How We Work

We are incredibly excited about the future of logistics in the UK! On one side, a huge shortage of HGV drivers.On the other, a steady flow of people choosing driving as their career.It’s the perfect mix. Our job is to bring the two together.

1/ HGV driver training

We are partnered with Specialised HGV, the UK’s largest HGV training firm, so we’re uniquely positioned to support newly qualified drivers straight out of training.

2/ Matching supply with demand

We find employment for drivers of all levels of experience through our direct relationships with large UK logistics brands, and by tapping into opportunities with market-leading agencies.

3/ Guaranteed driving hours

We promote temporary and permanent driving positions, but always ensure that EVERY contract comes with a guaranteed minimum number of hours per week.

4/ Ongoing support

HGV driving can be a career for life, so we offer ongoing advice and recruitment support to all drivers, from that first job and all the many driving hours after that.

5/ Shaping the market

We’re on a mission to re-shape how employers see newly qualified HGV drivers and the investment that is made in their development. We work hard to build long-term loyalty between drivers and employers.
