Speedy Freight opens in St Austell

Speedy Freight, the Eddie Stobart subsidiary that provides urgent transport, has opened a franchise branch in St Austell to serve Devon and Cornwall.

Kevin Girdler, business development manager for Cornwall and Plymouth at Speedy Freight, said: “South Devon and Cornwall are manufacturing hot spots and Speedy Freight’s services come into their own when unexpected issues arise.

“From delivering essential building materials and just-in-time parts to keep production lines running, to getting sensitive paperwork to offices throughout the UK,” Girdler added.

Speedy Freight is recruiting 40 owner drivers – mostly of vans and trucks up to 7.5 tonne, to its preferred driver group.
