City Line Distributors has signed a contract to roll out DriveCam Inc’s system to its entire fleet. In addition to improving safety and reducing claims costs, City Line has decreased CSA citation charges and improved compliance scores since implementing the system.
“As a safety-conscious company, we are very motivated to increase safety and reduce claims costs, both of which we are experiencing now with DriveCam,” said Steven DiZinno, director of operations for City Line. “We also took a cue from big names in the food distribution industry and looked at the driver risk management solution they were using. Since implementing DriveCam’s program, we’ve had a huge reduction in seatbelt violations, use of handheld devices, and speeding. Our drivers are definitely more responsible and safer on the road, which has improved our CSA compliance scores and reduced citation charges.”
DriveCam addresses safety by combining data and video analytics with real-time driver feedback and coaching, resulting in reductions in cost and fuel consumption. It accomplishes this using its Driver Science Engine. Through a patented, iterative process of scoring, prioritizing, and tracking results of driving behaviors, this model identifies behavioral improvement opportunities for increased safety. In-cab video captures driving behavior, which is objectively reviewed and scored, then passed on to the fleet for use in coaching drivers.
Fleets manage the program through DriveCam Online, a web-based online portal. Integrated into DriveCam’s DC3 video event recorder and the DriveCam Online reporting system, the Fuel Management Solution combines real-time, in-cab feedback with online reporting and coaching to improve fuel efficiency up to 12% and lower emissions.
