Launched in May at the ALBUM Conference, operators are jumping on board Busmark in advance of the inaugural benchmarking survey in September.
Adrian de Courcey FCILT, CEO of Coventry-based Travel de Courcey, says: â€œBusmark was in the research and development stage for over a year, but since its launch, we are seeing significant growth.
â€œOperators that have already joined Busmark range from 12-vehicle fleets to over 1,600-vehicle fleets. Collectively, these companies are operating an approximate fleet size of 6,532.â€
Austin Birks FCILT, CILT Bus & Coach Forum Chair, says: â€œBusmark enables operators to identify and share best practices in a non-competitive club environment. They are confident that they run highly professional and efficient operations, covering a range of business disciplines, such as engineering, risk and safety and customer service, and Busmark will help them to evidence these levels of corporate excellence.â€
Through the support of Marsh as Gold sponsor, and Lloyd Morgan Group, MiX Telematics and Omnibus as Silver sponsors, operators are able to join Busmark for 250 plus VAT.
