“We have worked with a number of recruitment providers over the years, and have experienced a number of the pitfalls often associated with agency drivers – namely poor time keeping and reliability, lack of experience, and communication issues, particularly where English is not the driver’s first language.
Savanna were recommended to us for our LGV (HGV) driver needs, and since we started working with them, we’ve had none of these headaches. Availability is very good, even during busy peak periods, and all drivers undergo a face to face interview with Savanna to check their suitability and experience for the role. A willing and positive attitude is important for this kind of work, and the drivers Savanna source for us are always motivated, professional, and willing to go the extra mile.
When talking to other transport businesses that require temporary or permanent drivers, we’re always happy to recommend Savanna because we know they deliver.”
Barry Osguthorpe, Transport Manager - Lloyd Fraser
“We’ve been working with Savanna since its inception and they continue to be our first choice when looking for Class 1 and 2 temporary drivers. Naturally we have used other driver recruitment agencies in the past, but the key difference with the team at Savanna is that they have a real understanding of the requirements of our business.
This understanding comes from their experience in the industry. Will and his team have either worked as LGV drivers in the past or have had positions in the logistics sector, and this is evident from their ability to match the right driver to the job. It’s not a case of simply placing any driver with the correct licences into a role – Savanna understand this.
The key issue for most logistics companies is driver availability, especially with the current industry shortages. Savanna’s driver availability is very good, and they are usually able to help out at very short notice. The quality of driver is typically excellent - so much so that several have joined Palletways on a permanent basis.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Savanna for driver recruitment. They provide a quality service and are always happy to help."
Geoff Wildman, Operations Manager - Palletways
