High demand for drivers during the run-up to Christmas has enabled Driver Hire to set a new trading record.
During the week ended 13th December, its 104-office network’s combined weekly turnover soared to £2.35m. It’s the culmination of another calendar year of strong growth.
Looking at the financial year to date, another outstanding overall trading performance sees the Driver Hire network 7.5% ahead of same time last year. With three month trading still to go fifteen of its offices have already passed the £1m turnover mark with two – Aberdeen and Enfield – breaching the £2m turnover barrier.
Commenting on Driver Hire’s record trading, Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s Chief Executive Officer said: “The continued increase in online shopping is just one factor in our record-breaking run, as customers seek additional staff to meet the Christmas delivery deadline. But that’s only part of the story. Our reputation for quality and compliance continues to put us ahead of the rest, as transport operators and businesses of all types want to work with a recruitment partner they know they can rely on.”
