Speedy Freight has announced the opening of a new branch in Bromley, unveiling its sixth new branch in four months, with other locations in York, Cambridge, Stevenage, Cornwall, and South Wales.
The new branch will deliver new driver opportunities to the area, says Speedy Freight, and it will be actively encouraging owner drivers to its preferred driver network programme.
The network has been designed to provide drivers with the flexibility to work a schedule that suits their needs.
Matt Goreham, co-general manager at Speedy Freight, said: “Following 20 years in the transport industry, both as a driver and a Speedy Freight branch operator, I am really excited to share my logistics expertise and services with local businesses in Bromley.”
Goreham will run the branch, as well as a branch in Chatham, with his wife Sam Goreham.
She said: “We have a strong driver network in Chatham and we’ll be looking to expand this driver pool with owner drivers from the Bromley area.
“Currently, we’re looking for up to 10 new owner drivers to add to our preferred driver network.
"Local drivers, including haulage partners with larger 7.5 tonne and 18 tonne vehicles, can work a flexible schedule while helping us to keep hundreds of businesses running on a daily basis,”
She continued: “Thanks to our preferred driver network programme, we’re able to utilise over 4,000 vehicles across the country to help us to deliver anything from an urgent medical sample to essential bricks needed to keep a construction site going.
“With a dedicated service model, we go direct from collecting a client’s goods straight to the delivery address, ensuring all consignments travel safely and securely.”
Speedy Freight recently expanded in the South East, with new branches in both Stevenage and Cambridge, creating up to 30 local jobs for preferred owner drivers.
