Speedy Freight has further expanded in the South East, with new branches in both Stevenage and Cambridge, creating up to 30 local jobs for preferred owner drivers, adding to the 40 new jobs it created earlier this year.
Zamir Mohammad, general manager at the company, will run these branches, with business development manager, John Stevens, helping to support the launch.
This adds to the company’s 60 plus franchised depots across the UK.
Mohammad said: “Following a career in retail sales and business development and running an e-commerce and fulfilment business, I’m really excited to bring my warehousing and logistics knowledge to Speedy Freight and local businesses.
“Speedy Freight is now recruiting up to 30 owner drivers – mostly of vans, to its preferred driver group.
“We have access to 4,000 vehicles around the country, enabling Speedy Freight to deliver anything from an urgent medical sample to essential bricks needed to keep a construction site going.
“We operate a dedicated service, which means we will only carry one client’s goods on board at a time and we go direct from the collection address to the delivery address, ensuring consignments travel safely and securely.”
Its courier services means urgent, or sensitive freight can be collected within 60 minutes of booking, and then delivered anywhere in the UK.
It operates a fleet of 4,000 vehicles and will move any size or shape of product every day of the year.
Stevens said: “It’s a very cost-effective service for customers who need things done quickly.
“We all have those occasions where something needs to get there now. We’re ready to solve clients’ needs from any industry.”
