Services: External Transport Manager – Amber Operators

As an amber graded operator you have some work still to do to achieve top level OCRS compliance. Enter our Target Green OCRS Management service which is an individually tailored programme to drive up your OCRS rating and achieve that targeted green rating.

We will handle your maintenance planning, liaising between yourselves and your maintenance provider to arrange planned maintenance and defect repair with minimum impact to your business. We will work in concert with your management team to assess and make recommendations to improve your defect reporting and daily walk around check procedure. We will also look at how we can improve MOT first time pass rates to push your OCRS score into the green.

Tachograph downloading and analysis is a vitally important part of remaining compliant and its possible to hold a green OCRS and not have any procedure in place! We will come into your business and work consultatively with you to ensure the most hassle free tacho management system is in place. We can advise on hardware and software to suit your budget then take over all reporting requirements and handle infringements, driver counseling and retraining as necessary. Along with day to day tacho compliance we also manage driver licensing checks, tacho expiry, DQC expiry and make recommendations on JAUPT approved Driver CPC modules to make best use of the 7 hours a year requirement to further your business goals.

As an amber operator, the most likely reason for your score is defects in roadside checks. We will attend your site on a regular basis to double check the first use check of your vehicles each day. Basically, we will do a walk around check of our own to check against the drivers check and provide training and tips where deficiencies are found. We firmly believe that its better to train and support than to follow disciplinary routes in these matters so we will do all we can to help your drivers achieve compliance before reaching for the disciplinary stick.

The government loves records, paper upon paper to prove everything has been done. Record keeping is therefore vitally important to maintaining your green OCRS standard. We maintain a full backup of your maintenance and tachograph records in our offices in Sheffield meaning that the DVSA can come to us for inspections rather than to you, and also that in the event that your records are lost or damaged, we can provide a copy so you never don’t have the bit of paper that the DVSA need.

We can also arrange a scan and cloud store service so that you can access your records from any internet enabled device at any time. Cloud storage is provided by selected services and all have the guarantee of multiple site servers meaning if one goes down, your data is available from other sites in the company. 0% downtime and 100% safe. Data security is also important so we carefully select our cloud storage partners based on uptime guarantees and the strength of their cyber defenses.
