We remain committed to maintaining our own fleet of more than 100 trucks and 120 drivers as we believe this, along with developing strong and long-lasting relationships with third-party logistics providers, to be the best way to maintain the very highest levels of health and safety provision and customer service levels, especially timely when there is such pressure in the UK and Europe in terms of sub-contract HGV transport availability.'
