Safety is a priority for us, especially when we’re transporting dangerous goods, and that means vehicle maintenance is essential. To ensure that we can take care of your transportation requirements to the best of our ability and give you the ultimate peace of mind, we have a strategic mix of vehicles and equipment, each excellently maintained.
These vehicles can effectively transport heated or chilled products, general chemicals, industrial oils, acids, and food products. Our vehicles and equipment all undergo strict quality checks and regular maintenance so that potential problems are identified and solved as soon as possible, resulting in an extremely low breakdown rate.
We have vehicles and equipment with single and multi-compartment tankers (both insulated and non-insulated) as well as steam jacketed tankers.
We also have access to audited tanker washing facilities (which are essential for the safe transport of a range of products).
All our trucks are fitted with an efficient vehicle tracking system for effective monitoring 24 hours a day. This system not only assists with determining the vehicle’s location but also in the coaching and management of our drivers, as well as incident management.
All our drivers are chosen through a stringent selection policy. They have the relevant experience and certifications required and, once chosen, are put through a rigorous in-house training programme.
Our drivers are mentored by more experienced drivers and coached on the specific requirements of our clients and our business. Driver training is an ongoing process which has resulted in a team who ensure the safety of our customers’ products, our equipment, and other road users.
Lucerne Transport is extremely proud of its drivers, which is why we only select the best. To be considered for a driver’s positions, candidates must have the following:
Minimum of 5 years heavy duty driving experience
