Warehouse to Wheels

From FLT to LGV 

Armstrong Logistics launched its ‘Warehouse to Wheels’ scheme in January 2016 in a bid to encourage its existing warehousing staff to pursue a career as Heavy Goods Vehicle Drivers. 

For Armstrong Logistics it is an obvious place to look within our existing team, particularly our warehousing department.
The offer of training and a guaranteed job driving LGV 1 vehicles makes It is a fantastic opportunity to not only progress existing staff’s careers, but to take them in an entirely new direction. This has been an attractive proposition and we have already had many successes.

Armstrong logistics training Centre at Magna Park Lutterworth has a full range of training facilities including a reversing and maneuvering area. Module 4 demonstration trolley and DVSA qualified instructors.

“This course is a fantastic opportunity to not only progress my career but to take it in an entirely new direction. I hadn’t really considered a career as a driver, but with the support of Armstrong Logistics training scheme I am now a fully qualified LGV 1 driver."
