Fleet Safety & Security Development Solutions

Transportation is one of the vital aspects of production.  Management of safe and secure transportation systems is  necessary for successful business operations. However, managing transportation safety and security risks has its own challenges, i.e.  The work environment, roads, law and order situations etc. are beyond direct control of the company itself.  ADCR offers its expertise which can help companies  develop and manage safer fleet operations or analyze and upgrade existing systems with newer technologies to help achieve a better safety record, save costs and optimize supply chain reliability.

Accidents have a huge amount of annual latent costs far beyond repairing vehicles. i.e. medical bills, legal costs, delivery delay costs, rehabilitation cost, rehiring and retraining of lost employees and most importantly, loss of reputation.  The return of any investment in improving safety is immense and our valuable corporate customers endorse that !

Are our operations legally compliant with the laws of the land?

Transportation laws in Pakistan are complicated and scattered. Enforcements are sporadic. But it all becomes critical in case of a mishap.

Safety Saves Money, right ?  Fantastic to know we are legally compliant, how can we improve the system to emulate the best practices in the world ?.

Luckily, improving safety in transportation is not about money and huge sums of investments – its more about clever thinking and small bits of improvements at a time. The benefits always outweigh the costs. It is important not only to comply with the Pakistani standards but to go beyond it.

“The Conventional Definition of Management is getting work done through people, But real management is developing people through work” -Agha Hassan Abedi,
(Founder of BCCI Pakistan).

Vendor development is as crucial as self-development.  Good vendor development programs are not only effective, but also convincing enough for vendors to voluntarily and committedly uptake.  The gains reflect in savings and better management of the vendor. They can be an amalgamation of Driver and Management Trainings, Analysis of procedures and protocols, adaptation of modern driver profiling and recruitment procedures, testing procedures and a good 6-monthly, yearly goal setting and a reward based, positive reinforcement program.
