How to disinfect the inside of your truck

 

The transport sector is one of the most exposed and necessary during this crisis and hygiene and disinfection are vital for the safety of the driver.

First of all, we must know the difference between cleaning and disinfection, both of which are necessary and complementary. Cleaning helps with the elimination of germs, but does not mean their complete elimination, but focuses more on getting rid of visible dirt. On the other hand, disinfection, due to the type of products used, does allow for the elimination of any type of fungus, germ or virus, although it does not necessarily eliminate visible dirt.

Thus, when it comes to disinfecting the truck, it is not enough to clean it as usual, but after a thorough cleaning, a good disinfection must be carried out with specific products (alcohol, bleach, special cleaners) with special concentration on the steering wheel, the gear lever, the interior handles to open the doors, the coasters, the seat belts and the controls on the steering wheel, audios and screens. These are the parts of the truck with which you interact the most and therefore the most bacteria can be contained.

In addition, you must bear in mind that when you clean your cabin, you will find different surfaces and it will not be possible to use the same product for all of them if you do not want to end up damaging them. Microfiber towels, brushes, cleaners, disinfectants are some of the materials needed to carry out a successful disinfection. However, always using the necessary protection to avoid burning your skin or inhaling chemicals.

To go deeper, we share with you this video from Ammo NYC in which they show us how to carry out the disinfection process of our vehicle.

Andamur gives visibility to women in the truck industry by sharing some of their stories

 

The driver’s profession has been seen as male’s job for years, but according to new data collected by the European Commission Women in Transport-EU Platform for Change, women represent the 22% of the workforce in the European transportation field. And every time, there are more women choosing this job.

 

In Andamur we wanted to know in detail some of their stories. Why they like the truck, how were their beginnings and what complications they might have found. In this sense, we have created a short series of three chapters named Women Truckers where we can get to know the stories of Cruz Fuentes, Vanessa Almagro and Luz Seller. 

 

Under the slogan “Strong, Capable, Truckers: WOMEN”, we will spend all week honouring women in the professional transportation field. Likewise, from March the 2nd, we have installed boards in all our stations giving name and voice to our series three protagonists. An action that will be replicated in our social media with more women truckers vindicating the role of women as truckers.

 

In addition, during International Women’s Day, all women truckers visiting our facilities will get a free menu for lunch in any of our stations.

 

All these activities carried out in commemoration of International Women’s Day are enrolled within our campaign Every Trip Matters in which we focus on what really matters to those who spend their life on the road. And this week, especially, we focus on women.

Andamur starts 2020 with his arrival in Portugal

Experience, Quality and Innovation at the Service of the Portuguese Transportation Field

 

To Andamur, Spain is the market we have always worked in since our beginnings, where the keys of our business are. In 2020, we want to go beyond our frontiers and so, we have started to be present in other countries that are strategic to international transportation. We believe that our experience, an exhaustive selection of local professionals and a deep knowledge of the sector needs are the perfect combination to be transferred to other markets. In this sense, Portugal is our first destiny and our objective is to continue expanding in the coming years through the internationalisation of our services and products.

Andamur arrives to offer a great experience to the Portuguese transportation companies with the goal of bringing a bigger profit and security to our clients’ business by implementing demanding quality standards.

We present a safe value with personalised proposals that are adapted to our client’s specific needs. Our broad products and services range such as fuel cards, toll devices and taxes recovery management allow us to be agile and flexible to each of the transportation field companies. For this reason, we count on a specialised team and our own office located in Coimbra’s city centre.

Andamur has a presence in the main Portuguese professional transportation route to Europe going through Irún since Andamur Araia and Andamur Pamplona Service Stations are located in this itinerary.

In Andamur, we provide innovation to our clients to achieve a better efficiency. Likewise, Andamur airCODE is the only system in the transportation market that grants total safety in the refuelling and also has been recognised by AENOR as such.

Ultimately, Andamur is an innovative company in constant evolution that puts its experience in this sector at the service of new markets.

How to assess your drivers’ work

Cómo evaluar el trabajo de tus conductores

The choice of these indicators must adapt to each type of organisation and the activity carried out by its workers. Their management will enable you to identify different trends related to the activity of the vehicles. Trends such as the following:

 

  • Real time location.
  • Control of stops, in addition to precise information about the opening of doors and loading and unloading time.
  • Sudden acceleration and braking periods.
  • Kilometres of the route, comparing the one followed by the driver and that suggested by the GPS.
  • Starting of the engine, very important when loading and unloading dangerous goods.

 

There are many applications or platforms in the market that enable you to have good control of these parameters. Some of these are MOVILOC, 4GFlota, WeMob or Inoflota.

It is also important that drivers know how their work is going to be assessed, since knowing these parameters will help them improve their performance and effectiveness, as well as build up their confidence in the company. This way, we will achieve clear and fair objectives. It is better to set realistic objectives that will depend on the experience of each driver, which are specific and understandable.

Informing the drivers and keeping them abreast of this performance assessment is essential for the global efficiency of the company, but it is also important for them to perceive it as a way to minimise safety risks.

Key factors for driving at night

Claves para la conducción nocturna en ruta

Driving at night in the transport sector is not a choice. Even if you are an experienced driver, you should always remember a series of tips when driving your truck at night that will increase your safety.

 

  • Start the route after having had a good rest. Sleeping before starting your route is essential. It seems quite obvious, but this will give you peace of mind during your trip and will provide you with confidence and comfort while driving. Driving without having had enough rest may reduce your ability to react, and with the risks you may encounter while driving, you are prone to having an accident
  • Check that your truck lights and windows are in perfect condition. Verifying that your sidelights, low and high, brake, indicator, reverse, fog and hazard lights are working and that they are at the correct height is very important. This cannot be left to chance. Remember to turn your headlights on at least one hour before the sun sets.
  • Reduce your speed and keep a safety distance with the vehicle in front of you. Adapt your speed to your field of vision, especially in mountain areas where accidents with large animals are more frequent at night. In addition, remember that in these areas it is easy to find animals in the middle of the road which might get trapped if blinded by headlights.
  • Check the dashboard lighting systems and pay more attention to side and rear-view mirrors. You have to check your side and rear-view mirrors regularly to detect other vehicles on the road and avoid getting startled. We recommend that the dashboard light is kept at low intensity, this way you will see better whatever there is outside the vehicle.
  • Avoid driving with the interior lights on. It creates a contrast between the inside and the outside that can reduce your visibility.

And what is more important! If you feel any sign of fatigue, find a safe place to park the vehicle and get some rest before continuing with your route. Safety shall always be your top priority.

Andamur strengthens its sports and healthy life commitment with the sponsorship of six sport teams

In Andamur we keep moving forward in our commitment to promote sports and the local communities we work with. For this reason, from this year 2020 we are sponsors of different sport teams that are close to each of our service stations.

Andamur La Junquera: U.E La Jonquera

Andmur Lorca:  Lorca Féminas  A.D

Andamur El Límite: Huércal Overa C.F

Andamur Guarromán: CD Iberos Rugby Linares 

Andamur Pamplona: Basket Navarra Club

Andamur San Román: Agurain Kirol Elkartea S.D Salvatierra

In this sense, Andamur is doing several actions in order to foster sports such as our Drivers care plan that wants to promote a healthy lifestyle among professional drivers. We do it by offering healthy food menus in all our restaurants and a gym in our Andamur La Junquera station.

All these actions show our line of social commitment and are incorporated in our SCR program We take care of what Matters. A plan that focuses on five major issues based on the main Social Responsibility rules and standards and an active listening of our groups of interest: ethics, transparency and communication, social commitment, people, environment and drivers care.
