DSV Introduce an “Alcohol Barrier” in Sweden

DSV Introduce an “Alcohol Barrier” in Sweden

DSV has announced that at their new cross-docking facility in Jönköping in Sweden, innovative steps to preventing drunk driving are being implemented. They have installed a so-called alcohol barrier which requires that drivers pass an automated sobriety check.

“With the introduction of the alcohol barrier we send an important signal not only to the truck drivers but also to other DSV staff, our customers and the general public that we take our responsibility for safety seriously,” says David Möller, Deputy Managing Director of DSV Road AB, Sweden.

To be able to leave DSV’s premises in Jönköping drivers must pass a breath test. The barrier opens only if the breath test is negative for alcohol. If the breath test is positive, the barrier will remain closed and if subsequent tests are positive, the authorities will be alerted.

The alcohol barrier at our Jönköping facility is not only the first one at a DSV facility, it is also thought to be the first installed at a company in the transport industry. DSV Sweden will continue to invest in safety-promoting initiatives including more alcohol barriers. Next in line for installation of an alcohol barrier is DSV’s Landskrona terminal.

“We are incredibly proud to be involved in DSV’s efforts to shoulder increased responsibility on the road,” says Christer Folkesson, Managing Director of AutoSober Sweden AB, manufacturer of alcohol breath testing devices.

Several Swedish ports are also testing automatic sobriety checks for drivers coming in and out. The tests are believed to contribute to reducing the number of intoxicated drivers of both cars and trucks.
