#SMETowkay: Eyeing growth through technology
For SFS Global Logistics, ensuring good driving habits among its fleet of drivers is more than a safety issue but a business-critical one.
Bad driving not only endangers its drivers and other road users but it could compromise sensitive cargo that is being transported. These goods include drugs for clinical trials and biological substances that must be transported in a climate controlled environment, or reach the recipient within a very specific time frame.
To nurture good driving behavior and keep an eye on its drivers, SFS Global Logistics turned to Mobile Eye, a tracking system from road safety solutions provider Chuan-Fa Auto.
The system helps avoid accidents by alerting drivers to impending collisions with other vehicles or pedestrians. It also warns drivers of lane departures and documents driving behavior.
If a particular driver is prone to speeding and braking hard, the data is recorded to allow the company to take corrective action such as issuing warnings to errant employee, according to Group CEO Roger Chew.
