Modernization efforts are improving customer service and driver safety

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Lafayette, LA, October 25th, 2016 - Real-time tracking has become an integral part of our personal life: people can track their rideshare, food, and home deliveries in real-time, but many in the transportation industry have never been able to do the same with their truckload shipments. This lack of supply chain visibility causes thousands of delays, missed appointments, and phone calls to customers and carriers - which in turn cause driver safety hazards - every day, as well as adding to overall costs.

Today, Dupré Logistics announced its modernization initiative that is increasing supply chain visibility with FourKites’ real-time tracking platform. Dupré Logistics, a Top 100 Company and leader in safety, has been using FourKites real-time tracking platform for 3 months and is already reaping significant benefits.

With a large number of long term customer relationships - most have been with Dupré for several years - improving service for internal and external customers throughout the supply chain has always been a priority. Dupré’s Vice President of Stragetic Capacity Services, Mike Weindel, discussed these game-changing customer service enhancements:


“We can share FourKites’ location data and ETA with both our shipping and receiving customers, so while we’re preventing calls and emails to our customer service team, our account team can actually use it as a sales tool for prospective customers.

Everyone here has accurate tracking information and digital logs, so there’s no calling the drivers and distracting them with ETA requests, and we can use FourKites delay notifications to quickly correct and minimize exceptions.
We’re also able to build better carrier relationships by getting billed, settled, and paying them faster than before, without the extra cost of third-party factoring.” Mike continued, “Improving these relationships is key because when carrier lanes are tight, more shippers and drivers are choosing Dupré over our competitors.”

“In researching how supply chain visibility could streamline logistics operations, we learned that FourKites could aggregate the tracking data from all of our trucks and immediately wanted to learn more.” Dupré CIO Bob Verret explained, “While there were other platforms we explored, we chose FourKites because they are at the cutting edge of technology and offer a far superior value proposition.”

Dave Walker, FourKites Chief Revenue Officer, commented on the thriving partnership, “Dupré very quickly became a FourKites’ success story: we quickly onboarded all of their trucks with ELD devices and their dashboard map was active with live loads, each with its own robust profile of shareable and reportable information. We’re looking forward to enhancing their capabilities in the future to add even more value to their supply chain.”

Dupre Logistics Give to Flood Relief

Thursday, October 20, 2016

 

(LAFAYETTE, LA)- In the spirit of providing an ‘Ideal Place to Work’, the Lafayette-based Dupré Logistics team of employees and their families joined to support 36 team members in need following the historic flooding throughout Louisiana in August of 2016. Individual team members donated to the Dupré Employee Flood Recovery Fund to help those impacted and the company matched every dollar put in the fund. The total raised has been distributed evenly between the team members affected.

Dupré CEO Reggie Dupré said, “With so many team members whose houses, cars, and personal possessions have been partially or totally lost, it was heartwarming to see so many not hesitating to donate their own time and money to help team members recover.” He continued, “These team members are showing what we're made of here at Dupré, great people. I'm proud to be part of this caring, generous, serving team and I thank our team for everything they do to make themselves, our team members, and our company successful.”

The 36 team members with homes throughout the Lafayette and Baton Rouge areas and the surrounding parishes saw between six inches to eight feet of water. This historic 1,000-year flooding came without warning to the state that is in the beginning of what will be a long-term recovery.

“I want to thank the entire Dupré family for their generosity and thoughtfulness and hope to someday be able to help a team member in this way,” said Curtis White, a Dupré Professional Driver, who lives in Denham Springs and saw eight feet of water in their home.

“My coworkers and I wanted to help because Dupré is family; that is what you do for family. Knowing that there is that support at work from not only the people you work with, but the company you work for means a lot,” said Dolores Benoit, Dedicated Group Administrative Assistant, who donated to the fund despite not being affected by the flooding.

Dupré Logistics, LLC is a privately held provider of transportation and logistics services that include energy transportation, dedicated contract carriage, logistics, and freight brokerage. Dupré is headquartered in Lafayette, LA, with operations throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Reggie Dupré to Join Panel on Intermodal Infrastructure in the Future

This winter, the world's largest and most well respected Petrochemical Supply Chain & Export Logistics event will take place in Houston, Texas. More than 500 senior level executives representing North America’s multi-billion-dollar petrochemical export market, will come together to network and share strategies on streamlining the supply chain, to drive efficiency and reliability for the North American Petrochemical Supply Chain Industry. Visit the conference website here.

The conference will feature world class speakers from highly respected companies including BASF, The Dow Chemical Company, COSCO, Maersk Line, and LyondellBasell, and will cover topics such as port congestion and increasing capacity across transportation modes (rail, trucking, marine),across both Plastic Resin and Bulk Liquid Petrochemical sectors. Dupré CEO Reggie Dupré will join a panel concerning port congestion.

Organisers promise this year's conference will be bigger and better than any before, featuring a brand new multi-track agenda which allows delegates to join focused sessions based on their focus in either Plastic Resins or Bulk Liquid. Additionally, on opening night, delegates will be treated to a networking drinks reception at the Omni Galleria, which will gather the movers and shakers of North America’s petrochemical supply chain market for a party to remember.

Although in its early years, this firmly established conference is well attended by Producers, Transportation Companies (rail, 3PLs, shipping, trucking), Ports and vendors alike, and organisations who attended in previous years have spoken very highly of the format, speakers and topics covered, with Brent Railey, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company saying “The conference is a great opportunity to hear from and meet the key players in the resin export sector: Producers, Warehousing, Packagers, and Trucking companies.”

Building on the success of previous years, the event's organisers aim to focus on topics and issues that are critical to this constantly-changing industry, and to bring together the “most innovative and forward thinking petrochemical producers & transportation companies” who can contribute to new thinking on driving efficiency, reliability and transparency across the petrochemical supply chain.

Mel Pinks, Commercial Director at Odfjell promises the conference will be a “A valuable conference for all functions of the US Gulf reliant petrochemical industry, detailing forward capacity projections and the associated constraints.”
