The transport and logistics industry has had a turbulent time over the past few years. With Brexit, Covid-19 and IR35, it’s not difficult to appreciate why companies are struggling. With all of these issues creating driver shortages along with other issues, companies now need to adapt to the continuing evolving challenges.
As the UK haulage and freight industry tries to find its feet among the changes, Avail Logistics platform and App makes life much simpler for hauliers and drivers alike.
The platform is exactly what the industry needs and is revolutionising the transport industry. Avail Logistics platform connects operators to HGV drivers directly through the Avail – Driver App all from a smartphone. It’s a modern way of working that makes it easier for drivers to find well-paid work, while helping operators to save money on agency fees. With the HGV driver shortage set to worsen over the coming months, potentially affecting Christmas 2021, this is essential to getting more drivers on board and out on the road.
The Avail Logistics app is easy to use and is trusted by over 8000 drivers across the UK. Operators pay a flat fee for a driver per day and can specify the rates they want to pay, which goes to the driver. Avail Logistics is not only making the process of finding work and hiring drivers easier, but it’s also striving to improve conditions and pay for drivers. With increased job satisfaction, it’s hoped that there will be increased driver reliability and retention – which is certainly needed.
With Avail Logistics, drivers and operators can be reassured that the platform is fully compliant with IR35 legislation with drivers on PAYE. This will minimise disruption for businesses, meaning they won’t face penalties or fines and it will simplify paperwork for drivers too.
Avail Logistics drivers can choose which jobs they want to do at the touch of a button, once they have completed their profile and they can be sure they’re in safe hands as every driver is insured. Operators also have the reassurance that driver tachograph numbers and licences are checked.
