Take us through a typical day at Bailey for you…
Always an early riser – arriving at 5.00am to work is the norm, as I’m keen to get out on the road before traffic builds up. Getting in early also helps with rota for the day, loading the lorry is all part of the route planning. When I have completed deliveries, I set out orders for following the day making sure goods are ready for dispatch and checking who I am meeting the next day, always good to put a name to a face!
