Bibby Distribution in £1m camera action27 November 2018

Bibby Distribution has invested more than £1 million installing in-cab cameras throughout its fleet in a bid to boost driver safety and improve performance.

Each of its 650 tractor units and rigid trucks now has two cameras inside, one facing the driver and another monitoring the road ahead.

The two cameras will be integrated with Bibby’s telematics package from Microlise, which the company uses to identify and tackle driver behaviours such as harsh acceleration and braking. The information is then used to create training programmes.

The new footage will also be used for training and is part of Bibby’s Road to Zero strategy, which aims to eliminate harm, waste and environmental impact from its operations.

Adam Purshall, head of fleet and procurement at Bibby Distribution, says: “We’ve invested in this new technology because it’s the right thing to do – the safety of our drivers and the goods we transport for customers is absolutely critical.

“It also allows us to set our safety benchmark even higher. The more information we have at our fingertips means we can work even more closely with our drivers to help them continually perform at the highest possible level.”
