Leeds Parcel Company (LPC) has acquired two more top-weight vehicles to meet customer demand, as well as promoting its depot manager to director.
Two DAF Tractor units, along with a new 18-tonne rigid and two brand-new trailers have joined the fleet to accommodate high demand.
â€œWe are currently inputting 89% more pallets than we did at this stage last year and deliveries are also up by 15%, hence the constant need for new vehicles,â€ says MD Dave Wilby. Â
LPC is one of the top five inputters into the TPN network.
â€œOur growth is so strong that we have added 12 new staff members in the past 12 months, bring our total workforce to more than 70,â€ he says.
Tom Roberts has been with the company now for 11 years and for the last five years has been depot manager. With his excellent understanding of the business and the operation, he is ideally placed to be operations director.
â€œTom knows the business inside out and he is extremely capable,â€ says Wilby. â€œGiving him a wider remit will enable us to grow the business and continue to raise standards.â€
