SUEZ introduced a fleet compliance department in 2004 to improve the standards across all aspects of operator licence activities. This department manages risk and fleet compliance audits at all UK locations as well as for our maintenance providers. Bespoke processes have been developed and are continuously improved through close monitoring of available statistics keeping safety, operational efficiency and the environment central to these activities.

Daniel Brooks, Fleet Compliance Manager at SUEZ recycling and recovery UK said: “I am delighted to receive the news that we have made the shortlist as a finalist for this FTA Logistics Awards, the nomination is testimony to many years of continuous improvement made at SUEZ in terms of fleet compliance. I feel it is only right that the recognition will be shared between all location managers, workshop managers, supervisors, regional fleet managers, regional business managers, fleet compliance auditors, and of course all our drivers who really are a credit to the work we do in this department.”

David Wells, Chief Executive of FTA commented: “These finalists represent the ‘best of the best’ of our sector; the businesses and individuals determined to keep Britain trading, both at home and overseas. They have been selected for their outstanding commitment, knowledge and expertise, and represent a wide range of UK companies across transport modes and business sectors. With a record number of entrants this year, each shortlisted business had to fight off very tough competition to secure their place in the final line up, and those who scoop the top prizes will be truly at the top of their business games. They should be justly proud of the contribution they are making to both the logistics sector and wider UK economy.”

Efficient logistics is vital to keep Britain trading, directly having an impact on more than seven million people employed in the making, selling and moving of goods. With Brexit, new technology and other disruptive forces driving change in the way goods move across borders and through the supply chain, logistics has never been more important to UK plc.  A champion and challenger, FTA speaks to Government with one voice on behalf of the whole sector, with members from the road, rail, sea and air industries, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers.
