OUR PROCESS & POLICIES
All the policies are collectively shared with the Driver at the time of onboarding as the Driver Training & Induction Manual.
Securing the Delivery:
We evaluate every potential candidate for a driver’s role in accordance with our Driver Recruitment Policy. This includes a thorough background check for any past accidents/prosecution history, an on-road assessment, an interview to evaluate approach towards work and safety, and also a verification of all documents.
During the term of his/her employment, the driver is required to undergo medical examinations from time to time to ensure that the Driver Fitness Standard is met. These checks primarily help us ascertain that the driver does not have an impaired vision or any other medical condition such as epilepsy, heart disease, that might in anyway affect his/her driving competency.
Once hired, all drivers undergo extensive training to ensure that they are well-prepared for the challenges of the road. Their training includes modules ranging from Defensive Driving to appropriate Headlight Usage. We also have in place a strict Mobile Usage Policy to eliminate distractions on the trip and a Tiredness and Fatigue Policy that require drivers to follow specific timelines to mitigate risks of accidents from drowsiness. A set of the Road Safety Rules which drivers go through during training is kept in every truck for ready reference.
