One20’s driver-centric approach improving life on the road

LIfe on the road can be difficult for truck drivers. Time away from family, traffic congestion and delays, and expensive, unhealthy food are just a few of the issues drivers face on a daily basis. 

Focus is on creating products and solutions designed with the driver in mind

With driver wages and benefits now accounting for 31% of operational costs per mile for carriers, according to research from the American Transportation Research Institute, trucking fleets are continuing to increase their focus on improving drivers’ lives, both on the road and off.

Pay increases, benefit packages and more engagement are among the efforts many fleets have undertaken, with a mixed bag of success so far. Unlike many companies that focus their development efforts on helping fleets improve those efforts, there is one company that is focused on developing products and solutions to help the drivers.

One20, founded by software expert Christian Schenk and launched early in 2016, has grown quickly from a platform designed to give drivers a place to vent to a company that is crafting tools to help drivers better manage their lives – from improved navigation on the road, to better health off it.
