All of our top-of-the-range Vans, 7.5t’s, 18t’s and artics are fitted with the latest temperature and location tracking systems that poles back to our brand new transport management system. We have both dual-compartment and even dual-evaporator vehicles, meaning we can have two independent chambers on the same vehicle, ideal for frozen and chilled, chilled and controlled ambient or frozen and controlled ambient.
Our drivers are equipped with handheld PDA’s that pings back to our system and allows us to provide our customers with tracking, accurate ETA’s, what number delivery they are on whilst performing a multi-drop, arrival and departure times plus we can provide electronic POD within seconds of delivery. We can also provide temperature readouts throughout transit, giving full vehicle and temperature traceability.
We have adapted our training schedule to ensure our drivers are fully trained to BRC, MHRA, GDP and IOSH standards, plus they are put through further training with such things as Food Hygiene Level 2, so by the time they come onto the fleet it will have cost the company around £1500 each. This is a necessary requirement to maintain our service levels and ensure our drivers are fully ready to take on our bespoke and intriguing work.
