FTA Ireland picked up the The Irish Logistics & Transport Awards Safety Award at the ILTA Awards, at the Crowne Plaze Hotel, Dublin on Thursday night.
CEO Aidan Flynn says FTA Ireland’s members through their engagement on theTruckSafe Standard annual audit programme demonstrate a commitment to the highest levels of operational compliance for their heavy goods vehicles and the safety not just of their own employees but to all road users.
He said: “The standard is driving a culture of professionalism and compliance that is supporting the integrity of the haulage and own account distribution services in Ireland. It is great to get recognition for this on behalf of our members as a key objective of our founding members was to support and recognise fleet operations that put the safety of their drivers and roadworthiness of their vehicles first.”
The Logistics Associate Apprenticeship programme won the Communications Award on the night.
