I worked for this company and to be honest I would avoid this company at all cost. Management treat you like you are nothing, and they expect you to be on the road from 8 in the morning till 10 at night even although your only aloud to drive the van for a maximum of 10 hours pre-day as per amazon's rules. You pay £200 per week for the van and only work 3 days a week out of the 6 so your basically paying for the van and have small change for your self. When i left they are trying to say I owe them over £1000 for damage to the van that wasn't there when I handed the van back.Avoid these cowboys at all costs.
Pros
Self Employed
Cons
Long Hours, Poor Pay, Poor Management.

Fast Despatch Logistics is a one of the best multi drop delivery company in UK. I worked to their Manchester deport recently, and I felt so compatable with their working culture. The managers and coordinators were always friendly and helpful .The only reason which I left them was my children. They are still little and I had to sacrifice times for their activities.If anyone wish to work as a delivery driver, I highly recomend The Fast despatch Logistics Company.

An internationally recognised company, with worldwide reach, working in collaboration with Amazon, Fast Despatch is a good company to work for. The hours and wages are great. If you can drive a 3.5 t van, and in need of a job, Fast Despatch is the place to get one (A driving job I mean).
Pros
Great Hours

Absolutely appalling company to work for. Be very careful when you leave they will deduct money for vehicle damage even if it wasn't damaged. I would not recommend working for them. There are many other driving jobs out there. Stay clear of this lot

I have been working for this company for 6 months and they have fulfilled on there promises. There management is superb and the head office addminstraion team is just as good regarding invoice queries. They always given me work and extra wheen asked, depending they have that day. The management always look after your safety at each branch. I've been given work from the North to the South, that's how big they are.Providing you follow the rules and don't cut corners you get paid exceptionally well. Safety is always no. 1 concern for FDT, and to make you money.HIGHLY recommended working for these!
Pros
Pay. Health and safety. Great management. Fun work place.
Cons
When delivering some customers feedback may be inaccurate, leading to penalties.

From my experience of working with FDL for some time now, I’m very happy to be a part of this company as they are a supportive and inclusive company that pays well for the work that is carried out. I’ve not had any problems with the company thus far and if any work queries come up during the working day then they are always on hand to help resolve any issues immediately due to the quick communications networks they work through with their employees. All in all, I would recommend working with FDL as the recruitment and training processes are efficient and straight forward as well as the working environment being a positive place to work. Proud to be a part of this company.
Pros
Flexible days
Cons
Must prepare for all weather
