“If you think we don’t do it, just ask, because if we can’t do it today, WE WILL tomorrow”
Richard Hindle created R H logistics in 2003 for the very reason that he had terrible and often comical experiences at the hands of companies that today are R H Logistics’ competitors. Our team is reminded of this every day and my company strives to provide best of breed service each and every time we deliver. My initial expectations of what R H logistics might do back in 2003 lasted about 5 minutes. What quickly became clear is that every R H logistics customer is different, and their needs can be incredibly diverse. For that reason I divised a simple range of services to meet requirements from every possible user of the specialized transport sector. At R H logistics we go to extraordinary lengths to please our customers and deliver their requirements, however ordinary or out of the ordinary those requirements may be. R H logistics customers push the boundaries every day.
“My hardest task is to stop unnecessary expenditure especially from the DIRECTOR!!!”
I have been Accounts manager here at R H for since March 2006. My job role is to look after all aspects of Finance & Accounts from Credit Control to accounts payable to VAT and PAYE. I also deal with some HR and admin. If there’s a class on at the gym….I’m there!!
“One of my first attempts at giving transport instructions to a driver was to give him the address of a hospital in Isle Of Wight. We should have gone to Portsmouth!!! He rang asking me why he needed to get on a ferry – the driver in question was RICHARD HINDLE, glad he saw the funny side, my transport skills have improved a lot since then”
I have been employed with R H Logistics since 2007. My role within the company has evolved over the years and I am now responsible for our marketing campaign and Health & Safety. Weekends see me ensconced in my arts & crafts room at home creating all kinds of wonderful things!
“Big enough to cope, Small enough to care”
I started with RH as a driver in 2006. It wasn’t long before I was given a role in the office managing several key accounts. The day to day management of the drivers and their routes is another main roll of mine now. As office manager I run a tight ship, tom foolery is frowned upon and reprimanded severely. Poker player, amateur golfer, raconteur. I enjoy the finer things in life.
“I am known as the murderer of the planning board so im banned from touching it :-/”
My role is to be Richard’s right hand girl in the Philips Dept, as well as work alongside Paul, Tony and Ryan. I think I might need a company van soon for all the cakes that Mamma Frangiamore sends in. I don’t think there will be any complaints about that!
“This is a far cry from my last job which was protecting oil tankers from Somali Pirates on the Indian Ocean. If I’m not coordinating logistical movements for Fujifilm Sonosite or the Philips Service team then I’m on the golf course.”
New to the office team for 2016
The youngest in the whole RH family. Ryan has only been with us a short time but he is already impressing. Swears he’s a northerner but must have left his accent up in Barrow-in-Furness.
Another new member of the office team. Founder of the exclusive RH Camera Club. When he’s not chucking weights around in his garage he’s out photographing his natural habitat.
“I take great pride in looking after stock that comes into and goes out of the warehouse. I enjoy all of my work especially the banter between my colleagues. Terry, John, Rob and I are always looking for ways to streamline the way that we operate”
New to RH and learning fast. If you can’t see me in the warehouse then you’ll certainly hear me as I’m always whistling.
“I am definitely the best looking person working at RH”
“John has an extensive logistics and asset management background. “In my down time I’m in the terraces at the Emirates Stadium or spending time with family”
He’s probably one of the most cheerful members of the team. Don’t get him talking though or he won’t stop! If Spurs lose then he is not a happy chappy.
We know that Terry would be the first to volunteer if Santa ever sacked Buddy the Elf….he loves Christmas that much it will make you sick!
“Im the only employee who gets a tan whilst at work”
“Technical Transport Team My experience as a driver has given me the chance to take on an additional role; assisting customers with their marketing & exhibition needs. This includes regular European work and staying away from home many nights a week which has it’s plus sides. I went to Portugal this year! Head of a team of three in the Technical Support Team My Team can move any item into any site with ease using stair lifters, heavy weight skids and cranes. If there’s a Scotland run going then I’m there! I can never seem to escape the pull of the mother land. Hard to believe I’m almost 60!”
“Weekends are for wimps!!!”
“I enjoy working for RH Logistics, we are a happy team and I am always available with my van come rain or shine, whether its near or far. The transport team have my number on speed dial just in case there is any weekend work. Don’t call me if I’m at White Hart Lane though as my phone will be switched off!”
“I came from Technical Removals and now I’m part of the Technical Support team moving all the heavy-fragile equipment up and down the stairs. If I’m not moving equipment up and down the country then I’m checking on my various batches of chilli chutney or goat curry. I’m like a spice alchemist.”
