Bradford Driver Hire Closes 2017 With Record-Breaking Profits
Bradford-based Driver Hire franchisee completes record-breaking year with a £13m turnover.
The UK’s leading transport and logistics specialist recruitment company, Driver Hire reveals an all-time record-breaking Christmas and a highly profitable kick-start to 2018. Bradford-based Driver Hire franchisee reports a December turnover of £13.1m, 14% up on the same period in 2016. The boost stems from a nationwide boost in demand for Driver Hire’s team of temporary workers. Driver Hire’s chief executive, Chris Chidley, said: “Once again there’s been a big demand for our service in the run-up to Christmas.
“As in previous years, the increasing percentage of online retail sales – which create more home deliveries – has played a significant part in our success.
“In addition, our core national account customers, for whom high quality reliable service really matters, have also kept us exceptionally busy.”
Driver Hire has seen a strong trading throughout the financial year across its network nationwide. A third of Driver Hire’s 102 offices have individually surpassed a £1m turnover whilst two offices hit £2m turnover and six offices are on their way to reaching landmark targets by next month.
Chris Chidley added: “Our ability to deliver the right people to meet the demands of our customers, along with a highly compliant 24/7, 365 days a year service continues to set us in good stead.
“That is being reflected with strong trading, right across our network.”
Driver Hire is the UK’s largest recruitment business specialising in the supply of transport and logistics staff. With over 100 offices and a 30 plus year track record, the award winning B2B management franchise has become one of the most successful franchise brands in the UK.
