Freight transportation provider XPO, has surpassed its goal of hiring 1,000 HGV drivers in the UK and Ireland in 2022.
XPO is on track to onboard more than 20% more UK drivers this year than the previous year, increasing its workforce by hundreds of net new drivers. This aligns with the company’s goal of expanding its driver base while reducing the use of subcontract drivers.
The company is continuing to invest in talent for information technology, distribution operations, administration, management, and sales and service roles.
Lynn Brown, Human Resources Director at XPO said: “Our driver boot camps and apprenticeship scheme are examples of channels for driver development that leverage our scale. Individuals who have an interest in becoming licensed HGV drivers can train with us while they work in other roles. These schemes bolster our transport capacity available to customers while helping employees pursue a new career.”