“I have the cleanest van of the fleet due to my OCD ( Obsessively Clean Driver)”
“I am a full time driver for R H Logistics and have been employed since 2010. I have come from the army and do every thing with military precision. My van is so well kitted out for any eventuality that the other drivers refer to it as “The Camper Van”
“International Man Of Mystery”
“Experience, knowledge and professionalism personified. “On time, every time” is Al’s motto. There isn’t an inch of the British Isles that Al hasn’t covered in his career. He was once photographed making tea for the office team. Sadly, this photograph has since been lost and so the tea making incident remains a myth.”
“I’m by no means King of the road but I know where every cafe in England is”
“I have been with R H Logistics since the very beginning in 2003 and have watched it grow and grow. I must have gremlins in my phone as the driver’s app never appears to move the stock to my van for me! The office staff are always at hand to help out though. Voted Worst Joke Teller 2016 a title he is fighting his hardest to retain in 2017.”
“After 24 years as a posty I thought this job would be a doddle! Little did I know!”
“I started with RH in Feb 2013 after being Postman Pat for many years! I am now nicknamed Minty (from Eastenders) by my work colleagues. If you don’t see me coming you will certainly hear me….my motorbike is a beast! Although the job is very hectic at times I enjoy my work and all the guys at R H. Don’t ask me about my beloved Tottenham Hotspur as I need to get to my next delivery!”
“my nickname is “Belfast Bri”, not because i’m Irish but because I tend to miss my ferry and spend extra time there!”
“My role within R H Logistics is driver, I have been with R H Since 2012 I have meet lots of new customers and clients and feel welcomed by all the team. I’m also part of the ever growing RH bike gang. Nothing makes me happier than the purr of a well maintained motorcycle!”
“If I’m not driving then I’m listening to live music or tinkering with my motorbike or Jag.”
“Im just washing my van”
“If I’m not on the road then I’m in the yard washing my van. It’s that clean that you can eat your dinner off it, eat it quick though or I’ll have it!”
“It wasn’t me!”
“I’m easy going. If I was anymore laid back I’d be horizontal! I have a predilection for confectionery so I think Fruit Pastels shares have gone through the roof since I have started working in the transport industry.”
“my nickname is “The Ghost”
“In and out of the warehouse like a ghost. Efficient but silent. Paul is another member of the team with a military background. It shows not only because of his professionalism but because his van is as shiny as his parade boots used to be.”
“I love the M25!”
“Steve always has a smile on his face come rain or shine. Well, maybe not so much rain but definitely when the sun is shining. Steve loves the hot days so much, that he drives the only van without air conditioning. Never hear him complaining about this though! “My colleagues tell me that I bear a striking resemblance to Doctor Emmett Brown from Back To The Future.”
“Never a frown on this man’s face. Always happy. He may as well start a blog reviewing cafes from around the country because you’ll get a review and a photo of his latest fry up via facebook everyday anyway! “I love watching Chelsea and spending quality time with my boy.”
“The Mod Father”
“Dave helps out with the larger consignments where 2 men are required for the loading and unloading of assets. You’ll usually find him in the passenger seat boosting the driver’s morale with tales of his “monster carp catches” that no one ever saw or recorded photographically.”
Phil is a keen writer and is always ready to greet you with an anecdote.
Jaimie loves life on the open road. He’s installed a CB radio in his van and even has a “handle” so he can chat to lorry drivers.
Give him a delivery to Scotland and you’ve got yourself one happy driver, give him a trip to Hatfield and you best have a cup of tea waiting for him at the office when he gets back!
“Dan is another RH ghost. Sometimes he’s in the office checking the board for tomorrow’s routes and then he’s out again before anyone’s even looked up from their PC!”
“I was born ready”
“We suspect that Harry may have a fireman’s pole installed in his house because if we get any last minute requests from customers, he’s here ready to go before the phone hits the receiver!
Harry is fondly known as “The Captain” because of his nautical background.”
Martin is new to the team and is keeping his cards very close to his chest. He’s a very likable chap and should fit in really well.
Who needs a pallet truck when you’ve got Harry? This towering young man is fairly new to RHL. He’s got his eye on his dad’s position as a driver so Ricky Pearce better watch out!
Newest member of the team. We will add more once we get to know him. Watch this space!
Pete oversees the new warehouse / logistics hub in Preston. When he comes down t’ southern depot he always asks for a “brew”…….we don’t know what that is.
