The Future

A great believer in planning for the future, Matthew has been proactive in training the next generation of truck drivers through our own unofficial academy in partnership with Transport Training Academy.


Our apprentices Start by washing trucks, driving a fork-lift, working in the warehouse to ensure a structured apprenticeship is followed through to a LGV licence, we are investing in the younger generation to give successful applicants the chance to progress to be truck drivers.


Jack Harker now holds an LGV2 licence and Daniel Hughes will be next!
