Coldcall, a division of Samworth Brothers is the latest operator to adopt in cab cameras in association with vehicle tracking.
Its fleet covers over three million miles annually distributing a range of sandwich products to Tesco petrol stations around the country from its six regional depots on behalf of its sister company Bradgate Bakery.
Coldcall has successfully operated telematics on its vehicles for the past four to five years and decided to upgrade to cameras to keep its insurance premiums under control and protect its drivers while they are on the road.
“Driving is becoming more challenging and we wanted to maximise protection for our vehicles and drivers,” explained Paula Shaw, Coldcall’s head of operations.
“We wanted to be able to support any incident with filmed footage to help manage any insurance claims more efficiently. Tracking driver behaviour and driving styles is also good for us to ensure our drivers are considerate when they are at the wheel of one of our vans and that our vans are working efficiently
“We’ve already had 2-3 minor incidents in the five months since their introduction which provides us with peace of mind our new camera/telematics technology has been a sound investment,” she added.
