Dean Croke, Principal Analyst at DAT, Visits the Transfix Take Podcast

We had the honor of sitting with Dean Croke, Principal Analyst for DAT Freight and Analytics. Dean has deep roots in trucking spanning over 50 years, with his family owning and operating a trucking business in Australia, being a truck driver in the Outback running about 2 million miles, and in the late 90’s, he shifted gears to focus on trucking analytics related to driver fatigue, safety, sleep schedules, and hours of service. 

In this interview, we explore:

  • Why the current Hours of Service (HOS) is not a one-size-fits-all-solution
  • What drivers can do to achieve a better sleep cycle
  • The importance of anchor sleep
  • How starting a driver’s schedule at the same time everyday can be the difference between life and death
