What our clients say

We had responded very early to the COVID-19 crisis and developed some really strong working practices to protect our teams whilst ensuring our customer service levels were not affected. After the initial peak in activity and change the FTA COVID-19 review gave us the chance to get an independent assessment of what we have put in place. We scored an excellent 4.85 out of 5 against the review criteria which was pleasing to see that we had done the right things for our staff and customers.

Prolog

FTA Consultants are familiar with challenges across a range of sectors…

Freight and logistics

Where efficiency is paramount, and regulatory compliance can make the difference between business success or failure

Manufacturing

Just-in-time delivery and complex supply chain management issues lend themselves to peer group benchmarking and process review

Retail

Changing consumer behaviours mean that the mining and analysis of delivery performance data can be the key to critical changes in process or even a business model

Utilities companies

Vehicles are an essential part of a utilities company operation. The company’s fleet needs to be safe and compliant as well as efficient and able to meet customers’ needs

Commercial vehicle sales and leasing

Facing the challenges associated with rapid expansion as UK business shifts from owning to hiring commercial vehicles. With sizeable fleets identifying and solving even minor issues can lead to a dramatic increase in performance (ROI)

Local authorities and emergency services

Complex special purpose vehicles creating unique inspection challenges, and large fleets that fall subject to Operator licence regulations. Increasing fleet operations efficiency allows you to tackle budget cuts as well as to keep the operation compliant with all current regulations
