• Scottish Parcels company Small Parcel Delivery Service is expanding south of the border from 1 October and changing its name to UK Parcel Link.
The company is looking for 106 employees and owner drivers to work on a national network, together with traffic controllers, sales and warehouse staff for each of the company's 14 planned depots in England and Wales. Suitable premises of up to 1,000m2 are being sought in Carlisle, Newcastle, Chester, Manchester, Sheffield, Leicester, Birmingham, Ipswich, Enfield, Staines,
Maidstone, Southampton, Bristol and Exeter.
Managing director John Beveridge says the company will look to owner drivers and employees to do collection and delivery work in England and Wales. Drivers will be offered Volkswagen LT35Ds in UK Parcel Link livery which can be bought by the drivers or hired direct from UK Parcel Link.
The company does not plan to do any of its own trucking work. Beveridge says: "We don't want to get involved with '0' Licences. We will either sub-contract the work to hauliers if their rates are right, or to owner drivers."
