ACS&T’s transport teams are working across 2 sites - Seamer, predominantly supporting none warehouse customers, and Wolverhampton, who supports both Warehouse and none warehouse customers.

These 2 transport teams are led by our Head of Transport Dave Boyle who joined the team early 2021 as Regional Transport Manager of the North. January this year Dave was promoted to Head of Transport, and the growth and structure he has put in place has been great.

Below Dave talks a little about what he has been working on and how this has been achieved.

‘A lot has changed over the last 14 months since I joined ACS&T logistics as Regional Transport Manager, we have seen many changes in the team where I have gone from being the new colleague to the colleague with the 3 longest service in the department and promotion to Head of Transport.

As a department, we have gone through big changes in terms of recruitment, engagement and making our culture fun, and the place people want to join, which is down to the hard work of my team and them fully embracing the changes I wanted to make. These changes are being put in place to ensure the business can grow and be successful and the team understood this and have joined me on the journey.

There is a calm about the transport team now instead of the chaos that was the daily life of the team before.

We have celebrated our wins with the team by holding site BBQ’s, we have had quizzes and competitions for everyone to get involved in, and they now have a say in the future of the department.

Our survey results have improved and shows we are moving in the right direction, but we still have some work to do to get it where we all would like to be.

This engagement and understanding of the plan have helped with business growth and the department to become more profitable. My team are going the extra mile as they now feel valued and employee engagement has greatly improved.

We have increased our profitability by expanding our network, working with our existing customers, and bringing on board new customers.

Our driver population has grown 69% which has been down to the hard work in changing the culture and the drivers speaking about the business to their fellow friends and drivers.

The whole team has pulled together to embrace the changes we needed to make and move in the right direction which is something my team and I are proud of.’

ACS&T may not be the biggest Cold Chain, but we are small enough to care and big enough to grow alongside you. Our team of dedicated and knowledgeable transport planners can support you with your daily pain points, and we are here to grow with your business.

We now run Temperature controlled artic trailers, temperature controlled 18tonne rigids and a temperature-controlled sprinter van, allowing us to support more customers over a greater network of needs.

This new direction, investment, increased employee engagement and the feeling of being part of something has helped ACS&T to grow their transport offering to old and new customers.
