Shell keeps industry ahead of the curve with Guide to Managing Drivers

Tuesday 06 September 2011

Sponsored by Shell, one of the world’s leading energy providers, FTA’s Guide to Managing Drivers is set to become an industry must-have, providing advice to companies from the recruitment and induction of new drivers to ensuring their fleets are being driven safely, legally and efficiently.

Perrin Baker, Shell UK Oil’s Senior UK Marketing Manager, Commercial Fleet, said:

“Achieving fuel efficiency with smarter driving techniques and better journey management will have a real impact on a company’s bottom line. This guide will allow businesses to achieve just that.”

Managing drivers is no easy task; from mandatory driver training and tachograph requirements to driver walk-around checks and health and safety, failure to comply with the law can have a devastating effect on the company involved. 

Perrin Baker continued:

“Shell is proud to sponsor FTA’s Guide to Managing Drivers; the legislative landscape we operate in is a fast moving one and for responsible businesses looking to keep ahead of the curve this guide will be very useful.”

The FTA Guide to Managing Drivers covers best practice from the recruitment and induction of drivers to management of driver infringements. Crucially, it also looks at good practice when using agency drivers and provides sample forms and checklists that will help managers in their day-to-day tasks.

The FTA Guide to Managing Drivers is available from Shopfta at £15.00 for FTA members, £25.00 for non-members, with discounts for multiple copies. Order online at or call 08717 11 11 11, quoting code 4375.
