Being a driver for Allied Express is more than just operating a vehicle and carrying freight, it's about becoming part of the customers' supply chain and treating their customers like they were ours.
That's what being an Allied driver is about - you are a transport professional in charge of a small business on wheels, and how successful you are or will become depends on how motivated you are to run that business.
As an Allied driver you are well-presented, courteous, efficient and adept at dealing with people of all types in a patient, professional manner that reflects well on both our business and yourself. You have a good knowledge of the city and suburbs and will have a good driving record.
When you join us, you'll be part of a workplace 'family' of like-minded people working in a safe, friendly environment and with senior management that wants to look after you.
Although we are currently Australia's largest, independently owned express freight and courier company, we started out as a small, local delivery business with the same dreams and obstacles as anyone.
We know the challenges an owner-driver faces and what it takes to get ahead and we're always looking for ways to make the job of our drivers easier and more rewarding.
Allied provides access to fuel savings via a Mobil fuel card. We guarantee minimum hours of work and pay an attractive, better than industry rate. We also provide training and on-going support for less experienced drivers or those who are just starting out in the industry. As an Allied driver you are issued basic uniforms and we make available a range of additional garments at manufacturer's cost.
In addition to courier work, there are opportunities to move into permanent, set delivery runs, where your services are contracted full-time by one of our larger clients.
We have some of the biggest names in their respective industries that keep our owner-driver fleet busy, and profitable, by employing part of that fleet as their own transport department.
It's an area of business in which Allied is particularly strong, and the work is offered to drivers who display 'the right stuff' in terms of our level and quality of customer service.
We also have an active Social Club that is particularly family-focussed, and events are organised on a regular basis for drivers and staff alike.
We are keen supporters of the NRL and tickets to games are often awarded to drivers as an additional 'thank you' for extra effort.
If Allied Express sounds like the sort of place you'd like work at and has the kind of people you'd like to work with, contact our Driver Training section on 13 13 73 for more information or to arrange an interview.
