In the fast-paced world of trucking and logistics, safety is our top priority. Ensuring the well-being of our drivers and the motoring public is not only a legal obligation, but an ethical responsibility that we take seriously at Jones Logistics (JoLo). However, our dedication to safety also includes the protection of our customers and their freight, which is why we are constantly monitoring our fleet and driver's behaviors in an effort to address any safety concerns. It may seem excessive to some trucking companies, but as far as we're concerned, it is the only way to do business. From loading to delivery, JoLo will monitor your logistics flows, and strive to predict and prevent possible hazards and accidents. The fact that we take safety seriously is proven by our enviable safety rating, and because we take extra measures, you can know that you don't have to worry about:

  • Driver Training and Education: Our drivers undergo bi-monthly training that covers defensive driving techniques, proper handling of hazardous materials (if applicable), adherence to traffic laws, and emergency response procedures. By investing in continued education, we ensure our drivers are prepared to handle any challenges that may arise on the road while hauling your freight. 
  • Maintenance and Inspection Standards: We operate a young fleet of trucks and trailers with a maintenance cost below the national average. We also adhere to regular maintenance schedules and routine inspections to ensure reliability and safe, DOT compliant equipment. Any issues identified are promptly addressed to prevent potential accidents or breakdowns that might keep your freight from arriving on time. This approach minimizes the risk of mechanical failure and promotes safe driving conditions. 
  • Establishing a Safety Culture: Promoting a safety culture is not a one-time effort. It requires ongoing commitment and engagement from every level of our organization. We incentivize safe driving practices and recognize outstanding safety performance through our driver of the quarter program. By valuing and appreciating the dedication to safety exhibited by our drivers, JoLo reinforces the importance of responsible behavior on the road. 
  • Collaboration and Compliance: We actively collaborate with regulatory agencies, industry associations, and other stakeholders to stay informed about evolving safety standards and best practices. By staying compliant with all applicable laws and regulations, we are able to demonstrate our commitment to upholding the highest safety standards. We conduct regular internal audits and performance assessments to ensure full compliance and identify areas for improvement. 
  • We invest in Technology: We utilize in-cab camera technology, collision avoidance, blind spot warning, lane departure, and telematics data to effectively coach and mentor our drivers’ behavior and habits to help ensure we are putting the best people behind the wheel.
Safety will always be paramount to JoLo, and our goal is to minimize exposure and risk to ease your mind. In fact, at JoLo, we believe that this should be the least of your concerns.

Because we invest so much into the safety of our drivers, your freight, and other people on the road, you can spend less time worrying over what’s en route and more time focusing on what's on the road ahead for your business.                                                                          Click Here to Contact Us
