TNT to fit 550 additional Roadhawk dashcams

Roadhawk have supplied 550 additional DC-2 dashcams to courier company TNT.

RoadHawk supplied TNT with 500 cameras in March last year, so the additional cameras add to the rollout. TNT originally installed the cameras after trialling them in vehicles operating from its Rotherham depot for nine months in 2014.

Following the trial, TNT found that 56% of drivers stated the camera’s presence had caused them to change their driving behaviour for the better and three quarters felt the cameras improved their personal safety and security.

Simon Harper, director of operations, TNT UK, said: “Since being installed the RoadHawk technology has brought great benefits to our operation. It not only helps us optimise the speed and fuel efficiency with which we transport consignments around our network, but also provides an increased level of recording and awareness which helps improve security and safety for all road users.”

John Watkins, executive chairman of Trakm8 Group, added: “It is great to know that TNT UK recognise the importance of dash-cams and the impact they can have on the safety of their drivers and other road users. The combination of last year’s trial results and the decision to install more DC-2 cameras reiterates how well RoadHawk dashcams can enhance fleet management as a service and increase the security of drivers.

“With TNT Express doubling the amount of units across their fleet, RoadHawk cameras have proven their worth in modern delivery vehicles. We look forward to continuing our work with TNT in the future.”
