Welcome to JoyRide Logistics’ inaugural safety blog for June 2023. The safety squad – Joyce, Elvir, Don, Mo, Alma, Selma, Anela & Aida – is dedicated to securing your journey. Despite June’s challenges, the team effectively addressed our CSA scores, driver speeding, and overall improvement strategies for JoyRide.
Key Safety Measures
May 31 saw the stringent rule of immediate termination on receiving a speeding ticket. We’re proud to announce a ticket-free June and encourage the same vigilance in July.
We monitor speeding through our Samsara Reports and offer courtesy calls to speeding drivers. Remember, adhere to speed limits, respect traffic signals, exercise caution on turns, and strictly avoid U-turns.
Courtesy calls will be given to any driver speeding from our Samsara Reports we receive.
Speeding: Please follow the posted speed limit signs in all States.
Red Lights: Please do not run yellow or red lights.
Right Turns: STOP !! then proceed, no rolling stops.
Left turns: Please exercise extreme caution and not turn in front of cars without proper distances.
Company Policy – NO U TURNS!!!
Remember, only hands-free or Bluetooth for cell phone usage while driving.
Master the art of safe lifting techniques, proper entries/exits from your truck, and ensure safety while opening trailer doors to prevent injuries.
Pre-Trip and Post-Trip Inspections
Follow correct procedures for pre and post-trip inspections and logging trailer information on your ELD. Our safety team is here to assist when needed.
Maintain safe distances and manage speed responsibly. Please adhere to DOT regulations and JoyRide’s policy prohibiting alcohol on the truck.
Follow all rules on Amazon facilities, especially speed zones.

DOT Inspection Guidelines
During a DOT inspection, remember to unbuckle your seatbelt only when instructed. Seatbelt violations can attract warnings or citations, negatively impacting your CDL and Company scores.
