Congratulations to two of our Stobart drivers who successfully claimed Awards at the Microlise Annual Driver of the Year Awards, that took place at the Coventry Building Society Arena last night.
Stobart Driver, Simon Poll from Leicestershire, won the Award for Driver Hero of the Year, following a fatal road traffic collision, where Simon displayed not only quick thinking but exceptional bravery, which lead to him receiving a commendation from Leicestershire Police.
Stobart Driver, Ian Simpson from Cumbria, won the Short Distance Award, based on his driving performance recorded through Microlise. This shortlisting followed a review of over 220,000 drivers’ performance data from across the UK.
Neil Rowbotham, Managing Director of Transport for Stobart said, “I am truly delighted for both Simon and Ian on winning these awards, it is testament to them both for the approach they have and the commitment they give, not just to Stobart but to their profession, that they have been recognised – well done to both on such an outstanding achievement.”
