We emphasise the importance of quality customer interactions across the whole business. The ATC recruitment induction & screening process is designed to educate and train all sub-contractors about the requirements and expectations under the chain of responsibilities.

We also seek the following personal attributes with candidates:

  • Punctual, reliable, accountable, trustworthy and team player
  • Experienced, competent, professional, positive attitude and customer-centric
  • Clean and personal pride in appearance
  • Clear communicator and able to use technology
  • Safety conscious with a good driving record.

To ensure competency each driver must achieve a 100% induction and screening score prior to commencing any type of work with ATC, the Driver must provide then supply the following documentation prior to register as a supplier with ATC;

  • Current drivers license
  • Driving record
  • Registration certification
  • Comprehensive vehicle insurance

In addition to Police Checks where appropriate, ATC has worked closely with the Australian Federal Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development with regard to air cargo accreditation. Consequently, ATC has been migrated from RACA to the more appropriate Accredited Air Cargo Agent (AACA) status. As a part of this, all ATC drivers undergo online airline security training (certified upon completion) with the Department of Infrastructure. 
The following is an excerpt from Department of Infrastructure website: The AACA Scheme complements the existing Regulated Air Cargo Agent (RACA) Scheme to cover businesses that transport and handle air cargo. To become an AACA, your business operations must include the road transport of cargo that will be carried aboard an aircraft. For further details, see the AACA website: http://aaca.infrastructure.gov.au/faqs/

We insure all vehicles are equipped with the necessary equipment relevant to the vehicle type. This ensures goods are protected and transported safely. Below is the list of equipment our drivers are expected to have at all times.
