Westmead Logistics Provides Dedicated Service

NORWICH, UK--(Marketwire - Nov 7, 2011) - Westmead Logistics is constantly on the lookout for ways in which to improve the capacity and performance of the business. In the last financial year, for example, the company has invested R30-40 million in new vehicles. The business also employs the help of technology firm Net Star Tracking to keep Westmead on track -- literally.

"The IT systems that Net Star puts into place that give us the tools to be able to do our jobs better," says Rajan. "We have real time tracking on our vehicles so that we can determine exactly where those vehicles are at any given point." The company also uses the software to notify clients as to where their cargo is located.

Westmead Logistics acknowledges the importance of developing its employees to ensure that they are know all they need to know in order to carry out their duties skilfully, safely and effectively. All drivers complete an advanced driving course, while the company also provides dangerous goods handling training for those that need it. The business also keeps employees well-informed on the issues of first aid and health and safety. Westmead Logistics welcomes new talent from the local community, offering technical and workshop apprenticeships to those who have the skills and drive to become valued members of the company.
