Electronic logging devices (ELDs) fundamentally change the ways fleets of all sizes work and remain compliant. To help meet our growing fleet management needs, ARL Transport is proud to collaborate with KeepTruckin.
KeepTruckin—whose robust platform includes ELDs, Smart Dashcam, and an electronic logbook app—builds products and services with drivers and fleet managers top of mind, making them a perfect match for our ARL’s compliance, safety, and business needs.
Our introduction to KeepTruckin came after ARL leaders recognized leading independent business entities (IBEs) already trusted KeepTruckin’s seamless app and ELD solution. After our research, we knew we would be getting a high-quality product from KeepTruckin. What we didn’t anticipate was how cooperative and committed KeepTruckin is to customer success, or how flexible they are with product development. They listened to our needs and implemented our ideas into their feature tracking tools. ARL prides ourselves on staying ahead of the curve with fleet management solutions and using with KeepTruckin’s products and services ensure our drivers have access to intuitive, modern, and reliable fleet technology.
From dispatching to driver coaching, and all the way through automating quarterly IFTA reporting, KeepTruckin’s dashboard plays a crucial role in helping our independent business associates (IBAs) be successful. And when KeepTruckin introduced the Smart Dashcam, we jumped at the opportunity to become one of their first clients to leverage the technology to build our unique safety culture.
As our relationship with KeepTruckin deepens, we look forward to contributing to the development of industry-leading technology and continuing to be a trailblazer in building a modern fleet.

ARL Transport LLC has a rich history steeped in the transport industry, going back to 1978 when the company was founded by flatbed industry veteran, R.J. Faherty. Initially a flatbed steel hauling company, ARL Transport LLC was soon transformed into one the largest intermodal drayage companies in the U.S. and Canada, with more than 42 terminal locations serving domestic rail and ocean ports. Throughout the years, R.J. and his son Ron K. Faherty diligently established a vast network of independently-owned terminal agents that would work in tandem to move loads locally in major cities, regionally, and coast-to-coast. That network, now known as the ARL Network, is comprised of six unique divisions.
Outsourcing is one of the keys to ARL Transport LLC's success, diversity, and terminal longevity in a continually changing industry. Our Independent Terminal Agents embody an entrepreneurial spirit. They provide excellent service and take ownership in every load transported.
Today, Ron K. is President and an Owner of ARL Transport LLC, and his father still maintains an integral role within the company, staying true to his roots. Both father and son believe in providing safe and reliable transportation, and impeccable customer service. Nothing less.

ARL Transport LLC's core values have remained steadfast over the years, implemented by hands-on management and applied by a committed team of associates on a daily basis – on and off the road.
