American Trucking Associations (ATA), the largest national trade association for the trucking industry, announced that it has renewed the Lytx DriveCam safety program as part of the ATA Business Solutions Featured Product program.
This is the seventh consecutive year of Lytx’s participation in the ATA Business Solutions Featured Product and ATA Corporate Partner programs.
“The trucking industry emphasizes safety in everything we do and we are always looking for ways to leverage technologies to improve safety outcomes,” ATA President and CEO Chris Spear said. “When we are able to observe both safe and unsafe driving decisions using in-cab technology like the Lytx DriveCam system, we can more effectively teach safety behaviors and maximize risk avoidance among our industry’s professional truck drivers.”
Research has shown that video technologies and driver coaching have the power to transform fleets through improved safety, efficiency and productivity, according to ATA. The Lytx DriveCam safety program is a video telematics system for commercial and government vehicles, combining video-based coaching with predictive analytics to help clients find the root cause of risks in their fleets and take action before collisions happen.
Adding Lytx’s most recent offering, Lytx Video Services to the DriveCam program can help fleets tap into on-demand continual video, auxiliary cameras and optional live stream of the road in order to help them evaluate compliance with company procedures, verify service and discover opportunities to generate additional revenue, according to ATA.
“Our No. 1 goal is to make sure our clients and their drivers arrive safely at their destinations, with cargo intact and ready to pick up that next load of essential goods,” said Rob Abbott, commercial leader, enterprise trucking, Lytx. “As a safety-first organization, we know that ATA and its members share this vision, which is why we’ve had such a dynamic and longstanding relationship with them, one that we are proud to extend this year as an ATA Featured Product. Making America’s roadways progressively safer each year is our mutual objective.”
