GLASGOW-headquartered GAP Group has been named Scotland’s Top Road Safety Operator of the Year at the annual Transport News Scottish Rewards ceremony.

Group transport manager Willie Crawford collected the award at Glasgow’s Crowne Plaza Hotel in front of 600 road haulage industry guests.

A member of the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS), GAP Group said its recent order of twelve Volvo 26 tonne vehicles and nine Scania 32 tonne vehicles include FORS approved blind spot elimination equipment, telematics with driver behaviour reporting, and edge protection around the body perimeter, demonstrating that safety is “paramount” within the business.
