SAN DIEGO, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lytx™, Inc., the global leader in video-based driver safety, today announced that dry bulk hauler Barney Trucking is deploying the Lytx DriveCam™ Program throughout its entire fleet of 250 tractors following a quick, but successful trial. With nearly 70 years in the business, Barney Trucking has developed a reputation for providing excellent, innovative service without compromising safety. It decided to explore the DriveCam® Program and ultimately move its business to Lytx from its former video-safety provider in order to gain greater service and support to improve safety.
"We are committed to safety and believe in achieving zero accidents and incidents. We needed a true, dedicated partner to work with us in reducing risky driving behavior; improving safety and helping our drivers improve through coaching. We believe the Lytx DriveCam Program provides the expertise, service and partnership that we are looking for in helping make our fleet safer," said Craig Payne, Barney Trucking Safety Manager.
Barney Trucking uses specialized equipment to transport a wide range of liquid and dry-bulk commodities, including hazmat, throughout the Western United States. It turned to Lytx to help protect its drivers during their travels.
"We are proud to partner with Barney Trucking and bring our deep industry experience to help support its overall safety program," said Adam McCarty, Vice President, Mid-Market Team for Lytx. "We expect our partnership to result in improved safety and far greater protection for both the drivers and the company."
There's a traffic collision in the U.S. every five seconds—and the total cost of collisions exceeds $300 billion annually. The DC Enterprise Program helps prevent fleets from being part of these statistics through a comprehensive fleet safety and risk management program. The Lytx DriveCam™ Program identifies the causes of risky driving and helps correct driving behaviors. The program delivers critical online tools and techniques to improve safety, performance, and fuel management. The outcome is bottom-line results via safer, more efficient drivers who are protected from wrongful blame.
