Samsara has entered into a strategic partnership with UK-based fleet safety solutions provider, Motormax, to provide new levels of fleet vehicle safety.

The partnership will help UK fleet operators roll out an integrated, single platform cloud-connected vehicle safety system to assist fleet operators in complying with Direct Vision Standard (DVS) and Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS). The new system will also help to ensure best practice in safety, efficiency and environmental protection.

Combining Samsara’s Connected Operations Cloud and Motormax’s in-cab Safetymax system – which gives a 360-degree view of a vehicle – provides a safety solution delivered via a single platform allowing for a smoother, more streamlined process that address safety and practice requirements.

This offering delivers telemetry, video footage and bespoke warnings designed to suit the customer’s needs via one single platform, enhancing driver safety and enabling companies to better respond to incidents.

This collaboration celebrates how different companies serving the fleet sector can partner together to increase safety for drivers and citizens.

Philip van der Wilt, SVP, EMEA, Samsara, said: “Samsara’s partnership with Motormax is taking road safety to a whole new level. Our combined offering brings a new approach to the industry with real-time connected operations that puts safety fist, enabling best practices for commercial fleets. This is what happens when different companies serving the industry work together to share technology, expertise and vision and put safety first and foremost.”

Jonathan Haycock, Motormax co-founder and director, said: “We are incredibly excited about this partnership with Samsara. DVS and FORS were introduced to improve road safety and reduce incident frequency. This partnership is about helping fleet operators take their approach to safety to the next level. Our single platform technology not only assists drivers locally within the cab, but communicates to the wider operational team for continuous monitoring and training. Together with Samsara, we believe this allows us to offer something very powerful to the industry.”
