FTA recognises work of Maritime Transport Ltd with Roadworthiness Award

Monday 26 June 2017

The Freight Transport Association has presented Maritime Transport’s Bristol Depot with the FTA Roadworthiness Award for 2017 in recognition of its high standards of vehicle and trailer maintenance, and for controlling driver related defects. 

FTA's Roadworthiness Awards highlight its members' efforts in keeping their fleets safe, legal and efficient.  They also recognise excellent standards of vehicle safety, condition and maintenance and are designed to encourage and reward high standards of compliance with vehicle condition legislation.

FTA’s Senior Contract Manager, Eric Higham, presenting the award to Maritime’s Bristol Depot Manager, Clive Cook, said: “On behalf of FTA I am delighted to present the prestigious Roadworthiness Award to Maritime Transport’s Bristol Depot in recognition of its excellent standards of vehicle safety and compliance with vehicle condition regulations.  This Award reflects the high standards of the group, and I would like to congratulate all involved on the efforts that are made to ensure that the fleet is safe, legal and efficient at all times.”

Maritime Transport Ltd is the largest container transport company in the UK, as well as a leading logistics provider, focusing on successfully providing its customers with safe, high quality and cost effective services.  It was the work of the organisation’s Bristol depot in particular that was recognised for its high standards in controlling driver reportable safety related defects and which ultimately won the FTA Award.

Maritime’s Fleet Director, Stuart Wardlaw, said: “Maritime is delighted to receive the prestigious FTA Roadworthiness Award.  We are incredibly proud of the high standards we maintain throughout our fleet, and as safety is a high priority throughout our work, this award can be attributed to everyone in our high quality workforce and recognises the exceptional contribution they make to maintain our excellent safety record.”
