With online retail continuing to flourish there is a growing demand for home delivery and courier services. This fast-paced distribution sector has many challenges that come with operating in congested and highly populated urban areas. Delivery drivers face a wide range of hazards that can result in costly vehicle damage while sharing busy roads with pedestrians and other vulnerable road users. The fleet risks associated with making deliveries on-time, in a safe and efficient manner have never been greater.
In the event of an incident, the driver can trigger a panic alarm, sending an instant notification back to the office or depot from the video telematics solution. At any time, it is also possible to stream live video footage from the vehicle as well as use two-way voice communication with the driver. The video is invaluable in the event of an insurance claim while helping reduce the cost and frequency of future claims.
