We really do employ exceptional people

"You're only as good as the people you hire" - Ray Kroc

People make a huge difference to any business and ours is no exception. We truly believe that our people give us an ‘edge’ (excuse the pun) over our competitors. You can have all the bells and whistles but you always need great people to make it happen!

We try and look after our team too. There’s the small things we do, like a fruit bowl in the office that we keep stocked so that everyone can grab a free healthy snack, a great working environment and staff perks. Then there’s the big things we do, like invest in our staff. During 2017 we put 2 of our traffic office team through their Traffic Manager International CPC and 8 of our drivers through their Class 1.  You’ll probably be pleasantly surprised at how many female drivers we have too.

So why not put a face to a voice on the phone, or find out more about the drivers you regularly see? Or come and meet us? We’re not a faceless website full of stock images, or a fancy IT system that you can’t joke with, we’re a team of great people. Give us a call now on 01244 957 400 to let us know when you’ll be popping in!
