Bradford-based Driver Hire Nationwide, the UK’s leading specialist transport and logistics recruiter has just completed an all-time record month.
Trading at the company’s 103-office nationwide network is going from strength to strength, with turnover for September 2016 reaching a new monthly peak at £10.7m.
Jeremy Neale, Driver Hire’s UK Managing Director, commented, “We’re delighted by the progress of our business over the past few years. Since 2013 we have seen annual network turnover increase by 28% to £100m. The positive growth is continuing in the current trading year and this September was the best month in our 30-year history. We have also won new business with several blue chip brands in recent months.”
Driver Hire specialises in the provision of temporary workers to the logistics sector, especially drivers. Neale puts the current success of the business down to several factors. These include a high demand for flexible labour, especially at a time where there is some uncertainty in the economy. The growth of internet shopping is another factor. And with Christmas approaching, a key trading period, the business is expecting more good news to come.
“We meet a clear need for our customers,” says Neale. “When they need flexibility in their workforce, we step in. There’s an ongoing flight to quality – there are lots of people who do what we do, but our customers recognise that Driver Hire goes the extra mile in terms of its selection processes and business compliance.”
“In an industry where a missed deadline can be extremely expensive for our customers, we recognise the critical nature of what our staff do. Our customers count on us to provide the best possible staff every time. We will continue to focus on being the best at what we do, and I am very optimistic for the future.”
