McGee has won the City Mark Award 2019 for Transport Operator of the Year at the Local Authority Plant and Vehicles (LAPV) Magazine’s Future Fleet Forum.
In awarding the much-coveted prize, McGee demonstrated best practice in transport management, policy implementation, and progression to FORS Gold – an accreditation the company has held for four consecutive years. Evidence was also shown that transport operations are safely and effectively managed.
The judges particularly praised the efforts made to reduce accidents/incidents by 36% between 2017 and 2018 through smart routing and a strong commitment to driver training and driver assessments. The judges also commended McGee’s partnership with Nottingham Trent University which has resulted in a number of road and fleet safety initiatives developed.
Commenting after the awards, McGee Director, John McGee, said:
“To be named as the Transport Operator of the Year by the judges reflects our hard work and commitment. The award is a tremendous accolade for the whole team here at McGee.
“We invest heavily in our fleet, innovative technology, and our drivers who ensure we operate safely, efficiently and with consideration for the environment. We are delighted that this award further underlines our reputation as one of the leading specialist contractors in the UK.”
In a separate category, McGee tipper driver, Andy Weston, was shortlisted for his demonstration of driving best practice and going above and beyond his required duties through his continued support for the company’s road safety initiatives.
Held at London’s Guildhall, and hosted by the City of London, the most innovative, strategic, safety, and sustainability initiatives in the UK fleet management sector were recognised at the lavish awards ceremony on 23rd January at LAPV’s Future Fleet Forum.
City Mark is part of the City of London’s Road Danger Reduction Programme, focusing on road safety compliance at construction projects in the Square Mile.
In 2018 McGee removed more than 350,000 tonnes of earth from its London projects and neared 25,000 lorry movements. Every day McGee delivers safely, efficiently, compliantly and on time; whilst caring for the environment, neighbours and wider communities affected by their works.
