Under surveillance

Nijman/Zeetank International Transport Ltd, a specialist in logistics and glass transportation, has implemented Astrata’s VideoLinc surveillance solution across its entire UK fleet of 46 trucks and 49 trailers.


Damage to valuable cargo (sometimes in excess of £18,000 per cargo) from its valued client Pilkington Glass and the inability to see where and when accidents were occurring was presenting a massive challenge for Nijman/Zeetank.

To solve this problem, Nijman/Zeetank chose to implement Astrata’s VideoLinc video surveillance solution, and it can now easily monitor incidents and events on its routes and view, in real-time, the location and cause of damaged cargo. VideoLinc also provides a connected video recording and playback system that checks the front, rear and sides of a vehicle, helping to monitor blind spots in order to prevent road risks. It records critical events as soon as an alert is triggered and transmits the video to the carrier’s terminal. Using the latest digital technologies, VideoLinc provides all the evidence required in case of an accident. Combining telematics data with images from the cameras placed around the vehicle, it downloads and archives video sequences triggered by driving behaviors, such as fast turns, sudden braking, accelerating or speeding.
