Every year, staff from Abley and Interpret have the opportunity to head away for a fun-filled weekend together. This varies in location from Tekapo to Hanmer Springs to Boyle River, but the aim is always the same – to have some memorable adventures with great people, and to build relationships between the staff. This has become even more important as the company has grown, with staff spread across two brands and two offices. It’s critical to take the chance to strengthen connections between the different parts of the company.
Well done to Dave Smith and Robyn Hyde from Abley (supported by Richard Paling from Richard Paling Consulting), who have had their research report on "Use of technology to measure and improve freight movements" published by NZ Transport Agency.
Shane Ingley of our Auckland office is now a certified independent hearings Commissioner which means he is able to sit on the hearings panel on behalf of councils. The ‘Making Good Decisions Programme’ provides certification and helps councilors, community board members and independent commissioners make better decisions under the Resource Management Act. This is a wonderful achievement for Shane, and we congratulate him.
Our strategic road safety work was internationally recognised at the Association of Transportation Safety Information Professionals (ATSIP) Traffic Records Forum held in New Orleans 6-9 August 2017. Abley Transport Consultants was awarded First Place in the "Best Visualization Competition" for forecasting crash locations using existing transport data.
