A slightly alarming recent news item revealed that almost a third of HGV drivers admit falling asleep at the wheel. You don’t have to be an expert in road safety to see what the consequences of that might be. Long hours and lack of facilities for long-distance couriers are putting lives at risk.
This has important implications for us. At Rock Solid Deliveries, we understand the pressure couriers are under to deliver their goods on time – we commit to same day deliveries ourselves – but no delivery drivers should be expected to take unnecessary risks to achieve that. There are times when being a same day courier will demand hard work and lots of miles, of course. That’s just the nature of the job. But there are important measures to put in place to make sure a driver is safe. We do all we can to make sure our couriers get regular breaks and good quality sleep, for a start.
We have never and will never lay unreasonable expectations on our drivers. We believe in looking after our same day couriers so that they will look after our customers. You can depend on Rock Solid Deliveries to take good care of your package and your driver.
If you want a same day courier who will get the job done, safely, call Rock Solid Deliveries today. Call 0800 999 8220 for a no-obligation quote.
