Award editorial message from E2 Media.
It’s been a difficult period for businesses in the UK over recent years, having to deal with the Covid 19 pandemic followed by record levels of inflation and the cost of living crisis all leading to a squeeze on consumer spending. Whilst the global corporations will emerge relatively unscathed, the sad reality is during this time many of the independent businesses in our communities have closed their doors for the last time. That is why it is so heartening when you hear about an independent business that is bucking that trend and thriving despite the challenging climate. That is exactly what the award winning JCS Transport Consultancy has achieved, establishing a well deserved reputation as one of the rising stars of their industry.
In recognition of their achievements and the outstanding service they provide we are delighted to announce that JCS Transport Consultancy are the latest recipients of our prestigious Gold Endorsement Award. They are widely recognised as one of the absolute leaders in their field having already won several awards for their work including being named Best Transport Compliance Consultancy for two consecutive years in the SME Awards. Last year they were also winners of one of our Awards of Excellence so they join one of a select group of organisations to have won both our awards in consecutive years.
With our awards we think it’s important to recognise organisations that are bringing something new and innovative to their marketplace. They don’t necessarily have to be the biggest but they have to be an organisation that is trying to offer something different to what is already out there and above all they must offer a great product or service. We feel that JCS Transport Consultancy ticks all the boxes and are worthy winners of our awards. The awards are clearly no accident and will come as no surprise to anybody that has worked with them. In this edition we will try and give you an insight into the work that they do and the success that they’ve enjoyed.
There are many factors but first and foremost they are good at what they do with the entire team sharing the same steadfast determination to maintain the same high standards that have become such a trademark. Sustained excellence is difficult to achieve in any industry but it’s something that the team of award winning professionals at JCS Transport Consultancy have managed to achieve with quite remarkable consistency over recent years. Running a fleet of vehicles has never been so regulated and complex. What JCS Transport does is to guide their clients through their responsibilities and ensure they are compliant with all aspects of the Operator Licensing regime. Their comprehensive range of services includes operator license compliance audits, tachograph management, Driver CPC Training as well as FORS guidance and support at all levels.
They were founded by their Managing Director, Jamie Campbell who is an experienced professional with more than 25 years of experience in the industry. Jamie is a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Logistics and Transport (FCILT) and is a current and active compliance auditor. He is quite rightly regarded as an absolute master of his craft and has helped JCS Consultancy become one of the UK’s leading FORS Practitioners. Expanding further on what they do Jamie says, “Through providing expert consultancy and specifically aligned compliance audits, we’ve helped all types of fleet operators achieve FORS at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. Our knowledge and expertise speak for itself. We’ve helped many clients to achieve their accreditation with flying colours, including Kone Lifts, Octopus Energy, Cordwallis Group, TDW Distribution, Wilson and Scott Highways and Access Solutions Scaffolding” just to name a few.
Clients of JCS Transport have the peace of mind of knowing they are working with a team of award winning professionals with a proven track record. Their team collectively has more than 60 years of experience and has hundreds of compliance audits under their belts. They provide numerous courses covering the complete Driver CPC syllabus for businesses across the UK. If someone’s Driver card has expired, they can take online courses to remain certified.The CPC course modules include Prevention of Bridge Strikes, Health & Wellbeing, Safer Vehicles and Safer People, Safe Urban Driving (SUD) and Lo-City Driving. The Driver CPC qualifications aim to improve road safety and is suitable for all HGV and LGV Drivers.
As a rule, anyone who operates a vehicle or vehicle and trailer combination that weighs 3.5 tonnes or more for commercial purposes will need an operator’s license. The operator license process can sometimes be complex but the JCS team has the experience and knowledge to make the process as efficient and straightforward as possible. They provide support for all operator license requirements either through a continuous transport management service (for those using a restricted operators’ license) or one off assistance with the application form submission. Their meticulous approach to their work ensures everything is done correctly each and every time.
One of their greatest strengths is that they are continually striving to improve and always evolving. They are happy to embrace change whether it’s emerging industry trends or advances in technology in their determination to stay ahead of the curve and continue to provide a service that is amongst the very best in the industry. A great example of the innovative approach that they use is their Convey online compliance management tool. UK legislation requires all HGV drivers to undergo a tachograph analysis regardless of what type of tachograph they use in their vehicles, whether it’s digital or analogue. Their Convey system has become an essential tool that is able to help their clients obtain fast and efficient analysis as well as numerous other compliance related products.
It’s been quite a journey for JCS Transport so far and there have been some significant milestones along the way. The challenge that they face in the future as their reputation continues to grow and the demand for their services increases further will be to maintain the high standards that have given them so much success in the past. Given the track record that they have we think it’s something that they will enjoy and that JCS Transport Consultancy is a name you’ll be hearing much more of in the years to come.
