Passionate about ensuring LRS’ operational expertise is above industry standards, Larsen implemented a truck automation initiative. Since 2015, 90% of LRS’ residential fleet has been automated. Automating LRS’ residential fleet ensures that LRS drivers remain safe and healthy, reducing overall physical labor during routes. Knowing that LRS drivers are part of the life-force of the company, Larsen set up new methods to ease driver responsibility. One initiative included providing driver tablets for all commercial routes, which decreased program paper usage by 50%.
