Licence Bureau will be talking to fleet operators at Freight in the City Expo about how its Compliance Managed Services (CMS) online portal can ensure its drivers are safe and legally compliant to operate vehicles.

The web platform allows companies to assess, check and improve the performance of their drivers quickly and efficiently online via alerts-driven exception management.

It combines the key services provided by Licence Bureau – Employee Audit, Driver Licence Checking, Owner-Driver Management and Risk Excellence Driver Assessment - into a simple, easy-to-navigate company dashboard.

The online display shows headline figures and risks, from where users can click through for more detailed reports and management information available.

CMS also enables automatic training sessions to be arranged. For example, a driver risk assessment and targeted e-learning may be appropriate for certain medium-risk employees, whereas a high-risk driver may qualify for on-the-road training.

London-based fleet operator Pimlico Plumbers runs a fleet of 160 Volkswagen Transporter vans and Golf cars navigating the streets of the capital 24 hours a day from its riverside HQ in Lambeth.

The company uses Licence Bureau to ensure its driver workforce is fully compliant at all times.

George Lusham, transport manager at Pimlico Plumbers, said “Our reputation is built on the quick and proficient service delivered by our engineers, and with Licence Bureau’s easy-to-use licence checking portal, we can focus on providing our clients with the high quality work they can depend on.”

Mike Reed, marketing director at Licence Bureau, said: “Licence Bureau’s service is designed to minimise the hassle and risk associated with checking whether your drivers are safe and legally compliant to operate vehicles at work.”

Reed will be at the show to talk to visitors on the stand as well as attending some of the highly topical seminars aimed at addressing common urban logistics challenges.

“I’m looking forward to the Time to Comply seminar that is a part of the 'Safe' stream,” he added.
