Welcome to the team, Amanda!

Introducing Amanda, our latest Warehouse to Wheels recruit!

Amanda is the third person to sign on to the program, and she's already shown great progress and determination to get her Class 1 license.

Warehouse to Wheels - AmandaIt's only been 2 weeks since Amanda joined our team, but she's already passed her Theory and Hazard Perception tests, as well as her CPC Module 2! It won't be long until we see Amanda behind the wheel of our Class 1 vehicles.

We spoke with Amanda to find out more about her passion for driving.

  • "I'm going straight for my Class 1 license. I've been a delivery driver for the last 15 years, so I'm looking forward to moving onto bigger things and getting behind the wheel of the big trucks!"
  • "From an early age, I've always been interested in driving, and I love the idea of travelling the country and seeing new places from the cab of a Class 1 truck."

Since Amanda started with us, she's been out and about in the van delivering smaller shipments for our customers. Over the next few weeks, she'll move on to supporting our Class 2 fleet, assisting with local Palletline multidrop deliveries to learn the ropes.

Amanda added:

  • "I'm really enjoying things so far. Everyone's been really welcoming and friendly. I'm looking forward to taking the next steps."

We caught up with Driver Welfare & Training Manager, Mark Knapper, to discover why Amanda was selected for the program:

  • "Amanda really stood out to me as our next Warehouse to Wheels recruit because she was so persistent. She reached out to me on Whatsapp to ask if we had any opportunities, and she kept me in the loop at every stage of her training. Her attitude, determination and enthusiasm made her the perfect candidate for the role"

In just 3 months, Amanda is due to take her practical test, which means, she may be a fully licensed Class 1 driver for Browns by August 2022!

And that's a wrap! We'd like to finish off by saying welcome to the team, Amanda! We wish you the best of luck with your tests, and we can't wait to see you on the road repping Browns with your pass certificate in hand!
