Logistics is an area where equality is improving rapidly, especially in the crucial role of HGV Driver. As an industry that is in the midst of a nationwide driver shortage there has been no better time for more women to take the wheel and choose a career on the open road.
Culina Group won national recognition recently in the Microlise Driver of the Year Awards at the Ricoh Arena Coventry.
The Microlise Awards each year recognise the UK’s most talented HGV drivers, acknowledge the vital work they do, and the professionalism with which they carry out their work.
Being a professional driver is a taxing job. You have to face many obstacles throughout your day, both physical and mental. There’s traffic, deadlines, delays, stress. The last thing you have time to think about is exercise and eating healthy.
There is no better feeling than being on the open road when the sun is shining, with no traffic and you have your favourite songs on the stereo. Even when the weather is miserable and all you can see is tail lights up ahead, it can still be a good journey. As long as you have your music, everything will be alright.
The noble family dog is more than just a pet that you share your home with. They are a valued member of the family. You feed, care for and play with and in return, they give you loyalty, love, and admiration.
