Manchester based Avail Technologies is revolutionising the logistics industry and largely reducing their client’s driver agency costs. This has come at a much-needed time as the logistics industry has been hit by 40% since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Avail’s CEO Erin Short stated: “The temporary employment industry is currently dominated by the outdated traditional agency model where hauliers are still employing agencies to contract HGV drivers and paying over the odds, and that’s not right we offer everything […]
Transaid, the international transport charity, said it had secured vital funding to help protect supply chain workers in Zambia from exposure to Covid-19.
The number of job adverts for HGV drivers fell by 7.4% last week, a reduction only surpassed by dental nurses, according to figures from the recruitment and employment confederation (REC).
The Co-operative Food Group has once again reassured its HGV drivers that there are no plans to outsource the remainder of its operation, after the planned transfer of staff in the West Midlands to Eddie Stobart is complete.
