Transport Team Awarded Accreditation for ‘Van Excellence’1st February 2023
For the seventh year in a row, the South Eastern HSC Trust Transport Department has been awarded the prestigious Logistics UK ‘Van Excellence’ award.
An independent audit was carried out in December 2022 that looked at all aspects of the Trust fleet of vans as part of the re-accreditation process for ‘Van Excellence’. Areas such as vehicle maintenance, driver training, road risk and vehicle tracking were all inspected. The audit was then independently verified by a panel of four industry leading experts in England before the accreditation was confirmed. By receiving this accreditation, the Transport Department continue to demonstrate enhanced standards of compliance within its fleet of 216 vehicles.
Service Lead for Transport, Richard Walker said, “It gives me great satisfaction knowing that our fleet of commercial vehicles continue to be operated to the highest standards which is only achievable through well trained staff, a safe and well maintained fleet and a super back office team who pull all this together.
“This accreditation gives us continued external reassurance that we are getting things right and we are able to reassure our stakeholders of our ongoing commitment to strive for excellence.”
