To ensure that the desired level of quality, safety and environmental protection can be implemented, every employee of the company is involved and made familiar with the relevant standards. It is important to Schildecker that quality is lived in all areas – by people for more safety in all areas.
Ongoing investments in safety and technology as well as in the company's own workshop, where vehicle inspections are regularly carried out, underline Schildecker's high sense of responsibility: evidently more is done than is legally required. The result is a comparatively low rate of accidents; therefore, people come first, together with appropriate safety measures.
The qualification of a truck driver in a C/C1 95 training course is prescribed by law. This is supplemented by annual training modules. When applying to our company, it is important that these training requirements are met in conjunction with the appropriate age. An ADR certificate is also required.
The legal basis for driver qualification is based on the directive 2003/59/EC, §19, 19 a-c Freight Transport Act, Basic and Further Training Regulation (GWB) as well as §11 Para. 4a Driving Licence Act. The following points are thus given priority:
- driving behaviour
- ensuring the safety of the cargo
- social legislation relating to vehicle traffic
- rules for the carriage of goods by road
- health, transport and environmental safety
If all requirements are met, there is nothing to stop you from leading a varied and responsible life as a truck driver – but watch the video to see for yourself how a day at work is done.
When cleaning tanks, it is extremely important to handle chemicals carefully: In addition to precisely defined precautions, appropriate clothing is worn including safety belt and goggles: safety is essential.
The internationally operating Schildecker Transport GmbH of today was founded in1945 by Karl Schildecker. The company founder started with a tractor under the most difficult post-war conditions. From 1949, the first truck was used for timber and beet transport.
Today, tank and silo transports as well as container trucking are carried out with an extensive fleet of state-of-the-art vehicles. This provides a future-oriented basis. The offer of tank cleaning as well as the additional service of a filling station for Diesel and Super 95 at discount prices complete the offer of Schildecker.
