Mexico City, December 9, 2020. – For the 15th consecutive time, Solistica received the National Road Safety Award in the category of Primary Distribution Operation, as well as in the category of Secondary Distribution for the 7th consecutive year, awarded by the National Association of Private Transportation (ANTP). 121 company operators were also recognized for their excellence in road safety, currently adding more than 831 awarded collaborators since 2005.
In this edition, Solistica also received the Health and Hygiene Recognition, a new category that awards the best sanitary practices to protect hygiene in the health of employees and the environment, as well as the inclusion of technology in the units to reduce risk.
The company also participated in the Road Safety tests that were carried out at the Mexican Transportation Institute (IMT in Spanish) in Querétaro, with a unit articulated in doble measure, showing the brake with a self-adjusting ratchet. This test demonstrated that double articulated vehicles have the appropriate technology for a safe operation.
“These awards recognize the commitment and responsibility of Solistica, but mainly of our collaborators, with road safety, health and hygiene. In the company we execute policies and guidelines established in our processes to deliver a quality service and the best solutions. Receiving health and hygiene recognition, especially in times of emergency, shows the primary commitment we have with the health of our people, our clients and their families”, said Jessica Ponce, Director of the Dedicated Fleet at Solistica.
In the twenty-first edition of the delivery of the National Road Safety Award, the operators and companies that promote the culture of accident prevention were publicly recognized for using the best practices for the benefit of road safety in cargo transport both in the city as on the road.
The 121 winning operators of Solistica are from all the operations in Mexico, both Primary Distribution and Secondary Distribution. Each of them underwent an examination and it was also taken into account that they had no road accident, any disabling factor or indicator of unjustified absenteeism and that they were safety promoters.
The evaluation to be considered for the award was carried out by a third company who was in charge of collecting and analyzing the documentation, visiting the facilities of the participating companies to certify the degree of compliance with the application of the Road Safety Management Manual prepared by ANTP in adherence to the international standards of ISO-39001, and the practical training of drivers on the road.
Solistica offers comprehensive logistics solutions that include FTL transportation, LTL distribution, multimodal solutions, warehousing, value added services, international logistics and vehicle maintenance, which consider road safety as their main axis, reducing their loss and accident rate indicators in their operations.
