Enva rolls out 4G telematics camera system for Scottish fleet

Enva, the waste management specialist, is rolling out a 4G telematics camera system to improve safety and protection for its truck drivers.

The new Durite Live cameras will be rolled out on its 130-strong HGV fleet in Scotland. The new cameras enable fleet managers to live stream footage from any camera fitted to its truck fleet.

Users can also remotely download footage immediately after a road traffic incident. When the cameras are combined with telematics, Durite Live can provide live GPS tracking and location data as well as updates on camera status. 

Enva has been working with Durite for the last five years and the company started with single forward-facing cameras, upgraded to a multi-camera digital video recording (DVR) system, then progressed even further by installing Durite Live systems.

Alan Jackson, Enva’s fleet maintenance supervisor with responsibility for Scotland, said: “We have used Durite for over five years, starting out as visual aids for our drivers, and have always found the products very reliable. The DVR systems are excellent in terms of providing recorded footage as evidence of what actually happened during an incident.

“We decided to move to Durite Live to provide quicker access to that footage and even better protection for our drivers.

“It has proved invaluable to us. This could be a collision or even something as simple as providing proof to a client that we had visited their site on a specific date and time to collect waste.”

Jacksons says the technology has allowed him to be more efficient, particularly as Scotland is a big country and Enva's vehicles can be operating anywhere within it, including quite rural locations.

He adds: "It’s far easier for me to remotely download footage of an incident than travel to the vehicle to take footage from the DVR. I also know where every vehicle is at any given time.”
