Many companies will be confident that they manage their logistics compliance regime to a high standard and they shouldn’t be subject to the same roadside stops and site visits needed to ensure compliance for less well managed operations. But they may be put off applying for ER Exemplar Operator status by the complexity of mastering the exact requirements as they differ from current practice, fully educating everyone involved and the constant vigilance required to make sure teething problems don’t trigger unnecessary alerts.
There is now a solution to help with these problems for companies that are interested in preparing themselves for Exemplar Operator status. Following Labyrinth’s successful bid to become DVSA approved auditors for Earned Recognition; the company has developed a new SilkThread® module for Earned Recognition.

A series of questions under 9 compliance topics, guide companies through the exact requirements for ER compliance and highlight exactly where action is required.
Labyrinth is also able to assist with consultancy support and pre-audits and the requirements for maintenance software, tachograph information and dashboards to comply with the KPI requirements.
