Aldi Atherstone takes Roadworthiness Award from FTA

Atherstone, UK: Aldi’s Atherstone distribution centre has received a 2019 Roadworthiness Award from the Freight Transport Association.

The award recognises the supermarket’s high standards of fleet maintenance and controlling safety related defects.

The association provides vehicle inspection services to organisations that are keen to achieve the very highest levels of safety and compliance and its Roadworthiness Awards are designed to encourage and reward best practice in compliance with vehicle condition legislation.

Eric Higham, senior contract manager, Freight Transport Association, said: “This award reflects the very high benchmark set by Aldi and I would like to congratulate everyone involved in the efforts that are obviously being made to ensure the fleet is safe, legal and efficient at all times.”
It was the work of the Atherstone centre in particular that was recognised for its high standards in controlling driver and maintenance related safety defects that won the FTA Award.
Marius Manolescu, regional managing director, Aldi, said: “We are incredibly proud of the high standards that we maintain throughout our fleet and transport compliance is a key priority in our work.  This award can be attributed to everyone in our Atherstone regional distribution centre, as it recognises their exceptional hard work to maintain our excellent safety record.”
