In a sector which is chronically understaffed employees need not fear an acquisition.Being part of a strong company is an advantage for most stakeholders (a number of hauliers have gone bust recently because they were not well capitalized.This is a capital-intensive sector)
Our senior team have been officially briefed and HR have all of the facts and figures but there's still nothing on the notice boards yet. All of the internal senior moves are starting to be planned across the business so it should be briefed out to a wider audience soon. On a separate note I also believe there's some new business to be announced with Halfords.
good news has been in short supply recently.Let's hope the sh reverses its negative trend.In view of the shortage of drivers the loss of the transport planning contract is perhaps not such bad news after all.
Not sure why it's not on the web site but we were briefed this week about the B&Q contract win. We've taken all of the warehousing (5 sites I believe) off DHL so will see approx 1800 new staff TUPE across to the business. Not such good news on the transport side of the contract as we've lost the national planning to Norbert but it seems strange that the company is so slow in broadcasting such a good win.
It's a little hard to say at the moment our contract is going into its quiet period although I did hear we were short of drivers the other weekend but that may have been easter weekend can't quite remember
Which is exactly what I'm saying,although in my opinion there isn't a national shortage of drivers, there just isn't the glut of drivers that supported the low costings used by wincantons business development teams when putting some of these contracts together
