There is a lot of variety to my role, but one of my key tasks is visiting farms and checking vehicle access so that we can ensure safe deliveries.
When I’m on farm I look at a number of safety related things. It could be for instance, the location of overhead cables near a bulk feed delivery point where one of the bulk feed vehicles needs to raise its body. I look out for power cables, soft ground, unusual angles and restrictive access to delivery points. I also consider the routes that our vehicles take to farm, considering if the roads are suitable for heavy goods vehicles or if there are bridges with weight restrictions.
Ultimately it comes down to finding solutions so that we can get deliveries to our customers safely. I believe this role is unique to ForFarmers and it’s just one of the many things we do to ensure an exceptional level of service for our customers.
