive safety programs, but we also equip our drivers with meticulously maintained truck equipment, so they always have the best tools at their disposal.
Our commitment to trucking safety doesn’t stop there. Here are just a few of the other ways Lily Transportation prioritizes truck maintenance and truck safety:
A “Safety First” Mentality
When it comes to hiring drivers, acquiring equipment, or educating staff, Lily Transportation operates off of a “safety first” mentality. For example, when we’re looking for a new driver to welcome into the Lily Family, we abide by “safe hiring” principles such as:
- Driver physicals and drug and alcohol testing (as required by the D.O.T.)
- A required two-years of verifiable industry experience
- Passing a driver road test before hiring
We also equip our drivers and their trucks with wireless, real-time vehicle locators, and electronic on-board records. By bridging the distance between drivers and dispatch, we always know how our drivers are doing, and our drivers always know help is only a call away.
Lily is also committed to the continued health and wellness of its drivers. Our drivers are the beating heart of our company. This is why we’re devoted to offering our drivers a wealth of benefits—such as safety bonuses, insurance, matching 401k, 24-hour dispatch, and more.
The Highest Quality Truck Fleet
Lily’s fleet of vehicles is made up of either brand new or late model trucks—you won’t find any outdated truck driving equipment here. Truck maintenance is of the utmost importance, which is why each of our truck models is continuously maintained for optimal levels of safety, efficiency, and driver comfort. Some of the models we use include:
- Volvo VNL
- Kenworth T680
- Peterbilt Trucks
- Freightliner Trucks
We also ensure our entire truck fleet is equipped with the tools and features it needs to guarantee the safety of our drivers (and the drivers they share the road with).
For example, our vehicles are equipped with truck safety aids like:
- 65mph limit for local and regional limits
- Speed gauge reports
- Mobil Eye lane departure and forward warning systems (so drivers can be better aware of their surroundings)
- Regular reports from the Corporate Safety Department are sent directly to Lily’s President and CEO
- Safety bonuses and incentives to proactively manage Lily’s Driver Safety Program
