Vehicle transportation company Kurbads earned the Golden category among International transport companies! Ivars Čiblis, head of the truck service, was present to receive the award: “It’s always harder to defend the 1st place then to earn it for the first time. Of course, it’s very nice to be appreciated but to be the best is our team’s work every day – we are always looking for options how to get better and improve our operation. I want to say huge thanks to the organizers, they have done a massive work for this event. And also the awards ceremony felt alive and it was full of good humour!”
Four criteria were crucial to decide the winners among the international transport companies: vehicle fleet and it’s main parameters; establishment’s policy and action about accidents, accident management and monitoring; establishment’s involvement in risk management; human resources(drivers, driver selection, training, control).
