By scoring in the best performance range, Dupré is in the top 20% of all freight companies in its SmartWay® category.

“This is an accomplishment to be proud of, and an indicator of a well-run business,” noted Matt Payne, Team Lead, SmartWay Transport Partnership.

In the next four to five months, Dupré expects to expand its 90 driver crude oil segment by adding 125 jobs to fulfill the needs of current and expected growth. With midstream companies and crude traders aggressively growing their crude business with the company, Dupré is seeking an aggressive growth for drivers and company leadership in the crude area.

“We have maintained a great safety record and through synergies within the crude industry we have been fortunate to grow our business in this sector,” said Jim Barnett, Vice President of Operations for Dupré Logistics. “With the expansion of our crude business, comes the need to add qualified members of our team,” Barnett continues.

The company will kick off a campaign to recruit qualified, safety-minded drivers and leaders on a number of outlets including Sirius satellite radio within the coming weeks. With a long history of serving as a logistics provider in the energy space, the company sees crude oil opportunities as a viable area of not only current but future growth.

Dupré Logistics Utilizing In-truck Printers

Thursday, October 17, 2013

In an effort to utilize in-truck computers while complying with Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements, Dupré Logistics is installing printers into their trucks. For a number of years, Dupré has been utilizing on-board computers for direct client input and communication. The need for paperwork DOT compliance and customer requirements prompted the carrier to explore the option.

“Our initial testing phase showed us that on-board printers would be advantageous for both our clients and the need for a bill of lading as required by the DOT,” says Dupré Logistics I.T. Director Stuart Suffern.

We found that there was a need for not only compact and rugged printers, but technology that is compliant with the on-board computer systems. The printers will be used for creating a bill of lading using a print function from their on-board computer, a delivery receipt for the client personnel at the site as well. This technology integration will eliminate the need for hand-written paperwork that is not updated interactively at the time of delivery or loading.
