Maritime invests in fleet safety and visibility with CameraMatics

UK transport and logistics operator, Maritime Transport Ltd., has partnered with CameraMatics to fit connected smart camera systems across its entire fleet.

Operating an impressive fleet of more than 1,500 trucks and employing over 2,000 drivers, Maritime covers some 120 million miles each year, meaning the team needs a solution they can rely on.

Maritime has opted for a 360 degree camera setup, including in-cab driver facing cameras, plus left-turn alerts and smart sensors.

The drivers appreciate the extra visibility the technology provides and the protection it gives them from fraudulent claims.

Remote download of footage is a major benefit of the platform and saves the fleet team time and hassle.

Paul Heyhoe, fleet director, Maritime Transport Ltd. says: “In Felixstowe alone we have 220 vehicles and retrieving footage previously could be a time-consuming process. Instant, remote access to footage now has been a huge benefit to us.

“In the event of an incident or accident we know immediately what happened and can take appropriate action. The footage is also proving extremely useful for our Driver Administrators who use it in the training classrooms.”

CameraMatics co-founder and director, Simon Murray adds: “We are delighted to welcome Maritime on board. Their vehicles are a common site on Britain’s roads and we’re proud to be protecting drivers and road users with CameraMatics. We look forward to a long and productive partnership.”

The company says that around 1,000 vehicles have been fitted with CameraMatics, with the rest of the installations happening on a daily basis as Maritime’s fleet becomes safer, smarter and more efficient.
