Delivery

Vehicles are a "necessary evil" in the delivery business and the largest manageable risk that most businesses face. Whether your company delivers packages, mail, beverages, or potato chips, your drivers face dangerous driving situations every day, including narrow alleys, interstates at rush hour, crowded shopping centers, neighborhoods, and more. The situations become even worse when the computers, cell phones, and radios your drivers need to interface with the clients and schedule their routes and deliveries become serious distractions to their safety.

The Center for Transportation Safety works with your drivers to help them balance their responsibilities and focus on safety. Let us help you build a good foundation of safe driving habits in your drivers.

Too often in the delivery business, you need drivers and you need them now. But how do you really know if the person you just hired is any good? CTS can evaluate your drivers quickly, helping you weed out the bad drivers, strengthen the marginal drivers, and confirm the good drivers.

We also provide periodic safety topics and/or simulations to help invigorate your safety meetings and bring an outside perspective to your operations.
