GCN Tipper Hire Ltd
What they do:
Run by Managing Director Gary Niblett, GCN is rapidly growing tipper hire company based in Northamptonshire. Operating a fleet of 6 Scania and Iveco tipper HGVs, GCN has won contracts for large construction and infrastructure projects, including HS2, Alliance Rail, and many local road projects. This is due to a strong background and origins in world-class manufacturing and logistics. GCN aims to become carbon neutral in the near future.
What they achieved: FORS Silver
GCN Tipper Hire was an existing client of ours who we helped to secure FORS Bronze accreditation. FORS Silver is the next step up, with the main being on vehicle safety and personal driver development. These both ensure improved service and lower running costs of the business.
Our team of pre-auditors took GCN through their paces to educate them about Fuel, emissions and air quality, as well as performance data of their vehicles. In addition, we worked with their drivers to ensure they were fully aware of the safety equipment on the vehicles to ensure all blind spots were covered during a range of manoeuvres. The proactive nature of the GCN team combined with the proven expertise of our FORS consultants, helped GCN Tipper Hire become FORS Silver accredited and to maintain a fully legal fleet.
