Extensive road transportation is an essential part of the supply chain for most major corporations. With more than one-quarter of the 1.25 million deaths on the road each year attributable to work-related driving, leading corporations are now taking the significant step of managing all off-site transportation safety risks throughout their supply chains and across their own operations.
