Welcome to our June edition of The Extra Mile. We are all back in office following the extended Bank Holiday and the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. 🎉 We want to thank those of you that sacrificed family time and worked over the extended weekend. Remember, if you have any pics of your celebrations we would love to see them – pop them in an e-mail to

We have launched our tour of facilities for drivers, with the first feature being Baldock Services on the A1M. There are more reviews to come, and we will be looking to get you, the drivers, involved too if you visit any particularly good facilities and want to share your thoughts. Keep your eyes on our social media – they are featured on our Instagram Reels and our new Driver Require TikTok account. See below for our first review. 👇

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) are carrying out a countrywide campaign to improve driver facilities and currently have a petition on their website to be signed if you want to get involved and have your voice heard. The petition will be given to the government and is addressed to the Prime Minister. Our collective voice will be difficult to be ignored. Happy driving and see you all next month. 😊
📣Β  Another month and another issue of The Extra Mile. Each month we hope you enjoy your read. We like to bring you articles that interest you and maybe start conversations. If you have any ideas or requests for articles please email with the subject line Extra Mile.

We are delighted to feature one of our driver's Mark Buckingham's charity Walk The Wight for Mountbatten Isle of Wight in this issue of The Extra Mile.

"So Sunday morning myself and a few of my old mucker’s decided to do our bit for a well deserved charity Mountbatten Hospice, as in many ways it strikes a cord with everyone who has required end of life care, so we set ourselves a target which we hope to achieve by doing a little bimble across the Isle of Wight. So a beautiful start but early at 0600, we set ourselves a target of 10 hours so we could take in the views and the atmosphere of the event well, with a little sunburn and some tender feet we completed the course within 9 hours not the fastest, but not too bad either. So if you could help our quest to raise that little, to help with the Mountbatten hospice charity fund, your help would be very much appreciated by everyone concerned.", written by Mark Buckingham, Ocado, Andover
