NEW SERVICES DRIVE GROWTH FOR DRIVERS DIRECT
The positive results come after a strong performance from the company’s new logistics division as well as the maturing of the six branches it opened last year. The logistics division has also reported that it now has more than 42 vans and trucks on the road every day and that the recruitment business provides more than 1,200 drivers to client businesses each week.
Gethin Roberts, managing director of Drivers Direct, comments: “The investments that we have made in new offices, staff and equipment have paid dividends and allowed us to grow to meet the strong demand we are experiencing for our people and services.
“We have hit the ground running again this year and made a very positive start with the high demand for drivers continuing. We anticipate that this will continue as we head towards Christmas and we are well placed to build on this market leading position in the coming years.”
Established in 2002, Drivers Direct covers all driver classes, from chauffeurs and fork lift driver’s right through to LGV Class 1 and 2 drivers, supplies more than 1200 drivers a week to clients from across the public and private sectors. The company currently has a network of 21 branches across the UK.
