TruckSafe accreditation is based on a set of minimum standards a trucking business should meet for it to be a safe, responsible operation.
For operators, accreditation shows that they are meeting their due diligence and duty of care.
For customers, TruckSafe provides confidence that operators have responsible work practices, well maintained vehicles, healthy and trained drivers and management systems to meet their transport needs. This also helps customers to meet their due diligence requirements.
This is the only risk mitigation tool to manage your animal welfare compliance and reputation.
