Odyssey Logistics & Technology Subsidiary, Linden Bulk Transportation, Partners with SmartDrive Systems

Logistics & Technology Corporation (Odyssey) today announced
that its subsidiary Linden Bulk Transportation LLC has partnered with
SmartDrive Systems, the trucking industry’s leader in video-based safety
and transportation intelligence, to improve driver skills and positively
impact safety.

The fully-managed SmartDrive® solution provides commercial
trucking fleets with driver performance insights and analysis that help
improve driving skills, lower operating costs and improve safety.

“This represents our continued commitment to safety,” said Michael Salz,
COO, Linden Bulk Transportation. “Video is transforming the way fleets
protect drivers and their businesses, and make the roads safer.
Ultimately, the SmartDrive platform helps us identify specific driving
skills that may require improvement so we can effectively mitigate

“With SmartDrive, we have video proof of what actually happened on the
road, avoiding any discrepancies or inaccuracies. This is a key
advantage in terms of our ability to protect our drivers in cases of
incidents on the road,” added Salz. “This is a training tool that will
help make our drivers and the general public safer. The cameras are only
triggered by events, protecting drivers’ privacy while also capturing
video when it’s needed most.”

“We’re proud to add Linden Bulk Transportation to the growing list of
fleets that recognize the value of video-based safety for risk reduction
and driver exoneration,” said Steve Mitgang, CEO, SmartDrive. “Linden is
a recognized leader in fleet safety, and we’re confident other tank
truck fleets will take notice of the company’s decision to embrace the
benefits of advanced transportation intelligence to optimize operations.”
