It’s been another outstanding year for Driver Hire franchisees. Nearly half of them are celebrating annual turnover in excess of £1m.

That’s translated into another record year – its fourth in succession – for the leading specialist transport & logistics recruitment company. Network turnover for the financial year ended March 2017 was £100.5m – the first time it has exceeded the £100m turnover mark.

Driver Hire’s franchised network also continues to expand with an ongoing high demand for its franchises across the UK. During the past financial year the company received over a thousand enquiries from would be franchisees. Recent franchise developments in the network include a new office opening in Manchester – there are now three offices based in the city. In addition, three new joint ventures were announced recently – in Liverpool, Doncaster and Maidstone/Medway.

Now into its 33rd year of trading, Driver Hire is the UK’s largest specialist supplier of staff to the road transport & logistics industry. Driver Hire provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and private sector. If they’re short of staff – perhaps because of illness, holidays or seasonal demand, Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.

Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s Chief Executive, attributes the business’s outstanding performance to a number of factors: “First and foremost, Driver Hire franchisees continue to provide a business-critical, 24/7 service, that ensures our customers meet their delivery deadlines. The round-the-clock nature and reliability of the service we deliver ensures that, not only do we retain customers, we’re doing more business with them. Our annual customer survey confirms this: 90% of respondents rated Driver Hire, based on overall service and value for money, as either good or excellent.

“And, of course, franchisees do much more than simply meet the temporary and permanent staffing needs of customers,” Chris continues. “Driver Hire also offers customers a range of innovative, added-value services, such as people management and training. This, combined with our quality first approach, is helping us to deliver year-on-year growth. We’re looking forward to building on its success throughout the year ahead.”
