Whether it’s finding new ways to stay fuel efficient or reduce maintenance turnaround times, GP Transco always starts with the driver’s perspective.

Their driver-first approach has helped GP Transco achieve a quantifiable, positive impact on their drivers’ day-to-day while also maintaining an impressive rate of innovation. It has also helped GP Transco maintain one of the lowest driver turnover rates in the industry.
We treat our drivers as the backbone of our company. If it wasn’t for the drivers, we wouldn’t be here. We really focus on making sure they feel heard and respected."

GP Transco’s keys to success
Rewarding drivers for fuel efficient driving behavior
Like any business scaling their operations, GP Transco is always looking for ways to increase efficiency and decrease costs. The difference at GP Transco is that drivers are always part of the conversation. When GP Transco leveraged Samsara fuel data to find ways to reduce fuel costs across their fleet, they created a program that rewards drivers for fuel efficient driving behavior. The program has helped GP Transco save 205,000 gallons of fuel and $350,000 in fuel costs—money that’s used to directly fund the driver bonus program.Learn how

Samsara Fuel & Energy Report
The <a href="https://kb.samsara.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042282731-Fuel-Energy-Efficiency-Report" target="_blank">Fuel & Energy Report</a> provides detailed information about fuel use and energy efficiency across both vehicles and drivers. It can be a helpful tool to pinpoint inefficiencies in different vehicle types and highlight inefficient driving behavior. You can also choose to have these reports emailed to you weekly so you can understand your fleet’s fuel use without leaving your inbox.
Samsara Idling Alerts
Samsara Idling Alerts send you a real-time notification if a driver is idling in excess. You can customize these alerts by indicating which vehicles to set an alert for and how much idle time should pass before an alert is issued.
Personalizing coaching to reduce risky driving behavior
A video-based approach to safety has helped GP Transco provide "aha" moments to drivers who might otherwise be unaware of their unsafe behaviors. By using Samsara AI Dash Cam footage for in-person coaching, drivers get a personalized approach to safety which has helped them improve their driving habits and stay safer on the roads. Last year, GP Transco reduced speeding by 66%, decreased accidents by 30%, and improved their CSA score in the “Unsafe Driving” category in just eight months.Learn more

Creating a frictionless maintenance experience for drivers
Drivers are the first line of defense when it comes to protecting a fleet. That’s why GP Transco places such a high premium on equipment durability and maintenance. To accomplish this, they cycle out vehicles every three years so drivers have access to the newest equipment, use Samsara DVIRs for frictionless communication between drivers and maintenance staff, and have an in-house maintenance department for faster turn-around times. There's even a gym and basketball court for drivers to use while they wait for repairs!Learn how
