John Shropshire, CEO of G’s Group said, “We operate a diverse fleet of vehicles across a large geographical area, and recognise the risk that this operation creates.

It is of the highest priority that we control and limit the impact our fleet operations have on our employees and members of public.

Through effective interaction, measurement and control our objective is to operate our vehicle fleet in the safest way possible, continually improving as new technology, information and resources become available.

We are delighted that we have seen significant reductions in the number of incidents and have been recognised for our commitment”
