Holcim Indonesia has taken additional measures to ensure the safety of its drivers. In July, the cement manufacturer set up a check-point at Wates Kulonprogro, Yogyakarta, the first such check-point to be established in the Central Java and Yogyakarta region. The 2000 m2 area provides space for 20 cement trucks and drivers to rest and undergo fatigue tests before continuing on their journey. Check-point staff will also carry out vehicular tests to check the condition of the brakes, horn, tyre pressure, lights, safety equipment, etc. The check-point will be open 24/7 and around 80 – 100 trucks will undergo tests every day.
“There is no compromise for safety. Security is priority. We will ensure all drivers and vehicles are in top condition and ready to deliver our products safely to the end point,” said Kusno Triwibowo, General Manager of Logistics for PT Holcim Indonesia Tbk.
