What was the most challenging thing you’ve ever transported / most challenging circumstance?

I always get a kick out of solving complex logistical puzzles. We had a contract to pick up multiple loads and deliver to locations all across the UK. The pickup and delivery times were all fixed, leaving little margin for error. Our solution required 51 vans over a 48 hour period. It was challenging, but very rewarding.

Another that I like involves a shipment from Bradford on a Friday, for clearance and delivery in Italy on the Monday. That sounds routine, and it would be, except the load was a very valuable machine – worth over £1,000,000. That’s a precious cargo. The customs clearance itself takes a bit of time to arrange.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I’m a very active person and love to walk, run and mountain climb.
