During this unprecedented coronavirus outbreak, key workers including hauliers and logistics teams have played a vital role in keeping essential retailers stocked and delivering life-saving supplies to medical facilities and pharmacies. At Drive Personnel, we understand how important these services are at this difficult time, and are working tirelessly to provide our clients with qualified, experienced HGV drivers and transport staff.
Daily walkarounds are conducted by drivers to check the inside and outside of the lorry or other HGV and to confirm that the vehicle is safe to drive. It is the responsibility of the driver to thoroughly check their vehicles every working day or be at risk of facing financial penalties.
Like every other profession, training is a big part of career development in the transport industry. The more training you do and the more skills you learn, the more likely you are to increase your earning potential.
