Testimonials from Companies who use Freight Train
Lesley has taken away the headache from our Company by coming in and assessing precisely our health and safety industry requirements. On her return visit a couple of weeks later she presented us with every risk assessment and safe working practise we could require – for any event a driver could come up against. This was followed up by training for our drivers on such subjects as safe loading and unloading, manual handling and other basic legislative requirements
Our HGV drivers found Freight Train’s Driver CPC courses informative, well delivered and trainers very knowledgeable. They actually enjoyed the benefit of this training and haven’t hesitated in wanting to keep up with this on a yearly basis.
Quite often some drivers show resistance to attending training but once they meet Lesley with her infectious training style and industry anecdotes they don’t seem to mind at all.
I would not hesitate to recommend Lesley and the team to assist any Company with their training and industry compliance requirements.
Cathy Dungworth, Director, Professional Response Ltd
Lesley, thanks for another one of your Driver CPC courses here at Birds Transport & Logistics, Heywood. As always the course was so well compiled and delivered. I look forward to the next one.
Bob Curtis, Tech IOSH AllRSM, Birds Transport & Logistics
We have attended four Freight Train courses now, which have refreshed us and taught us a lot of things about road haulage in general. The way you put the training across is very good and makes the 7 hours go by in no time. It would be very hard to dispute the fact that drivers have come away without learning something.
Chris Metcalf (Transport Manager), North of England Wools
Your ongoing support has been invaluable Lesley. Not only have drivers enjoyed and benefitted from Freight Train courses, but we appreciate having our own transport consultant a phone call away.
Andrew Bostock (Group Logistics Manager), JG Pears Newark Ltd
I am quite alarmed by the feedback from last weeks CPC driver training! To discover that the feedback from our drivers was very positive could be excused, but for them to claim that they learnt things and enjoyed themselves was worrying. Clearly you have done a fine job in keeping a selection of our finest under control for 7 hours! It really is encouraging that we are already fielding questions about when the next sessions will be, and it is also very possible that we may ask you to undertake some driver training outside the scope of the CPC regime. If you need any references, any of our drivers will be delighted to oblige.
Chris Wood, Transport Manager, Redhead Freight Ltd
…I have to say that I am most surprised at the feedback from drivers having attended your course. Whilst I am surprised that they actually expressed that they enjoyed the day, I am more pleased by the positive comments and discussions that have taken place as a result of the things they have learnt. I believed I had a competent team of drivers, but clearly your training has enhanced their knowledge and embedded legislative requirements, which of course shall be to the benefit of KLG.
Colin Watmuff, Managing Director, KLG Europe – Bradford Ltd
…The comments from my drivers after your course were excellent. The subjects covered, drivers hours, walk round checks, tachograph use and fixed penalties were totally relevant to the work of a driver and as a company I now feel more confident that we can totally rely on our drivers to work within the legal framework. You stated at the outset that the objective of the course was to protect the operator’s licence, equally as much as protecting the driver’s licence. Well done, Lesley, I feel you achieved your objective.
Steve Wilson, Managing Director, HLH International Ltd
My head was banging when I got home on Saturday. I did learn some new things. Drivers seem to think it is wasting their time and they do not need to learn, but we all do and I did.
Eric Markey, Proprietor, ENS Transport
“Lesley is infectious. Her knowledge of the transport and logistics sector, both nationally and internationally is second to none. She has obviously not gained her experience in the trade from books – she has been at the sharp end!
Passionate about her industry and knowledge she delivers her training courses very well and keeps the attention of even the most unwilling of participants.
Lesley is a great asset to the RHA Regional Council. She thinks outside the box and keeps herself and others around her motivated.
Lesley is a great ambassador for the Road Transport/freight industry. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. I often seek and value her opinion.”
