Being recognised by the DVSA as an Earned Recognition Operator, Steve’s role is part of a continuous improvement plan to futureproof the scalability of the business and support the ambitious growth plans.
With over 30 years in the logistics industry, Steve has extensive knowledge of the fleet Suttons operate, the policies in place and the impact these have on the operation. This well-rounded view will ensure that strategic decisions made will have the operation and Suttons’ customers at its core.
The leading bulk chemical logistics provider brought in an expert fleet management consultant to review its workshops, engineering, structure, policies and operations. Suttons already have a robust fleet strategy and commitment to fleet replacement in place; therefore, the appointment of a Fleet Director will allow for an increased focus on this area of the business to drive further improvements.
Michael Cundy, Managing Director of Suttons Tankers, comments on the appointment: “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Steve Hassall as Fleet Director within the Division. Steve has a strong grasp of our core values, in particular ‘customer focus’ and ‘safety first’ which will be at the forefront of his decision making.
“Steve has a wealth of knowledge and will be a driving force in heading up our fleet sustainability agenda.”
Steve Hassall, Fleet Director, said: “With the recent growth of the business and extension of our fleet to over 1000 trailers and 500 tractor units, I am looking forward to developing and implementing a fleet strategy that will facilitate further growth for the Tankers Division.”
