Brexit Impact

The Brexit effect, and what to do about it.

Whether you’re for it or against it, the uncertainty of Brexit has caused “enormous damage” said the SMMT.

And whether or not things are going to get better, there’s every sign they’re going to get harder first. Especially if we crash out with no deal(s) in place at all.

One thing is sure: running a fleet isn’t about to get cheaper.

But it’s not all doom and gloom for fleets. In fact, there are several ways to start reducing the cost of running commercial vehicles right now.

UK Road Safety Week to focus on ‘Step up for Safe Streets’

November 18th to 24th will see the return of UK Road Safety Week, with this year’s theme being ‘Step up for Safe Streets’.

Organised by Brake and sponsored by Specsavers and the Department for Transport, the week-long campaign aims to improve road safety awareness up and down the country.

Preparing for the future of UK road safety

Joshua Harris, director of campaigns for Brake, the road safety charity, said: “Road Safety Week provides a unique opportunity, every year, to focus the public, organisations’ and policymakers’ attention on the vital issue of road safety.”

In 2019, the campaign will focus on how forward-thinking design for both roads and vehicles can help to stop human error from causing death or serious injury.

It also aims to highlight the importance of leading healthier lifestyles and will promote walking and cycling, as well as ensuring the air we breathe is cleaner through improved emissions standards and limits.

Campaigners and action groups will be taking part in events throughout Road Safety Week this year, with resources for all those who would like to take part in support of the annual campaign to be available from September.

Jenny Smith, general manager for Tele-Gence, commented: “Road safety should be a top priority for every motorist, so it pays to remember the precious lives that are put at risk when drivers fail to act responsibly behind the wheel.”

Happy Fleet, Happy Fleet Manager

To maintain a happy and hardworking fleet, it’s vital to give your employees a healthy working environment including reasonable and flexible working hours, sufficient training and support, health and safety policies and worthwhile benefits. While most of these will be elements that fall under HR’s remit, fleet managers have an opportunity to offer their drivers something extra with a reward scheme linked to their fuel card.

There are lots of loyalty schemes out there but BP has created something a little different from most, focusing on making every day brighter. Recent research, commissioned by the BPme Rewards loyalty programme, reveals that a good night’s sleep, a free coffee and a delicious treat are just some of the things that make us feel good day to day. This proves that the simple things in life can put a smile on your face and there is no reason that this shouldn’t ring true in the workplace. 

BPme from Fuel Card Services

BP’s new loyalty scheme lets drivers reward themselves in store with simple pleasures such as money off a coffee or a chocolate bar to brighten up their day. Fleet drivers can use their BP Plus fuel card from Fuel Card Services to earn points every time they fill up and have the chance to earn little treats as well as big rewards in store and from the online catalogue. This is a simple way for fleet managers to empower their drivers and ensure a happy and rewarding experience for them at no extra cost to their business.
