Maritime Transport drives road safety in 2020

Despite all the challenges 2020 rained down upon us, Maritime Transport accomplished some of its biggest road safety milestones.

With a significant reduction in road-related incidents and an increase in the number of drivers achieving top-end telematics grades, over 2,000 of Maritime’s drivers received a bonus payment in December for their outstanding safety performance. With the safety bonus initiative now in its eight-year, payments averaging £600 per driver were made, with a further 69 drivers across the company’s depot network received an additional £1,000 in recognition of optimal telematics grades for safe and efficient driving, as well as remaining incident-free throughout the year.

‘With a fleet that covers over 130,000,000 miles per annum and 19,500+ weekly moves, the safety of our drivers and other road users is absolutely paramount at Maritime and a key consideration in everything we do,’ said John Williams, Maritime’s Group Executive Chairman. ‘I am immensely proud of our driver workforce, and the incredible work they carry out each day to help us achieve high levels of safety, particularly during the pandemic, a period which has highlighted the essential work and critical role that drivers play in our nation’s economy and meeting high demand to keep Britain moving. The safety bonus is nothing short of well-deserved and a testament to their hard work.’
