T.O.M Vehicle Rental is a company which operates in the long-term flexible vehicle rental sector. It serves customers across the UK and various industry sectors including; food and drink, distribution, construction, logistics, pharmaceutical and traffic management. The Company fit and brand commercial vehicles to exact customer specifications from small cars and vans, to 44 tonne tractor units and trailers.

As per the Modern Slavery Act 2015, this statement confirms how T.O.M Vehicle Rental has taken steps to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our business. T.O.M Vehicle Rental would rarely use the services of temporary labour and is committed to driving high standards across all of its supply chains, irrespective of sector. We believe that, in conjunction with the rigorous policies implemented by our suppliers, we can support the eradication of any aspects of human trafficking and slavery from both our and their supply chains.

T.O.M Vehicle Rental places paramount importance on only working with suppliers who treat their obligations towards modern slavery with the importance that we do. We will not work with any organisation within our supply chains that is unable to demonstrate a corresponding commitment to this. Respecting human rights and environmental issues in the supply chain is ultimately our suppliers’ responsibility; however our expectations are clearly communicated. We do not have suppliers in high risk countries.

T.O.M Vehicle Rental educates its employees regarding the types of factors which can indicate that a worker may be subject to undue influence, via training and information, and actively encourages employees to report any suspicious activity to the Modern Slavery helpline.

T.O.M Vehicle Rental actively and rigorously audits its suppliers’ legislative compliance, including compliance with the Modern Slavery Act, and identifies any legislative non-compliance to its suppliers.

The Board of Directors of T.O.M Vehicle Rental believe that driving out slavery in any form from all areas of the supply chains is fundamental to the aims of the Company and therefore have approved this statement.
