A message from the Owner;


"We are, as a business facing an incredibly challenging time, due to the onerous custom requirements and other significant post Brexit issues. We believe however as such a niche and specialist haulage business, and probably the best at what we do UK wide, we will not only survive this difficult period but thrive, as others fail to respond to the challenges currently faced.


For this reason, whilst many are seeking to downsize and furlough, we are bucking the trend and seeking an office administrator, with the best aptitude for getting the job done, and helping us navigate the mountain of form filling and grasp the opportunity of more business ahead.


In UK transport company terms, we are a relatively small operator, with 12 HGVs, specialist trailers and drivers employed by us, along with 2 escort vehicles and drivers, but large in terms of the niche market we command and an average turnover of 2.5m. A small family business run with most importantly a culture that reflects this. Our current admin staff and drivers are an incredibly loyal bunch, we must be doing something right, and our staff turnover is 0.5 - 1%"
