Due to recent expansion Newell & Wright have several day and night vacancies for HGV1 Class 1 drivers based in the Sheffield region to operate from our central location.
We employ over 300 personnel, many of whom have remained with the company as we have expanded. We can attribute our growth and success to delighting our customers, old and new, with the value for money and excellent all round services that we provide.
As part of our constant modernisation program of keeping our container haulage fleet up to date with the latest transportation technology we are pleased to present eight new trucks for 2017. This latest delivery includes 6 MAN and 2 Scania Trucks which are ideally suited for UK wide container haulage applications.
The new MAN TGX - the ideal solution for container haulage transport with the latest generation of the MAN Tip Matic Fleet and the SmartShifting strategy, the MAN TGX reaches its destination even more quickly and efficiently. The complete design upgrade of the exterior and interior creates a clear visual contrast between workspace and living area. The new Scania R-series has a unique combination of luxury inside and out, with the toughness to master all conditions. Driving a new generation Scania makes a statement of style, pride and absolute capability. Contact Newell & Wright Group on 01142 423367 and speak to one of the team.

2017 has already seen new investments again in trucks and container loading and unloading equipment. The Rail Port provides direct access allowing containers to move direct from the Port of Felixstowe right into the heart of South Yorkshire in Rotherham. Felixstowe is one of the busiest ports in Europe and the largest container port in the UK with around 4 million twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) containers being handled each year. This is an increase of around 20% on 2010 and the demand is increasing all of the time.
To meet the growing demand, we are looking to continue our expansion plans at the rail port bringing investment and employment to the region. The rail port is perfectly place in an industrial location very close to the M1, M18 and also the A1 for container haulage around the UK, especially the North of England.

European Shipping Week took place in Brussels, Belgium during March with attendees from across the container shipping and haulage industries. A primary focus of the event was to place the correct packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTUs) under the spotlight. In addition, safety and poor work practices were agenda items for discussion. Leading figures from International Maritime Organization (IMO) and from the European Commission’s DG MOVE, which is the directorate responsible for freight transport safety within the EU, met with industry leaders.
An analysis of insurance claims records suggests that 65% of damage to cargo come as a direct result of badly packed, blocked or unsecured cargo inside freight containers. Industry representatives also stated that a high level of prevention could take place to avoid incidents across land, road, rail and at sea. A key factor is the safety of workers, especially when the loading or unloading process is taking place. Safe industry packing and securing guidance must be disseminated and followed.

We have just taken delivery of our latest addition to our reach stacker pool with a Kalmar K Motion. This is a significant investment for the start of 2017 and one of many that we will be implementing during the year. The volume of shipping containers we are now handling is almost double from 12 months ago as our new rail port investment gains ground in the market. Our latest investment is already commissioned and in use right now.
The Gloria family of reach stackers is the next generation of productivity and performance. It elevates uptime, ergonomics and safety, while reducing fuel consumption and running costs. Kalmar K-Motion is yet another giant leap for the environment and for lifetime value, with huge savings every day. Kalmar K-Motion gives you a substantial reduction in fuel consumption without compromising drive and lift power. Contact Newell & Wright Group on 01142 423367 and speak to one of the team.
