MKD Transcorp is Basic Fatigue Management (BFM) Accredited.

Operators with BFM accreditation can operate under more flexible work and rest hours, allowing for (among other things) work of up to 14 hours in a 24-hour period. BFM gives operators a greater say in when drivers can work and rest, as long as the risks of driver fatigue are properly managed.

The basis for operating under BFM is working safer. Operators who take basic steps to manage the risk of driver fatigue – such as planning trips and schedules, training drivers and schedulers and checking records – can schedule up to 14 hour shifts. Benefits to the community include better and more consistent compliance with road safety standards by heavy vehicle operators and preservation of the road asset.
