Boughey Distribution has deployed Verilocation’s MDVR multi-camera system in 46 of its vehicles.
The distribution companies aim to have the entire Boughey fleet of 103 vehicles outfitted by the end of this year.
A large number of third party insurance claims, that were difficult to dispute without physical evidence, prompted the installation.
Boughey originally contracted Verilocation at the end of 2016 to install the camera solution in the first half of its fleet.
Boughey’s transport manager Steve Newton said: “We chose to contract Verilocation because they offered an excellent product at a very good price point.
"The quality of the footage provided was excellent, and the after-sales service delivery and support has been outstanding.
“Not only has the general level of safety for our drivers improved, we’ve also been able to save on costs because of reduced unnecessary insurance payments.”
The VL 5500 MDVR 360° camera solution for Boughey’s articulated lorries comprises of three cameras – forward facing, nearside and offside, plus a 1TB hard drive capable of storing approximately two months’ worth of storage.
Verilocation also installed forward, nearside, offside and rear cameras in four of Boughey’s rigid lorries, and an in-cab monitor to aid drivers with actions such as reversing and turning.
The camera solutions also provide live remote monitoring, enabling Boughey to log in to the cameras from anywhere, at any time to view live footage and data, as well as the ability to remotely request and view historic footage which is stored on the camera’s hard drive.
