Dupré Logistics, Lafayette, La., was selected for this feature because of its proactive stance to combat driver fatigue. A film production company was recently in Lafayette to capture Dupré's program.
In 2001, Dupré consulted with Circadian Technologies to become more educated on fatigue and then implemented a program to manage its now over 650 truck drivers. This included a program focusing on alertness and safety, biological clock, better sleep, health and eating to name a few. For the past eight years, Dupré's success has been rewarded with multiple state and national safety awards.
