Team training is important to us, and the safety of our drivers while delivering commercial laundry is among our top priorities.
Our drivers are crucial to our operation, so it’s important that we train them to drive safely. Afterall, a 7.5 ton truck isn’t your average van.
To do that, we invest in our drivers completing their HGV Class 2 licence training. This gives them the utmost confidence on the road while delivering pristine commercial laundry to our customers.
Take Stuart, who’s been with us for a year, enjoys driving around the country with commercial laundry deliveries. He’s gained confidence in driving our large vehicles.
Lee welcomes the experience he now has in driving the full range of Shortridge vehicles while he’s out and about meeting the customers – the best part of his job.
Driving for almost three years, Leanne loves visiting new parts of the country and has new-found confidence in driving through different weather conditions – something the UK is great at throwing at us regularly.
Our driver David booked his HGV Theory and HGV Hazard Perception tests online. So simple and effective, yet so important.
Then there’s Cian, who likes the fact he is now able to drive the larger vehicles as it means he gets to build relationships with even more customers. The bigger the truck, the further afield he can go and the more people he’ll meet.
Our drivers are the regular touchpoint with our customers and we value each and every one of them. If you see them out and about, give them a wave!
And if you know of a potential driver who’d welcome working for a company who values safety, please send them our way!
