c2c have used Cordant Cleaning for just over a year now, the contract was set up as a labour only contract, supplying staff to c2c's entire cleaning operation, Cordant Cleaning are a staff caring company that always goes beyond just supplying staff, they are constantly interested in staff welfare, the staffs working environment, our internal cleaning standards and above all, all health and safety issues, all which are paramount for us to run a clean and safe operation.
I have a good working relationship with the contract manager (Nicholas) and additional support from the team that sits behind him.
I still have a lot more I want to achieve within the cleaning department and I'm continually looking for ways to improve and set the bar even higher, Cordant Cleaning are more than just a "labour supplier" I'm sure Cordant Cleaning will continue to play a valuable part in what we achieve within the c2c cleaning department.

There have been major improvements on our vehicle scores at both sites thanks to you and your team.
The company has purchased 100 tins of “Harrods” biscuits as an Xmas gift from Tower to the Cordant team, can I ask that the OM & EM at each location arrange to be on site over a couple of evenings at around 20:00hrs to personally hand out the gifts and not only wish their staff a merry xmas but also thank them for the part they have played in moving the depots up the league tables.
Operations Manager Tower Transit
Now owning 3 bus garages with over 500 buses and 1500 employees, Tower Transit provide public transport to the people of London on a daily basis. Being a relatively new company, Tower Transit has quickly become one of the leading operators in bus transportation throughout the city of London.
What were Tower Transit looking for?
We have been specialists in transport cleaning for over 30 years and know the industry inside out. Tower Transit were looking for a service provider with experience such as ours who could implement significant procedures to improve the quality of their vehicles and overall customer experience when using their transportation.
What do we do for Tower Transit?
We provide 93 members of our team to Tower Transit and we completely clean all 500+ vehicles every night which they use on a daily basis. This includes sweeping, mopping, graffiti removal, seat cleaning, window cleaning and external cleaning. We also fuel and shunt (park) all vehicles for complete organisation ready for the early morning start. Our service also extends to the garages that the vehicles and staff operate from. We provide a full premise clean to all 3 bus garages that we operate in.
Our partnership began on March the 1st 2014 and already we have reduced Tower Transit’s MTS (Mystery Traveller Survey) scores for all 3 of its garages which is quite a significant achievement. This has been achieved by analysing and identifying particular problem areas with the vehicles and acting accordingly. We also work very closely with our clients making communication one of our top priorities within a contract.
