Powerday Transport Manager Gains Cilt Chartered Status
4th August 2015
Powerday’s Transport Manager Bill Cox has been awarded Chartered Member status of the internationally recognised Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). Membership of the Institute is in recognition of continually improving knowledge and skills along with a commitment to the development of the sector as a whole.
Bill has been involved in transport in London for over thirty years and in recent times has led the Powerday fleet to FORS (Freight Operators Recognition Scheme) gold status accreditation and achieved Champion status for Powerday in the CLOCS (Construction Logistics Operators Cycling Safety) scheme which promotes safety in the Capital for vulnerable road users. In addition, Bill has joined the Greater London Freight Council and has been asked to sit on the newly formed FORS waste forum. With the daily challenges of running a growing fleet safely in London, Bill aims to share his experiences and promote best practice whilst learning from other operators.
Mick Crossan, seen here presenting Bill Cox with his certificate, commented: “I’m delighted Bill has become a member of CILT. We always want to achieve the highest possible standards in every area of our business and Bill has placed the Powerday fleet firmly at the top of the tree. I congratulate him on this latest achievement”.
Bill’s other great passion is boxing and specifically amateur boxing in London, he is Chairman of the Referees and Judges Commission having been an Olympic class referee himself. Bill has taken an active role in developing the relationship between Powerday and the London Amateur Boxing Association which has achieved so much in recent years (please read the report on this).
We were pleased to have awarded this contract to Powerday. They have delivered their services efficiently and reliably, achieved high recycling rates and 100% recovery, meeting our requirements throughout the project. They have been easy to deal with, reasonable and fair. We have been particularly impressed with their account management and waste reporting capabilities
