Leeds tops Johnsons Apparelmaster road safety awards
Johnsons Apparelmaster champions fleet compliance and continuous improvement with Freight Transport Association-backed award
Workwear specialists Johnsons Apparelmaster were delighted to reward their Leeds plant with a 2018 Tacograph Compliance Award, which is supported by the Freight Transport Association (FTA).
The award recognises the organisation’s high standards when maintaining compliance in line with drivers’ hours and tachograph regulations.
Peter Freeman, Johnsons Apparelmaster’s Transport Manager for Leeds, was celebrated for his commitment to fleet compliance and continuous improvement throughout 2017. The awards are supported by the FTA and recognise outstanding contributions to maintaining and improving compliance standards through the Johnsons Apparelmaster Road Transport League Table.
Karen Reid, Key Account Contract Manager for the FTA, who helped present the award to Peter commented: “Road safety and compliance is extremely important to the individuals who spend so much of their time on the road, the company they work for, and for society. As one of the largest trade associations representing the interest of the transport industry since 1889, we are delighted to back Johnsons Apparelmaster’s award scheme.”
Throughout 2017, all of Johnsons Apparelmaster’s Transport Managers were measured against a range of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Among the measurements for success were tachograph compliance, meeting Miles per Gallon (MPG) targets, reducing and reporting accidents and a transport audit score. The results were monitored through a league table for Transport Managers from 17 different plants and coming up trumps to win the award and the trophy for the Leeds plant was Peter Freeman, with the solid support of his supervisors Keith Wharton and Phil Keeling.
Coming second in the awards scheme was Phil Derry, Transport Manager for the company’s Uttoxeter plant and third place went to Andrew Aughpin, Transport Manager for the Lancaster plant.
National Transport Manager for Johnsons Apparelmaster Ian Greatrex said: “We place compliance in our logistic operations as a top priority. We constantly aim to drive compliance standards upwards and are proud to demonstrate our focus on these key areas through this new league table award. Huge congratulations go to Peter, Phil and Andrew and their teams.”
