Company rolls out truck driver check-in kiosks to cut down on wait times at warehouses


A California-based company debuted new truck driver check-in kiosks to help reduce wait times at shipper and receiver facilities.

On June 21, Los Angeles-based Olea Kiosks launched the Tampa Driver Check-In Kiosk to help companies better manage truck driver arrival and departures.

    The Tampa Driver Check-In Kiosk scans identification documents like driver’s licenses and cargo manifests to capture and store data securely in real-time, then provides a printed receipt which includes time stamps and route confirmation information.

    The kiosk is designed for in-lane deployment, meaning that the driver doesn’t have to exit the cab to use it.

    Olea Kiosks plans to have the first-ever customer deployment of the driver check-in kiosk up and running by the end of June 2024.

    “Traditionally, driver check-ins involve time-consuming manual entries, resulting in long lines and increased wait times. These inefficiencies lead to operational delays, increased costs, and driver dissatisfaction. The Tampa Driver Check-In Kiosk offers a smarter, faster, and more accurate solution, significantly reducing check-in times and administrative overhead,” the company said in a news release.

    “After discussions with several logistics organizations and learning that it’s not uncommon for entire truckloads to go missing, this robust, yet simple design provides tremendous value for this market,” explained Frank Olea, CEO. “In addition, the ability to deploy in-lane not only helps speed up the check-in process even further but it also helps track loads and optimize yard space while improving driver safety.”
