ORANGE SURVEY SEES CONTINUATION OF PURPLE PATCH

ORANGE SURVEY SEES CONTINUATION OF PURPLE PATCH
 
Driver Hires early December turnover has reached levels not seen Christmas 2007. Its excellent performance was helped by Manic Monday and the cold snap. 
 
Manic Monday was the peak day for buying online, says Driver Hires Chief Executive, Chris Chidley, explaining the reasons behind his companys purple patch. All those orders were delivered by parcel delivery companies. Clearly they turned to us to help them meet increased demand. But its not just the retail sector thats helped us achieve this excellent performance. Its broad-based with good levels of demand coming from a number of industry sectors.
 
And Driver Hires run could set to continue if the results of a survey by Orange prove correct. According to respondents, mainly SMEs, 74% of them are planning to recruit in 2010 and move to a more flexible workforce, both factors which could help recruitment companies such as Driver Hire.
 
In addition, news reports are suggesting that the bad weather earlier this month has resulted in a backlog of 4m undelivered parcels across the country, with another 4m new parcels going into the delivery system every day. Thats going to put additional pressure on parcel delivery companies, creating further opportunities for recruiters to supply labour to help clear the backlog.
 
Driver Hire has enjoyed an excellent twelve months trading, and I think theres plenty to be positive about, Chris Chidley continues. This performance is the result of our continued focus on what we do well:  customer service, industry knowledge, compliance and, of course, our round the clock service.
