TPN has invested in further supporting Partners by directly employing its first commercial vehicle drivers.
Nigel Spink and Paul Munro will work directly with TPN, using two new liveried and dedicated vehicles for Partner support and express deliveries.
TPN Group Transport Manager Lee Noble says: “Having Nigel and Paul on hand at the Hub gives us great flexibility in responding to partner requests or special circumstances. We are always proactive about anticipating and meeting Partner needs so that they can give excellent service to their customers. Having two of our own highly skilled delivery drivers gives us the ability to step in when a Partner or customer might need a specific or urgent solution.”
This is the latest in a long list of TPN’s initiatives to further improve Partners’ experiences. Previous initiatives included a driver national recruitment campaign to provide driving candidates to local partners and a free pallet recycling scheme to improve the carbon footprint of the sector and reduce the impact of logistics waste.
