Gregory Distribution Axes 100 Jobs

GREGORY Distribution has announced 100 job losses across its operation due to ‘difficulties’ faced by its customers brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Announcing the job cuts, MD Angela Butler said: ‘Some areas will remain significantly impacted throughout the lockdown and beyond, due to Covid-19 on the wider economy.
‘Unfortunately, it has been necessary to review staff levels within the areas of the business that have declined as a result of difficulties faced by our customers, but we have worked very hard to limit the impact on our people and we are now looking at the possibility of up to 100 redundancies spread across a number of locations.’
The company, which is one of the largest privately owned hauliers in the UK, is a member of both Palletline and Palletways and employs 2,700 staff, operating from six depots in the south of England and is part of a group that includes Hayton Coulthard Transport and ARR Craib Transport.
