Dupré Logistics, LLC, headquartered in Lafayette, La., is honoring its 2012 Fleet Elite drivers Jan. 19 at a special gala event. Fleet Elite status is awarded to GreenRoad drivers who maintain a GreenRoad Safety Score of 5 or less for the full 2012 calendar year, and log more than 500 GreenRoad driving hours. 

“We are extremely proud of our Fleet Elite drivers,” said Al Lacombe, director of safety and training at Dupré. “They’ve worked hard all year to achieve this exemplary status, and their safe driving has saved the company in insurance premiums, fuel costs, and vehicle wear-and-tear. We extend our congratulations and thanks to each and every one of these fine drivers.”

Announced in February 2012, GreenRoad Fleet Elite is designed to recognize the best fleet drivers on the road, and provide internal motivation and recognition for best driver performance. In 2012, less than 5 percent of the global GreenRoad driver base attained Fleet Elite status. More than 50 percent of the drivers were from U.S.-based companies, according to GreenRoad.

GreenRoad said the full list of Fleet Elite recipients will be announced in the coming weeks. Each Fleet Elite driver will receive a certificate and lapel pin to mark their achievement.

GreenRoad’s Fleet Elite program is being extended into 2013, according to the company. Fleet Elite qualification will remain the same, drivers must maintain a Safety Score of 5 or less for the complete year, with a minimum of 500 GreenRoad hours logged.
