Logistics BusinessUK Parcels Carrier Unveils Safety First Initiative

UK specialist parcels carrier Tuffnells has launched a new initiative to improve further the health and safety of its drivers and depot colleagues with investment in new technology and systems.

The new health and safety campaign, ‘Think Safety First’, has rolled out nationwide across all 37 depots and Tuffnells has unveiled a new fleet of 14 network trailers with additional safety features, cargo nets and vehicle cameras as part of a range of new safety measures in its health and safety strategy.

New vehicle cargo safety-nets have been installed for protection against falling packages and parcels, thereby improving the levels of colleague safety. The initiative will also see the launch of a range of new Linde counterbalance forklifts and Linde P250 tugs, which will allow for more heavyweight freight to be moved safely around depots. The campaign also sees Tuffnells retro-fitting all its older vehicles with dash-cams.
