DriverMetrics: ‘Multi-drop Delivery Driving: What are the risks?’

10 March 2021

DriverMetrics has published a white paper addressing the risks associated with multi-drop delivery driving.

Written by DriverMetrics Research Director, Dr Lisa Dorn, the white paper enables managers to:

● Understand the risks associated with multi-drop delivery driving.

● Learn effective methods to assess individual driver risk and interventions to improve safety.

● Discover the tools that can help improve recruit and select safer drivers

Dr.Lisa Dorn said, “The British economy was changing even before the pandemic arrived on our shores. In the last decade there has been major growth in internet shopping and vans are taking much of the strain, delivering huge quantities of groceries, goods and parcels. Lockdown has led to an even greater internet retailing surge, requiring an army of drivers’ multi-drop delivering goods. Our new white paper explores how organisational factors can affect delivery driver behaviour and the evidence around the risks of multi-drop driving. It considers how driver behaviour may be affected by the nature of the driving task, and makes recommendations for assessing drivers and targeting interventions.”
