“I have known Mike Harris, the MD of Route4 Solutions in various capacities for the last 15 years. When he founded Route4Solutions I had no hesitation in using him to supply relief drivers. He has helped me recruit over 70 drivers for the Newark distribution centre of a large electrical business. He provides knowledge, experience and the customer service is second to none. He is totally reliable, and I know that I can call him anytime 24/7, 365 days a year. No matter what the time of day, Route4Solutions are responsive and proactive. Above all, they send me the right driver for the job – they don’t just put a bum on a seat – they really do offer a 24 hour temporary driver solution.”

“The Prolog fleet of vans and HGV lorries has doubled in size over the last two years from 10 to 20 vehicles. We have found that the daily flexibility of sourcing temporary drivers through Route4Solutions has enabled us to operate cost effectively and efficiently with only five drivers employed on a permanent basis. Route4Solutions made time to understand how our business operates and also support me by organising and planning delivery routes and schedules. They are genuinely available 24/7, 365days a year – I know, because I’ve called them at all hours and have never yet been let down. They always make sure there is a relief driver available to us and have provided us with the ability to call in relief drivers even as late as 8pm.”
Brian Thompson, Transport Manager, Prolog
“I started working for Route4 Solutions 2014. Initially I worked for one of their clients based in Newark UK and I was given as many days of work as I requested. After a year, I was transferred to another client and have been content working for them continuously over the last two years.
Mike Harris is my contact at Route4 and I find that he always sticks up for me and tries his best to find me as much work as he can even, in the most difficult times of the year, when perhaps work is not so plentiful.
I never encountered any kind of trouble or problem with the company. Route4 is a very strong and upright company. Mike has become a good friend. As a stranger in a new country I found that Mike was always willing to help me when I was in need of good advice, a kind word or some guidance, even when this has not been work related. Whilst working at Route4 I have felt welcomed and appreciated and I to hope to enjoy the same working relationship going forward.”

“I worked with Route4 Solutions for about 2 years and in this time I can honestly say that I had no issues with them at all. The Route4 Solutions team is the best team that I have worked with in the past 5 years of me being a HGV driver. They are very approachable and very flexible in terms of trying to place you with the right job depending on your circumstances.
Adrian Spoiala, Driver,
“I have worked with Route4 Solutions for just over a year now and I would like to say that I really appreciate working for them. From day one they have always listened to my personal circumstances and always tried to provide me with good quality jobs. Unlike some agencies out there, R4 always pay me on time and for that I am very grateful. I look forward to continuing my working relationship with Route4 Solutions and hope to be employed for many more years to come.
Mark Foster, Driver,
“We employ three full time drivers and when they are absent through holidays or sickness, I know I can rely on Route4 Solutions to provide me with a relief driver at short notice. Although ours is not a regular contract, and can be quite adhoc and urgent, Route4 Solutions have shown that they are capable of supporting smaller logistics operations like ours that on occasion will still have the need for an agency driver. They have never failed to provide a friendly and responsive service whatever time of day or night I have called them.”
Brian Trigg, Director, Bridgeshire Packaging Limited
“The delivery of bagged aggregate requires the driver to be trained and inducted to a certain standard. Our business is also very seasonal. Using Route4 Solutions at our Castle Donington, Alrewas, and Husbands Bosworth sites has enabled us to flex our driver numbers according to workload and therefore operate more cost effectively and efficiently. Sourcing temporary drivers through Route4 Solutions means we have access to a pool of temporary drivers who whilst working for us receive training and gain an understanding of our operations and work culture. This allows us to cherry pick the best drivers when we have vacancies for a permanent driver, whilst still having access to a pool of drivers who are already familiar with the needs of our business.
