Despite the Covid-19 lockdown, and the anticipation of some bitter financial losses, we have been pleasantly surprised at how our team has been riding the storm and resilient in its face.
I was recently interviewed by Stuart Todd on behalf of the Lloyds Loading List, the article can be read here.
Expecting to see a massive decline in our road freight services to our core European markets, we have been able to maintain all services throughout this period. And in actual fact, our road freight service to Italy has only been lightly affected, ending just 15% down in April.
Back in 2000 when the company was founded, I made a conscious decision to specialise in the road freight transport of dangerous goods. Little did I anticipate then that this industry, least affected by this pandemic, would be one which would keep our heads above the water in such unprecedented times.
As we approach our 20th anniversary, just three months away, my wife and I take great pride in having such a dedicated team of individuals, many who have worked beyond the call of duty at this time, to ensure we keep our services running and come out of this period stronger.
And of course, the governments proactive response (despite their critics), and the great work of the health services should not go without great adulation.

There is a poignancy about the timing of Vera Lynn’s passing: the songs she sang, of encouragement and hope, and above all, memories invoked. We are in difficult and unprecedented times. Her songs and messages of hope eighty years ago are acutely relevant today. Everybody knows her story, no introduction required, no matter ones age. […]
