TruTac has presented Carlsberg with two awards in recognition of its high fleet compliance levels.
One of the ways Philip Thompson, fleet manager at Carlsberg UK, helps his transport managers stay on top of the latest regulations and how those affect the strict operational KPIs he sets, is by holding regular O Licence meetings.
As well as discussing best practice and looking at the results from the numerous key areas by which operations compliance is monitored, the team's achievements are reviewed against internal benchmarks to ensure everyone is performing to their maximum potential.
The latest meeting was held at the offices of Carlsberg's accident management partner Sopp+Sopp in Peterborough on November 8 and covered areas including tachograph analysis, driver training style and accident prevention and management.
Carlsberg uses TruTac's TruControl software to monitor driver hours and adherence to tachograph legislation within its depots, and Jemma James, commercial and operations director at TruTac, attended to present awards for compliance in this area.
She said: "I was honoured to be part of the day and present the awards for drivers' hours compliance” she says.
The first award went to Matt Day for most compliant driver and the second to Ipswich for most compliant depot.
James added: “Carlsberg is an exemplary operator, focused on both driver and depot compliance. The benefits are clear to see in both accident reduction and fleet efficiency, as well as driver retention rates.”
