AMP has been awarded Earned Recognition status from the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency), recognising the company as an exemplary operator in upholding driver and vehicle standards.
Joining just 99 other companies across the UK including John Lewis, DHL, Sainsbury’s and Tesco, the accreditation recognises a commitment to maintaining the highest possible standards in safety and reliability across the HGV fleet.
Successful applicants must demonstrate “a strong track record of compliance and adherence to standards, and ”must be able to show that they have robust systems and processes that promote effective and proactive transport management” (DVSA, 2019).
All internal procedures, from driver hours, servicing and maintenance through to adequate insurance and safety measures across the fleet and operating centres, have been rigorously tested during the external audit.
The DVSA’s external recognition of the business as having a proven culture of compliance and effective transport management provides the proof and reassurance that AMP is standing amongst the safest and most reliable HGV fleet operating in the UK.
Bob Osborne, Fleet Maintenance Manager, has been the driving force behind achieving this fantastic recognition of quality procedures. With over 30 years’ experience in the field, Bob’s outstanding knowledge and organisational abilities have helped make this ambition a reality.
Commenting on the direct benefits of gaining Earned Recognition status, Tony Vick, Head of Operations for AMP Biomass Fuels said:
“This is a fantastic step forwards for AMP as it gives both our drivers and our customers piece of mind and certainty in the knowledge that we are consistently holding our drivers and vehicles to the highest possible industry standards.”
