National wholesalers and independent food specialists JJ Food Service has deployed camera and recording devices on its delivery vehicles to enhance safety.
The firm has used Sentinel Systems to install five-channel camera systems onto 40 of its 7.5-tonne and 18-tonne vehicles, with plans to roll it out across the fleet of more than 130 vehicles.
The 360-degree cameras are linked to an in-cab monitor and recording DVR unit and give drivers a complete view of the vehicle’s surroundings, including the rear and near-side blind spots.
Sedat Kaan Hendekli, Enfield branch manager at JJ Food Service, commented: “Our new near side scan cameras help drivers to be fully aware of cyclists and pedestrians in the vehicles’ blind spot. Early feedback from our team has been incredibly positive. And the benefits don’t stop there. The new in-cab camera helps to monitor driver behaviour, ensuring that they uphold professional standards at all times.”
“The 360-degree camera system also helps to protect the business against false insurance claims and to pin point the cause of any accidents.”
