November 2015 saw the launch of Bluestones Logistics – Derby, the fifth Bluestones Logistics partnership. Bluestones Logistics – Derby is headed by Director Tiffany Whitworth, and specialises in the provision of both temporary and permanent LGV drivers along with other associated personnel to the transport and distribution sectors.
Tiffany started her career as a planner in transport operations, dealing with both UK and international distribution. Throughout her transport career, Tiffany dealt with a large number of agencies to assist her in supplementing her driver workforce.
Whilst in transport operations, Tiffany was offered a role with one of the agencies she had previously employed, an opportunity she seized. Tiffany has dealt with on-site operations, blue chip clients and small to medium sized employers, specialising in the provision of long term, ad hoc and permanent LGV Drivers and associated workforce.
Tiffany decided in November 2015 that the time was right to start her own business. As a result of the comprehensive transport, logistics, and recruitment experience Tiffany has accumulated, she quickly earned the backing of both Bluestones Logistics and the Bluestones Investment Group.
Here at Bluestones Logistics Derby, we provide our client base with a quality compliant service cost-saving solution for their LGV and associated staffing requirements.
We manage the whole process from both a temporary and permanent perspective, and plan ahead to ensure an adequate headcount is achieved to enable clients to exceed their own KPIs.
Our aim is to manage and continually develop our own base of candidates, whilst looking after their best interests, as without our candidates, we would have no business.
