Motor Transport Awards 2012

1 Jun 2012

The partnership developed over the past three years between Dextra and Wttl has been recognised as industry best practice by the Motor Transport Awards, resulting in the apprenticeship programme being shortlisted for the Apprenticeship of the year award. Tim Pickford, Director at Dextra has championed the route of apprentices and has seen this as a route for young people to forge a career in Logistics, much as he did himself starting as a apprentice mechanic.

Currently 3 candidates have completed their 18 month Logistics Operations Apprenticeship and are now employed by the company. 6 further candidates are now on scheme either working on Driving Goods Vehicles, LGV Mechanics or Logistics Operations Frameworks.

Langdons - SAFED

7 Oct 2010

Alongside a comphrensive NVQ training plan for over 400 drivers and 150 warehouse operatives, Wttl have trained Langdon's in house SAFED Instructor trainers. Using these trainers, Langdons have rolled out the SAFED programme throughout their driver workforce with some excellent results.

Ron Smith, Training Manager for Langdons, gives an outline of the benefits:  

“All our trainer/assessors have recently attended a SAFED development instructors course with WTTL. On the first opportunity we had to put this training into practice the savings made were quite significant, if this could be replicated across the country, the savings for Langdons and the environment would be huge”.

An example of the savings comes from an assessment carried out on 20th July 2010. The driver did 3 trips to Wiveliscombe, where, with the SAFED training given, fuel efficiency increased from 6.70 mpg to 8.60 mpg after the 3rd run, this equates to a total improvement of 28.4%.

Wiltshire Council - SAFED

4 Oct 2010

Wttl have been working alongside what was Kennet Council (now the unitary Wiltshire Council) to drive down their fuel costs using the SAFED programme.

The scheme has been a success, with Wiltshire Council Workforce Supervisor Ian Spanswick telling us:

“SAFED driver training has significantly reduced our fuel usage; the course also helped staff understand how driving practices have changed over the years with developments in engine technology. It has improving driving standards and reduced maintenance costs.In many cases it has made a noticeable difference in their own cars which is a benefit for all”.

(Training Manager, Thamesdown Transport, Swindon)

“When we wanted our in-house instructors to complete a train the trainer course for SAFED the first place we turned to was Wtll, as we were already aware of the standard they provide.

Our four instructors thoroughly enjoyed their course and felt confident with the delivery to our staff. The drivers are enjoying the SAFED training and see it as a way forward to match the technology of the new buses in the fleet and cater for today’s road and traffic conditions.

We recently experienced our first JAUPT Driver CPC audit, the course being delivered was SAFED, the auditor gave a very good review of the content, delivery and outcome of the course”
