Trucking companies are always looking for ways to improve their safety culture and FMCSA rating. Safety is one of the most important aspects of running a trucking company. Safety can make or break a company. A single fatal accident, regardless of fault, can put a logistics company out of business.
One-way smart trucking companies are improving their safety culture is by producing a daily safety show for drivers, dispatchers, and company leadership. While this concept is new, it has been shown to reduce accidents and insurance rates. Two years ago, BCB Transport was one of the first few companies to start broadcasting a daily radio show for its entire fleet. After about a year of broadcasting, BCB Transport approached Copano Media Group to find ways in which to improve and make the show experience better for everyone.
BCB Transport wanted to increase the production value of their company-wide safety show. The goal was to incorporate live video, graphics, news, weather, traffic, interviews, and dashcam review footage into a daily hour-long show. Additionally, a professional studio needed to be built from the ground up within its company office that one person could produce from.
To accomplish these requirements, BCB Transport needed to have Copano Media Group install custom production computers with specialized software, PTZ cameras, preprogrammed control boards, furniture, lighting, displays, and network infrastructure. All of this had to happen without stopping show production.
This project took approximately two months to complete, from approval to installation. In addition to the installation, Copano Media Group worked on creating a show schedule and consulting with leadership on the best way to produce their safety show.
