When you're the largest limousine operator in St. Louis, you can't cut corners on safety and efficiency.
- Improved CSA score
- Stellar DOT audits
- Drivers spend 50% less time filling out logs
That’s why Best Transportation of St. Louis, who was named St. Louis Business Journal’s Fastest Growing Privately Held Company for three straight years, chose KeepTruckin for their end-to-end safety needs.
SAFETY SCORES ARE CRITICAL
In early 2014, Best Transportation switched from a fleet of chauffeurs using paper logs to one that exclusively uses KeepTruckin. “Because we handle the transportation needs for some high-profile companies, maintaining a strong safety record is always a top priority,” says Angel Blake, quality assurance and compliance assistant and the one at Best who discovered the KeepTruckin app. “KeepTruckin helps us do that by giving us access to our chauffeurs’ up-to-the-minute logs-all from our desktop.”
AUTOMATIC LOG AUDITING
Before adopting KeepTruckin, Blake had to badger her chauffeurs about turning in their paper logs on time. Informing a chauffeur of an hours of service violation would take weeks after the violation took place because logs had to be collected and scanned manually.

AN EASY-TO-USE APP
Blake isn’t the only one at Best Transportation that finds KeepTruckin helpful – her chauffeurs have grown to love the KeepTruckin app.
With the app’s simple interface, automatic violation detection, and bundled inspection reports, chauffeurs are able to cut in half the time they spend filling out logs. That means more time on the road making money. The Best Transportaion’s scheduler also accesses the web dashboard to view chauffeurs’ available hours, so that they can determine which chauffeurs can be assigned jobs while still staying compliant.
A STELLAR DOT AUDIT
With KeepTruckin, Best Transportation has maintained their exceptional local reputation that has earned them countless awards and the business of several national and global corporations headquartered in St. Louis. It allows their chauffeurs to spend more time on the road and frees up the compliance staff to work on other projects, all while reducing the company’s overhead.
“We passed our last DOT audit with flying colors. They didn’t say anything about our logs – and trust me, that’s a good thing! The decision to use KeepTruckin in our operations has helped us live up to the reputation we’ve spent three generations building. I just can’t say enough good things about it.”
