cv showCobra UK’s stand was constantly busy at last week’s CV Show, with transport operators showing a real interest in how Cobra’s mobile CCTV real-time security monitoring system, Global Live, can help them fight the growing problem of freight crime in the UK.

80% of enquiries at the telematics, safety and security supplier’s stand were for the ground breaking system, proving that operators are having to act to protect their assets, loads and people. Cobra did over 100 live demonstrations at the stand to show MDs, Directors and Transport Managers how the system works.

Cobra was surprised at the diversity of enquiries for the product. Companies interested in adopting the mobile CCTV monitoring system ranged from a second hand clothes transporter, who had experienced several instances of load interception; to a company transporting valuable works of art; to an airport operator responsible for delivering imports and exports in and out of the country; and even a company responsible for the delivery of agricultural machinery in Europe.

Global Live boasts unique live image streaming via low cost 3G networks, and combined with GPS tracking enables pinpoint location of any vehicle at any time. The new CCTV-based telematics system allows operators to literally watch over their vehicles 24/7 whether they’re out on the road or parked, and should an event occur, enables businesses to react immediately and intervene in real time.

“Footfall at this year’s CV Show was exceptionally high and our stand was busy from day one - we made some fantastic contacts! Global Live offers a unique solution to help address the growing problem of freight crime,” said Andrew Smith, Managing Director, Cobra UK Ltd.
