UK: Logistics and supply chain solutions provider intends to fund HGV driver training

Logistics and supply chain solutions provider PML is offering to pay for the training of eight dedicated drivers, to be based at both the company’s London Heathrow headquarters and the soon to be opened Lympne, Kent facility. Mike Parr, managing director of PML has stated that, if necessary, the company will finance the complete training for the right candidates, as long as the applicants are able to demonstrate PML’s hallmark commitment to the highest standard of customer service. PML has previously voiced its concerns over the welfare of drivers, supporting Logistics UK’s comments regarding the banning of lorry parking for more than 45 minutes at a time in laybys across Kent and responding with news of the upcoming operation at Lympne which will provide vital safe parking and additional welfare facilities.
