The team at Culina Logistics Milton Keynes have been awarded the FTAvision Compliance Award for the third year running.

The FTAvision Compliance Award is presented to the Culina site that has, over a complete calendar year, kept their EU driver’s hours and working time rule infringements to a minimum when matched against other Culina sites.

To win this award three years running shows the fantastic attitude the Milton Keynes team have towards compliance. The drivers understand what is expected from them and are committed to keeping infringements as low as possible.

“It’s great to see the Transport Team at Milton Keynes setting a very high standard and showing a concerted effort to ensure repeat infringements are kept to a minimum.” Said Mick McCarron, Transport Director.

Culina Logistics Milton Keynes has a robust procedure in place where they monitor closely any driver infringements. They look to re-train at the earliest opportunity so that a driver who may be weak in a certain area can be brought up to speed quickly. This sets an excellent training standard and following re-training drivers very often do not repeat the infringement that they made previously.

All Culina Logistics (Chilled) and ex Culina Ambient sites had their 2016 tachograph data processed by the FTA (freight Transport Association). The FTA were looking at infringements, number of re-offenders, utilising the FTAvision system to de-brief drivers correctly, a percentage comparison against Culina sites and industry sector average.

Congratulations to the Milton Keynes team. This is a team effort and everyone involved was instrumental in this achievement.
