HOYER Driver of the Year

Three HOYER Petrolog drivers have taken top honours in the HOYER ‘Driver of The Year Awards, 2016’.

The three winning drivers were; 1st, James Givens (Petrolog Fleet, Kingsbury), 2nd Paul Greenan (Esso Contract, Stanlow), 3rd Stephen Pick (Shell Contract, Kingsbury).

The competition finalists beat off competition from HOYER Petrolog’s 800-plus drivers in the UK.

Over a period of eight months, from May to December 2015, all HOYER drivers competed to qualify for the final of the “Driver of the Year” competition. Drivers with the highest safety & efficiency scores (taken from the vehicle’s On-Board Truck Computer), along with a faultless safety and service performance, represented their contract and terminal at the final.

The finals event held at Bruntingthorpe Airfield included; skid control, roll-over prevention, defect spotting, steering wheel control, slow speed manoeuvring and a written test.

The prize for the overall winner, James Givens, was presented with a trophy and a £2250 Red Letter Day prize vouchers with runners-up Paul Greenan and Stephen Pick each receiving trophies and £1000 and £500 respectively in Red Letter Day vouchers.

Mark Binns, MD of HOYER Petrolog UK, who presented the drivers with their awards said: “The Driver Of The Year competition was launched in 2015 in the UK and proved a popular innovation with drivers on different contracts and locations pitched against each other in demonstrating high levels of professionalism and expertise in their work. We are proud of the standards all our drivers achieve daily from locations across the country. The award winners, along with all the finalists, are to be congratulated in showing an exemplary approach to delivering the highest possible quality of service whilst maintaining an outstanding safety performance.”
