Following the installation of the Teletrac Navman GPS reporting system in all vehicles within the company’s fleet, Aggregate Industries has kicked off this new recognition scheme, based on scorecards that reward safe driving behaviours and styles.
Each month, the top three drivers in each UK region will be announced and each quarter the top haulier will be named. There will also be annual awards, which will include Aggregate Industries Driver of the Year and Top Haulier of the Year – all award winners from across the year will receive prizes for their achievements.
Ben Young, Head of Road Logistics at Aggregate Industries, comments: “Utilising the Teletrac Navman technology now installed across the fleet, we are able to recognise and reward those drivers committed to safety and encourage everyone to achieve operational best practice.”
With safety as one of its top priorities, Aggregate Industries operates a robust theory and practical testing process when recruiting a new haulier which includes requiring them to achieve a minimum of FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Bronze accreditation – this new reward programme illustrates the company’s commitment to not only recruit safe hauliers but to also ensure they operate safely throughout their careers.
