We would love your feedback
We now provide a Global Professional Service to you. A Service for Haulage Companies, Owner Operators, Couriers to Find Work...No Matter Whether You Own a Van, a Motorbike or a HGV.
We aim to make this platform an essential for as many drivers as possible, for as many businesses that need delivery and we aim to make the platform as cost effective as possible for all to use.
We want to ensure that it functions well over all devices, although in the future we do also aim to develop this site into an app for your smart devices, for your convenience while on the road.
We take great pride in offering big logistics solutions from a small family run business. Our team is up for every job, managing projects with the skill and experience our clients deserve and have come to expect.
We thrive on working closely with our customers and always want to hear your thoughts and opinions so we can grow with your needs. We want to make a difference to all the professional drivers out there. We are listening and want to do everything we can to make your lives easier. Drivers should be respected for what they do for this country and its economy, without them the UK would go to a stand-still. Just one day of no haulage on the road would take 6 months for the UK to get back to normal. Without our haulage industry, this country wouldn’t be what it is......and the UK's drivers deserve the recognition, respect and full wages for keeping Britain running. We want to help you all get that.
We offer a range of services for our registered members:
- Cheaper Fuel
- Vehicle hire
- Cheaper Insurances
We are currently working on getting cheap windscreen replacement for you and one of the biggest things we want to make a change in, is safer parking!
There is no obligation to do our work through our platform either.
Service over Profits
Great service is the most important thing to us, before all else. Many people offer a service to gain profits and will cut corners to make sure they can get their personal gain fast, and the service comes later when they can afford to offer the perks.
But we see things differently. Don't get me wrong, profit in a business is important, but if our customers aren't happy and we aren't offering them what they need, we are NOT going to grow and you will be happier using someone else, even if it means having to shell out for those services.
We are trying to keep things as cheap as we possibly can for you, we will grow slowly if that means we can offer you what you need. YOU are paramount to us.
Drivers don't need to be a dying breed
In the last few years there has been a substantial decrease in the number of qualified HGV drivers, which is affecting not only the haulage industry but the UK economy as a whole. The UK currently needs an additional 60,000 HGV drivers, with around fifty drivers leaving the profession on a daily basis. By the end of the year there are expected to be around 70,000 vacancies. With over 1.6 billion tonnes of goods transported by road in the UK, this is a crisis that needs to be abated. With long hours, long distance tramping jobs, time away from the family, isolation and the increasing level of legislative controls that take the freedom and flexibility out of the work, more and more drivers are leaving the industry.
Only 1% of drivers are under the age of 25 and the over 50's represent 47% of all drivers. The industry requires new blood. Although applying for a HGV licence can cost in excess of £3,000 with no government assistance and smaller firms may struggle to help with the bill.
This is why we aim to find reputable companies that can help bring new blood into the industry at a more affordable cost, and add it to our list of services we can offer you, and hopefully, along with our other services and networking connections, make the industry more desirable to be in.
National to Global
We were building this site based on national coverage, but even before our live date came close, this site has exceeded our expectations and we have been asked for a number of international quotes that we have been only too happy to fulfill.
We had to integrate the ability to take global ISO Codes very quickly and are now proud to say we are able to offer it as standard with the advanced search and maps covering every corner of the globe.
How we hope to grow?
We have mentioned a few of our plans above, but there is much more we plan to do.
We eventually want to open the site to everyone. Anyone that needs a delivery will be able to use us. We also want to make improvements to our system, for example, we are looking at tracking so both customers can track their delivery between destinations in real time on the map
