Drivosity Supports Drive Toward Home Delivery in COVID-19 Climate
Drivosity, a leading telematics provider for last-mile delivery, uses location technology and analytics to increase delivery driver safety and productivity. Drivosity’s customers, some of the largest players in the food delivery industry, have reported record-breaking growth in deliveries in the wake of COVID-19. This is due not only to the global shutdowns of dine-in restaurants, but also the ‘new normal’ where many people are more comfortable dining at home. However, this sudden growth has put a number of drivers new to the world of delivery on the road and left business owners scrambling to manage and scale their operations.
Drivosity has been quick to respond to overwhelming demand for enhanced delivery solutions in a delivery-centric world. Their GPS-based vehicle and driver safety tracking platform benefits customers who see up to 90 percent reductions in accidents and up to 50 percent reductions in Workers Compensation and HNOA auto insurance costs. As the world experiences unprecedented growth in home delivery, the company has been scaling rapidly, expanding its North American and European teams to accommodate the increased demand from both existing and new customers.
“Frontline delivery has become an essential service and Drivosity is doing its part to help keep roads safe as the demand for food delivery has surged,” says Greg Pearson, Vice President of Worldwide Commercial Sales at Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS). “By running entirely on AWS, Drivosity has the reliability and proven operational experience the company needs to scale its business during the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to working with Drivosity as the company continues to innovate new safety features, such as using AWS machine learning services to deliver new and predictive capabilities that can help improve driver safety.”…
