Our drivers are generally the only face to face interaction we have with our customers on a daily basis.
A critical link to the relationship, Browns Distribution drivers are brand ambassadors who are recognised for their skill and value they bring to the whole operation.
TRAINING & WELFARE
With a national driver shortage, the need for high quality loyal drivers has never been more prevalent. Browns Distribution aims to be a business that drivers seek to work for based on reputation and job satisfaction, which is why we have taken a fresh approach to recruitment, training and retention.
Read about our business ethos and values.
Often driver management is absorbed directly into the operations team and for routing and activity this is no different at Browns Distribution.
Welfare and discipline is however often overlooked by pressing matters such as fulfilling customer demand.
WE DO IT DIFFERENTLY
We have a dedicated senior leader to specifically focus on our drivers and their needs! His role is to cater for the welfare, discipline and training requirements of all Browns Distribution drivers providing a link between the operations team and the rest of the business. The approach has been a huge success and welcomed by new and existing members of the team.

The fleet is modern and follows a replacement plan which means regular new trucks and trailers and we have clean canteen facilities and a new truck wash! All these things make a difference, including the annual Christmas party, which so far, has been expenses paid!
In short, Browns Distribution is a company that expects high performance and tries hard to give back to its employees in return."
