Ed Rickard, Group Service Delivery Director, National Express, commented: “More than anything else, we value the safety of our customers, employees and the public generally. This priority is reflected in our policies and behaviours – the way we do business.
- We have a long-term partnership with Breathalock and fit their immobilisation & reporting system across our entire UK fleet of around 600 owned and franchised coaches operated by our partners. It forms an integral part of our driver monitoring and management system and is mandatory for any new coaches coming into the National Express network.- Ed Rickard, Group Service Delivery Director, National Express
Andrew Overton, VP Smart Transport UK, AddSecure “With DVLA statistics showing that alcohol-related bans for commercial vehicle drivers have increased by 59% in the past three years, it is clear why vehicle immobilisation & reporting technology has become a necessity. While clearly important as a prevention strategy, monitoring also facilitates the rehabilitation of drivers at a time when the industry is facing a significant shortage not only in the UK but across Europe.”
