West Yorkshire haulier takes Stay Home message on the road
A West Yorkshire haulier is spreading the ‘Stay at Home’ message far and wide thanks to new livery on its lorries. ADD Express, based in Elland, has added the important message to the backdoors of its trucks to support the NHS’s plea to stay at home in order to save lives during the coronavirus pandemic. As keyworkers and part of the Pall-Ex network of hauliers, ADD Express are keeping vital supplies on the move, with Managing Director, Dave Fairbrother, and Operations Director, Mark Dunne, both getting behind the wheel to deliver essential goods.
Dave Fairbrother comments: “While we are keeping the wheels of industry turning, we thought we would get the message out there at the same time. We’re out on the road around the clock, so it’s an easy way for us to show our support. “We’re a key link in the UK supply chain and we’re all proud to be playing our part. “It’s an incredibly challenging time, but it remains a proper team effort here at ADD Express.
Along with our incredible drivers, I’ve been out trucking, delivering food supplies and Mark has been out in the van delivering essential goods. “We owe GQ Signs Ltd a thank you for their support with getting this completed and on the road so quickly.” ADD, along with the entire Pall-Ex network have joined over 700 logistics businesses to put their combined fleet of 23,500 vehicles at the government’s disposal.
