Solstor Goes Beyond Telematics to Achieve 73 Percent Risk Reduction Using Lytx DriveCam™ Safety Programme

Feb 01/2016 PRESS RELEASE

LONDON (Feb. 1, 2016) – Solstor, a supply chain solution company, delivers more than ambient, chilled and frozen goods throughout Europe: they also deliver their drivers safely from point A to point B with an intense company focus on safety. To help them in this mission, they’ve adopted the Lytx DriveCam safety programme, a comprehensive video-based safety solution, in their food distribution vehicles.

The Lytx DriveCam safety programme is a comprehensive solution that combines video capture of driving events such as hard braking or sudden swerving, data analysis of those events, and coaching insights to improve driving behaviour to avoid those incidents. The net result for Solstor – which already has an excellent safety record - has been dramatic. The implementation exceeded extremely demanding targets, demonstrating that video-driven coaching insights can wring additional risk from fleets. Solstor achieved a 77 percent reduction in driving events, a 68 percent reduction in coachable events, and a 73 percent reduction in risk after deploying the Lytx DriveCam safety programme.

“We’ve been using telematics for a long time to study driver behaviours and to support our drivers with coaching,” said Solstor Managing Director Graham Doe. “While our telematics system has given us a great head start on understanding our drivers’ on-the-road behaviours, the Lytx system does a much more comprehensive job by providing video evidence that serves as the foundation for more open and comprehensive discussions between the driver and the trainer.”

The results, Graham says, demonstrate the effectiveness of the Lytx DriveCam safety programme with ongoing improvement key metrics such as safety scores, while also supporting the company objective of continuous improvement in fleet safety.

“Safety is at the heart of our culture,” said Graham. “The Lytx DriveCam safety programme helps keep safety at the forefront of mind every day.”
