Kurbads has the safest car park in Latvia!

Last week, establishments with the safest and best managed vehicle fleets were awarded in Riga Motormuseum. The competition “Safest Car Park” is organized for the 5th year in a row, “Kurbads” won it for the third time this year.

Kristīne Rīmene, head of the “Kurbads” logistics department, in the event had a speech about Kurbads experience in education and motivation of truck drivers. She had great reviews about the speech from the colleagues.

Kristīne also received the Grand Prix: “I was really anxious before the event as I was really hoping for our win. It’s not easy to win it once and it’s much harder to it several years in a row. I think the award shows order in our establishment. And order is safety. Now, we face a bigger challenge to keep this level of performance. Back to work!”

In 2016, “Kurbads” won the prize in the cargo and special usage transport category but for this year the regulations were changed but the result remains the same – “Kurbads” wins gold medal! This time in international cargo transport category.

The participants of the competition were judged in four categories – passenger transport, local transport companies and special usage cargo transport, international cargo transport, reduced risk vehicle fleets. The jury of the competition admits – this year the competition was very tough, but the participants with their vehicle fleet management have proven that safety on the roads is the main priority for them. 

The competition is organized by insurance company “Balta”, the Ministry of Transport of Latvia, “Volvo Trucks Latvia” LTD, “Circle K Latvia” LTD and “SEB Līzings” LTD.  The aim  of the competition is to improve traffic safety in Latvia. Establishments with at least 10 vehicles are allowed to apply for the competition.
