RHCV supports HGV training college

RH Commercial Vehicles (RHCV) has worked in partnership with South Essex College to construct two branded LGV lorries, designed to support students and the local community to enter a career in logistics.

The vehicles will be used to train LGV drivers from all walks of life, such as students on LGV apprenticeship programmes, those who are unemployed, or anyone who wants a change of career.

Located over three main sites, South Essex College offer a range of transport-based qualifications alongside a wealth of logistics support training to students of all ages, including undergraduates, adults and businesses.

Andy Cross, sales executive at RHCV, said: “With the current national shortage of drivers, these vehicles will impact, introduce and increase the number of qualified drivers into the logistics and transport industry.”

Mark Bentley, operations director of logistics at South Essex College, said: “Moving into LGV driver training is a significant step in the development of our logistics provision. The logistics department will not only support individual learners but will also help local businesses grow their operation in the future.”

RHCV has a successful track-record of selling, leasing, servicing, and repairing heavy (HGV) and light commercial (LCV) vehicles across the East Midlands for over four decades and employs over 140 staff.
