Having worked with Mike some years ago, I fully understand and believe in the ethos of Route4 Solutions and look forward to growing the business using the same visions and values which are so important to us all. Route4 Solutions has become a recognised name and brand in the East Midlands with regards to recruitment in the logistics sector and I am very much looking forward to replicating and expanding its service offering.”

Route4 Solutions managing director, Mike Harris, said: “I have known Ed professionally for a number of years now and when he became available, it seemed a natural progression to expand the business into a new area, with Ed at the helm.”
