 DPD for ‘Safety Above and Beyond in the final mile.


DPD for ‘Safety Above and Beyond in the final mile.

“A primary school asked if we could go and talk to them about Road Safety” so we did! Students learnt about blind spots, braking zones, how they can have “passwords” for road drills and left knowing more about the dangers of sharing space with vehicles.

Our company became more active and included the UK’s first Strategic Partnership with Highways England. Signed in March 2019 by a Director of each organisation it has allowed sharing of best practice, arranged the trial of weather information gathering on vehicles and we shared the stage at larger Road Safety Events. Through our Partners at Highways England we have become involved with BRAKE, the Road Safety Charity. Contributing as a Corporate Sponsor and actively work together on events.

In September 2019, in only our first year of activity with BRAKE, this company was Highly Commended in the Community Road Safety section of their Annual Awards. This recognition encourages more acceptance and support internally. At present the team all have other roles within the organisation, some of the work does overlap but a lot of the passion for Road Safety comes from highly talented people who care enough to lead our organisation in this field.
