Why Luke’s our hero…
As a result of recent events, such as COVID-19, Brexit and the lifting of national lockdown restrictions, Luke’s job role has intensified and his responsibilities have increased massively.
Whilst the rest of the world came to a standstill, the haulage industry saw an influx of freight travelling through their networks, most of which were classed as essential goods. Luke worked tirelessly to ensure he and his team were continuously in control, loading vehicles strategically and ensuring that all freight reached its final destination on time, despite being short staffed as a result of the furlough scheme.
Luke has also overseen stock movements during Brexit and as we know, the delays caused within the haulage industry during Brexit have been atrocious. With the majority of customers using our storage facility ship to the EU, we noticed a lot of inward freight being received for storage purposes however no pallets were despatched for outward delivery.
However, Luke managed to structure the contents of his warehouse strategically, ensuring it was possible to locate any one pallet at any time despite there being more freight than usual. He did this whilst maintaining exemplary levels of cleanliness within the warehouses.
The lifting of national lockdown restrictions again saw an increase of freight travelling through our network. Luke yet again displayed incredible organisation and management skills, ensuring no delivery was missed.
The past year has seen us reach record breaking volumes and we’ve experienced staff shortages across the board as a result of obvious absence. Despite all of this, Luke has demonstrated the flawless ability to organise and prioritise his workloads and warehouse environments. He is our RHA hero.
