What Makes a Good Haulage Company?

A good haulage company for any business is vital. Consumer demand is on the rise and having a haulage company you can trust in is incredibly important. So what should you look for when sourcing a new haulage company?

Flexibility is key. More and more companies are having to work in a more agile way than ever before, and it’s crucial that your haulage provider can quickly adapt to the needs of your business and your customers.

Do they have the experience? Have they worked with organisations similar to yours before? In addition, do they hold of the legal paperwork required for the sort of haulage you are seeking? Do your research and thoroughly investigate any potential haulage partners to ensure they can meet your needs.

Is it cost effective? It may seem obvious but it’s worth interrogating the numbers to make sure a haulage company can provide you with a cost effective solution to haulage. What are the costs and benefits to hauling internally or externally? Make sure you’ve crunched those numbers!

The Types of Interview Questions and how to Answer them?

Interview questions come in all shapes and sizes and are asked for very different reasons. So what questions should you expect in your next interview and how can you answer them effectively?

The classics. These questions are wide ranging, and often simply involve the interviewer wanting to find out more about you.

Career Goal questions. These questions relate your future career plans and how you see yourself developing, as interviewers try to establish if you’re a good fit for their company.

What about your character? Character led questions reveal what you’re capable of achieving and give employers a real indication of your drives.

Are you competent? Competency questions indicate your ability to complete a job well and will often require you to give examples to show what you’re capable of.

The curveball. Questions such as “If you were an animal, which one would you be?”  do still exist. They’re designed to see how you can think on your feet, so make sure you take your opportunity to stand out from the crowd!

Tackling Stress for Forklift Operators

Forklift jobs are by no means easy jobs. Even with safety measures improving and equipment becoming more sophisticated working in a fast pace warehouse environment can be stressful. So what are the major challenges to forklift work, and how can you combat workplace stress?

What’s the temperature? Often forklift drivers are required to work in changing temperatures, whether it’s outside, inside or in freezer environments. This can be both physically and mentally stressful – make sure you’ve put the right safeguards in place so forklift operators don’t feel the effects of changing temperatures too harshly.

Looming deadlines. Forklift operators usually work in fast paced environments with strict deadlines, meaning there’s a temptation to rush and potentially cause accidents. Managing workload and deadlines effectively is vital to avoid deadline stress.

Training needs. Training can sometimes feel like an afterthought or another stress for forklift operators. Keeping your training up to date must be a top priority – Find out more about our partner company, The Forklift Truck Training Centre, here –
