GP Transco CEO
Working From Home While Staying Efficient
GP Transco’s highest priority is to protect the safety of our employees, customers, and community while ensuring uninterrupted supply chains. In response to CDC’s recommendations to limit the spread of COVID-19, GP Transco staff has been working remotely for nearly a week.
I would like to assure you that by utilizing the most modern IT solutions, GP Transco has adapted to this situation without sacrificing efficiency, functionality and performance. In fact, it is likely that none of you noticed any changes in the service you have received from GP Transco this week despite our staff working remotely.
Here are the tools that allow us to operate remotely with 350 tractors/500 trailers and 120 people to support our drivers:
OpenRoad TMS – our in-house developed, cloud-based Transportation Management System that allows our team to oversee the entire fleet with up-to-the-second accuracy of location, load status, etc. These cloud-based technologies allow us to not only be more efficient in the office, but empower our staff to take their work with them wherever they go as-needed without sacrificing on quality.
The newest tracking and telemetry systems – services such as Samsara provide us with unique situational awareness and bring real-time visibility, analytics and AI to operations.
The Newest communication and collaboration platform – allows us to effectively organize workplace chat, video meetings and file storage. All of our staff is equipped with webcams for high-quality communication.
The transportation industry is responsible for supply chain of food, providing medicine and other essential commodities to the American people. Our staff and drivers have a mission-critical attitude during this challenging time.
