Prestigious industry awards shortlist recognises our hard work in 2018

We have long-supported Professional Driver magazine and the QSi Awards for the tireless work they do to recognise and raise the professional standards of our industry. So, we were absolutely delighted to learn that we have been shortlisted for – not one – but THREE awards in areas that we work particularly hard in …

Community

We’ve worked with Archer Academy for many years now and this year we helped selected pupils build their confidence, increase their aspirations and engage better with school life through residential working farm experiences, extra tuition and the brilliant Being a Man festival. We were also proud to donate free transport to local volunteers and as raffle prizes, help our local nursery finance a new games area, provide even better transport to patients and vulnerable members of our community and support our staff and customers’ fundraising initiatives.

Environment

People who know us well, will know that we have a long history of industry firsts when it comes to our environmental work. From being the first operator to go hybrid in 2004, to our acquisition of EConnect Cars which made us the operator of London’s largest fleet of Electric Vehicles. We also added the new Hybrid E-Class Mercedes to our fleet of executive vehicles. 2018 marked the second year of our pioneering work with the Energy Saving Trust and also saw us widen our partnership work to include consortiums such as LoCity and ULEZ.

Private Hire Operator of the Year

The ‘QSi’ in the ‘QSi Awards’ stands for Quality, Service and Innovation. This year, our team successfully transitioned to the new quality standards of ISO 9001:2015; ISO 14001:2015 and continued accreditation to the Occupational Health and Safety (OHSAS) 18001. We achieved Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation so that we can offer our customers the highest level of security when dealing with us online. We provided special innovative medical training to increase the quality of our patient transport service and we launched our Employee Assistance Programme.

The awards ceremony will take place on 22nd November 2018 and we cannot wait.
