A TRANSPORT company that pulled out of the haulage market completely at the end of last car to concentrate on providing training says it is already seeing bigger profits.
Tyne and Wear-based Van Hee Training, which sold its transport arm to Sheffield company TAL Logistics ('TAL Logistics buys Van Hue Transport', CM 14 February), has specialised in training for some time. But it was only in December that it pulled out of traditional haulage altogether.
ManagingdirectorJohn Charlton says: "We concluded that the only way we could fully concentrate on our trainingbusiness was to sell the road haulage side. That is already proving to be the right decision for our business, as we benefit from higher returns."
Due to the continuation of the firm as a training specialist, the distinctive brown and yellow truck livery will remain on the roads as drivers go under instruction.
