Driver Recognition Programme

Driver Recognition Programme

South East Asia: 

After two highly successful programmes in East Africa, we are pleased to announce that with the support of PAE and RMA, Fleet Forum will be the Driver Recognition Programme to South East Asia. The programme will start in August 2017 and will come to a closure with the Driving Champions Final taking place in May 2018 in Bangkok.

RMA and PAE | Title Sponsor

Over the past 60 years PAE supported complex and critical missions by providing global logistics and stability operations in some of the most challenging environments in the world. Safe road travel is a cornerstone of PAE’s support, and they have undertaken the task of training thousands of drivers in various countries over the past six decades, with the dual objective of expanding their own talented workforce and imparting professional skills to the communities where they operate.

Benchmarking for Road Safety

Benchmarking: the process of measuring the performance of an organisations’ processes against those of another business considered to be the best in the industry, aka “best in class.” The point of benchmarking is to identify internal opportunities for improvement.

 

The above definition of benchmarking is what Fleet Forum envisions for its members and we are happy to announce the start of a new project: Benchmarking for Road Safety. 

 

In this project, that is funded by UPS, we would like to develop a road safety performance benchmark tool. The tool supports managers to compare their road safety performance with that of their peers and with non-sector fleet operating agencies, to learn from best practices and to stimulate an environment of continuous road safety improvement. The road safety benchmark tool will be an add-on to the already existing road safety management tools and programmes in Fleet Forums’ suite of services and tools. The benchmark tool will be initially developed to be able to learn from road safety best practices, but can in future also serve other fleet management priority areas such as cost efficiency or environmental impact. 

Phases in the benchmarking process:

Typical activities related to the phase:

Phase 1 -  Planning 

Phase 2 -  Analysis

Phase 3 -  Integration

Phase 4 -  Action

Phase 5 -  Maturity

  1. Identify what to benchmark

  2. Find benchmarking partners

  3. Determine data collection method and collect data
     

  4. Determine current performance gap

  5. Project future performance levels including KPIs
     

  6. Communicate findings and gain acceptance

  7. Learning from peers

  8. Establish functional goals
     

  9. Develop action plans to close the gap

  10. Implement the actions and monitor progress

  11. Recalibrate benchmarks
     

  12. Attain leadership position

  13. Fully integrate newly adopted actions into processes

From September to December 2020 we will undertake activities to identify benchmark KPIs and the tool requirements and you are invited to lend your knowledge and expertise. 

 

How to participate: 
 

  1. Share your opinion in a survey that will launched in September 2020. The survey aims to identify what the value of benchmarking would be for your organisation as well as explore potential areas for benchmarking. The survey will also address challenges that might occur in the benchmark process. The survey will take around 30 minutes of your time.
     

  2. Participate in a virtual workshop: In October we aim to organise a workshop in which we will determine at high level:

    1. Benchmark process

    2. KPIs related to the Benchmark for Road Safety and the benchmark areas / The workshop will take 4 hours.
       

  3. Participate in our November workshop: in this 4-hour workshop we will determine the requirements for the benchmark tool. From the requirements we will draw the specifications for the benchmark tool (to be developed in 2021).
