Bibby Distribution use the FTA handbook as it contains invaluable best practice and legal guidance to ensure our drivers are competent and effective in delivering the service to our customers. The handbooks are professional, easy to navigate and interpret and a great reference guide for drivers to carry. Having them personalised allows them to reflect our corporate image and convey business specific messages to our mobile workforce within a professional, controlled document that is useful for our drivers. Drivers feedback is always excellent.
