CORBY-based Route Logistics Ltd has experienced massive growth in the last two years and has credited Northampton logistics recruitment specialist NN1 Personnel for the part it has played in achieving this.
The family business, which provides palletised distribution services within the UK, Ireland and Europe to a number of large blue chip companies, was approached in 2016 by Justyna Sodel, Director of NN1 Personnel, and asked if it needed any help to source temporary drivers.
Chris Robinson, Transport Operations Director at Route Logistics Ltd, said: "Justyna was persistent, but in a good way. I was impressed with her attitude and aptitude and, as a business which regularly utilises temporary HGV Class 1 drivers to cover night shifts, weekends and peak periods such as Christmas, we are always looking for additional support in this area.
"NN1 Personnel listened to our requirements and initially supplied drivers on an ad-hoc basis in line with our customer demands. In fact, over the Christmas period, NN1 Personnel
was able to supply us with 20 drivers over a one-day period which enabled us to stay on track with our deliveries at an extremely busy time.
"As we have grown so has NN1 Personnel but that has not affected the service levels we have received. Our relationship has continued to be about supply and demand. In my opinion, NN1 Personnel started off small and got its business model right. It is now scaling that up. I can categorically say, that working with NN1 Personnel has been a big part of Route Logistics' success over the past two years."
Justyna added: "It has been a pleasure to work with Chris and his team at Route Logistics as they share the same core values as we do, always being completely honest with us and treating our drivers well. It has been great to watch Route Logistics grow and to know that their business has developed, in part, because of the reliable and good quality drivers we have provided means a lot."
