RICO LOGISTICS LTD C/O ARENSON GROUP LTD,. ARENSON CENTRE, ARESON WAY DUNSTABLE LU5 5UL.
Tel: 01582 678200
:?:


"You can tell that Sam Sharma enjoys recounting the incident that prompted him to set up the company now known as Rico Logistics. At the time he was managing a branch for one of the national DIY retail chains, and the company used self-employed local contractors to do home deliveries. In walks Neil Kinnock, no less. He says he loves the product range but finds the delivery service terrible.
To cut a long story short, his comments prompted Sharma to join forces with a ollege friend and set up their own delivery service, initially using a pair of Ford Transits. That was twenty years ago. The company they created now has a work force of well over a thousand on call, and is on track to turning over £40 million this year"


Well they might not be that interested in owner drivers then :!:

No wonder this industry is in a mess, how the hell can anyone with a decent van proper insurances make a living at 44plm?

Well I will tell you .....................................

THEY CANT


But whilst we have numpties willing to do work at those prices it f**** it up for the rest of the sensible ones!

tony

we are on the same level mate, even if i was going down to london i wouldnt bother taking their small van work with me, unless it was only a few mins away from where im going, and by a few mins i mean a few LONDON mins.

Otherwise they know where they can go, get all the other depots ringing too, saying we will pay running mileage to us if you can do a london, LOL err i dont think so !

Which is why, i have concentrated on getting my own customers, and cant complain so far so good.
