Fleet Source wins Training Programme of the Year at Talent in Logistics Awards 2018

The Terrorism Risk & Incident Prevention CPC training from Fleet Source was named Training Programme of the Year at annual Talent in Logistics Awards 2018. The Award was presented by special guest host Jeff Stelling, presenter of Gillette Soccer Saturday and live football and Award Sponsor the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.

“With this ‘TRIP’ Initiative, Fleet Source has developed something entirely new to the road transport training market: the UK’s first Terrorism Risk and Incident Prevention programme, which is deserving of the Training Programme of the Year Award,” says Ruth Edwards, Talent in Logistics Event Manager.

TRIP has been designed so that commercial fleet operators, managers and drivers can be educated on the risks of terrorism, the nature of the threats that they may face and a range of safety precautions they should implement to significantly reduce the possibilities of their vehicle being hijacked or stolen and used in a terrorist incident, which could potentially result in saving lives.

“Safety and helping to protect people from harm is our day job, and we are delighted that our TRIP programme is being recognized in the industry for doing just that,” said Nick Caesari, Managing Director, Fleet Source. “We are thrilled to have received the ‘Training Programme of the Year’ award for TRIP and we would like to thank the team at Talent in Logistics and all those involved in the judging process,” Caesari concluded.

The Talent in Logistics Awards was created to celebrate professionals at every level of learning and development, and reward those who are inspiring the next generation of logistics and transport talent.

On Thursday 21st June 2018, logistics professionals attended the awards ceremony at the Telford International Centre, to recognise and celebrate talented individuals from across the sector. There were 16 worthy winners, from trainers, instructors and Learning and Development (L&D) Managers, to LGV drivers and apprentices, HR Managers and Transport Managers.

A list of all the winners can be found at http://www.talentinlogistics.co.uk/2018-winners/ .

“Investment in training to keep staff safe is important for any logistics operation,” adds Ruth. “Moreover, it is commendable for a company to put such importance of preparing its valued team members to deal with any eventuality, even terrorist incidents.”

Event organisers have announced the next Talent in Logistics event, which includes the annual Awards and also a daytime conference, to take place on 27th June 2019 at Arena MK in Milton Keynes.
