Double Award Success For Our Fantastic Transport Team!

8 March 2018

Yesterday, Nixon Hire were honoured by the North East Freight Partnership (NEFP) with two awards. Needless to say we are thrilled!

The first award, North East HGV Driver of the Year 2018, went to Peter Shorter, who is based at Sunderland Depot.

The Partnership have recognised Peter for his great safety record, driver behaviour performance and contribution to increasing efficiency at Sunderland Depot.

Peter was presented with his award by John Bourn, Chair of the NEFP at Tyne Tunnel Offices yesterday.

Well done Peter - a real credit to Sunderland Depot and Nixon Hire!

Nixon Hire were also named North East Freight Operator of the Year 2018!! We were acknowledged for our commitment to Safe Urban Driving and the FORS scheme in the region and beyond.

The Transport team, drivers, training and depots all contributed to achieve this - it's a great accolade and they all deserve the recognition.

The North East Freight Partnership are part of the North East Combined Authorities organisation – this gathers together the local authorities from all across the region. It’s fantastic that we have been recognised in such as positive manner by such a highly regarded consortium.
