VUE are delighted to announce a successful trial of the Low Bridge Alerting System with XPO Logistics, a leading provider of freight transportation services.Read More
An innovative bridge strike solution that prevents bridge strikes, and collisions with other road height restrictions.
Detects every low bridge in the UK
Including other height restrictions such as car park barriers
View alerts on a map to see an audit of exactly when/where drivers were alerted
Alerts based on Live Drive Time
No excessive alerting when in queues or on motorways
Around 2000 bridge strikes occur in the UK every year, that's an average of 5 a day. This results in not only huge cost implications, but also significant loss of reputation and even in some cases the loss of a fleet's operating license.
They take place due to poor route planning, distracted drivers, and unknown vehicle heights - all of which are related to human error.
With the Low Bridge Alerting System, no driver input is needed; the driver doesn’t need to know the height of the trailer their tractor is attached to, as it has already been inputted into the alerting system, helping to stop bridge strikes from occurring.
