I recently visited DHL in Crick, one of the largest employers in the constituency, to tour their site and learn more about what goes on behind the scenes!
I was hugely impressed by their new training programme, Driving Ambition, which aims to tackle the national driver shortage by providing fully funded training for applications to qualify as LGV drivers. I even got to take part in my own driving simulation (although I may need I bit more training before I'm trusted with the real thing!).
This really is a fantastic scheme, and I would encourage anybody looking to become an LGV driver to sign up at www.dhl.com/ukidrivingambition.
It was also fascinating to discuss DHL's short and long term sustainability goals, with plans to achieve zero emissions by 2050.
