Everywhere you read now you see Autonomous references; self driving cars, driver-assist, automatic braking, parallel parking, and more. Autonomous is now mainstream, and the terms people use to discuss it can quickly become unclear.

There’s always a reason for the season.

Our annual Zedi Customer Experience Survey has a reason and a season too; every year we pause for a moment and measure how successful our efforts have been, and where we need to improve to ensure our team is focused on the right innovations, and the best possible solutions for our customers so they can become more productive, more profitable and more sustainable.

It’s why detailed training, safety, planning and teamwork are literally life-and-death issues as we help keep oil and gas production flowing - in even the coldest, and hottest areas of North America.
