Driver ID Scheme

Operating a mandatory driver ID scheme to ensure optimum site security



  • Only haulage companies that have been approved by our customers may register drivers. Please contact your customer/container operator to obtain this approval.  Haulage companies will need to provide contact details for their driver administration.

  • Once approved the haulier will be contacted. They can then provide our Card Admin Team driver details, including full name and driving licence number. 

  • Driver enrolment PINs will be issued to the haulage company administrator.

  • Drivers will then need to come to site to enrol on the Driver ID scheme bringing two forms of ID including their photo driving licence and their enrolment PIN.

  • Drivers issued with cards who change haulage companies will need to be "adopted" by the new company. This is done by the haulage company administrator emailing our Card Admin Team.

Enrolment (Issue of Cards)
