Hurst Transport Services Ltd was established in August 2017, led by Director Mark Hurst CMILT. Our lead consultant, Mark has Chartered Member status within CILT as well as extensive experience and credentials in the logistics and transport sector. As an International CPC holder and nominated Transport Manager on four Goods Vehicle Operator Licences, Mark Hurst is able to call upon experience and knowledge gained from a career spent leading effective transport operations.
With this experience and knowledge, combined with a diploma in Commercial Vehicle Fleet Management, Hurst Transport Services Ltd are able to offer a number of management and compliance services to assist Transport Operators of all sizes.
The services we offer are tailored to individual companies and the issues that affect them, whether they operate one vehicle or one thousand. Our experience - gained in both SME and enterprise companies within the transport sector - tells us there are too many variables for any two operations to run alike and our services are designed to reflect this.
> We allow directors, senior managers and stakeholders to obtain a ‘true view’ of the compliance status of their fleet and drivers, without diverting resources and staff
> We undertake independent reviews of your fleet, drivers and Operator Licence to provide comprehensive and completely transparent report
> You benefit from external, independent audit and review providing a list of improvements - and you get the support and assistance of our team to implement the protocols and to achieve recommendations set out
> Our vast experience of fleet management may allow us to identify operational efficiencies and cost reductions that have a positive financial impact on your business
If you believe there is a potential requirement for an external compliance service, you should act on this intuitive feeling.
The impact of failing in compliance, especially in the road haulage industry far outweighs the cost and resource of ensuring the operation is compliant.
> Personal Risk - Non-compliance creates personal risk for directors and owners including convictions, fines and barring.
> Licence Revocation - Statutory authorities can revoke your operator licence or impose strict conditions.
> Damaged Reputation - Not all publicity is good publicity, particularly when it comes to professional transport operations.
> Asset Loss - Severely defective vehicles can be seized by authorities or could be involved in road traffic collisions.
> Public Inquiries - Failings in compliance could see you facing the cost and embarrassment of a public inquiry.
