Food for thought

A NORTH west food specialist has introduced a driver training programme following research which showed 85% of its accidents were due to its own drivers.

Records also showed that half of Hitchen Foods' 40-strong fleet were involved in an accident every year but after introducing driving training with Peak Performance, the group has slashed accident rates by 40%. Driver error has also improved with accidents down to driver behaviour falling to less than 25%.
