New transport manager
Nick Craddock has joined Quickslide as its new transport manager, with responsibility for all aspects of the fabricator’s transport functions.
As well as taking over the day-to-day management of Quickslide’s vehicles and drivers, Nick will be overseeing fleet compliance, route planning and ensuring that deliveries are made on time and in full to customers who are kept up to date with accurate information.
“I’m delighted to have joined Quickslide where, as well as supporting the drivers in all aspects of their roles, I’m keen to create improvements to the planning process to ensure better delivery information for all our customers,” Nick said.
Nick has 20 years’ experience as a transport manager in various sectors including distribution, pallet networks and production companies.
“My priority is also to increase our use of IT on the road. For example, using vehicle tracking linked to order profiles, in conjunction with rolling out digital handheld devices to all our drivers for delivery information and proof of receipts, so we can provide even greater – and faster – visibility to customers regarding the status of their orders.”
