Dry bulk transport carrier J&M Tank Lines is deploying Netradyne's Driver•i advanced vision-based safety camera platform and driver coaching component throughout its fleet.

"Technology like Driver•i is the future of the transportation industry," said Harold Sumerford, Jr., CEO of J&M Tank Lines. "It is an investment you have to make in the safety and well-being of your people as well as the general public. Our partnership with Netradyne is helping our drivers to be safer on the roadway and keep their skills sharp through the coaching that is available."

J&M Tank Lines will use the optional inward-facing cameras to ensure the “highest level of protection and safety” for drivers, the company said in a statement. The inward cameras can detect and alert drivers about seat belt use, drowsy driving, and distracted driving.

"Inward facing cameras offer J&M Tank Lines, Inc. the ability to truly live our core values through safety and to do our part in reducing the amount of distracted driving through partnerships with the Lutzie43 Foundation and NTTC's Zero Distractions," said Dave Edmondson, VP of safety and compliance at J&M Tank Lines.

Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, J&M Tank Lines specializes in dry-bulk transportation, with experience in food-grade, liquid bulk, and plastic materials across the Southeast and beyond. 

"J&M Tank Lines, Inc. takes great pride in its safety-first culture," said Adam Kahn, president, Netradyne. "By leveraging the AI technology from Driver•i, J&M Tank Lines, Inc. is able to empower their drivers to make smarter decisions on the road, ultimately creating a safer environment for everyone."
