A reputation built on professionalism and integrity,
Results built on industry knowledge, understanding and involvement.

There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to the success and popularity of our training courses and transport consultancy. Delivering industry relevant training and consultancy goes without saying, but equally important is the understanding of our customers’ requirements, the professionalism of our approach and passion of our people.

The Freight Train team has over 100 years of haulage experience.   It understands better than most the day-to-day issues of the industry and its people – compliance, risk management, fleet operations… drivers, operators, planners…. It is this understanding that helps Freight Train to deliver the kind of driver CPC periodic training that adds real value to businesses and individuals by leaving them confident, competent and compliant with the demands and regulations of the industry.

Chief Executive, Lesley O’Brien, has over 30 years’ hands on experience in the haulage industry in both the UK and Europe. She remains active in the family haulage business Freightlink Europe as well as sitting on the Board and Regional Council of the Road Haulage Association (RHA) and the Yorkshire Maintenance Advisory committee alongside the traffic commissioner and DVSA.

Freight Train trainers are recruited for their industry knowledge, specialisms and passion for their subjects.

Working with Freight Train brings the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re dealing with a team you can not only trust but which is at the forefront of industry knowledge. From the quality of our services to the professionalism of our people, everything about the way we do business reflects a determination to safeguard our reputation and your business.


...The feedback from the drivers has only been positive. I can say for my part, I learned a lot and some of the things I learned have been utilised already, especially about digi tacho cards. I think Lesley you did a first class, professional job. Nothing was too much trouble. You accommodated us at a time we asked for, delivered the information well and kept our drivers attention. I shall have no hesitation whatsoever in booking our next session with Freight Train.
