Industry Analysis

In peace with the economic development, the cargo transportation business of the logistics companies grow fast while transportation accidents also increase accordingly.

Major causes for cargo transportation accidents:

1. Driven by interest, some drivers drive at over-speed or with overloading, which easily leads to an accident.

2. Since most truck drivers drive after noon or at night for long hours, during which time they easily get tired and drowsy and there is a high possibility for an accident. On the other hand, the driver has poor vision at night, which likely causes a forward collision or lane departure crash.

3. The truck is of big size and has many blind spots that will block drivers’ visions especially when they make a turn and change lanes. Under this circumstance, an accident may happen due to drivers not being able to see the road conditions.

 

Once an accident happens to the truck, there will produce great casualty and loss. Therefore, to analyze the causes and hazards to an accident and pertinently strengthen the fleet management is very significant. Introducing advanced vehicles, technology and equipment and taking precautions earlier also play very important roles in reducing transportation accidents, protecting staff safety and lowering operation cost of the enterprise.
