A Satisfied Client
"M & A Birmingham is a family owned and operated haulage business. Transport Management Solutions was recommended to us following an unsuccessful public inquiry appearance.
Ian Dodd, the Principle Consultant had an approach that was thorough, professional and supportive particularly in the case of my father who had to give evidence in English, which is not his first language. The confident way my father gave his evidence in the second inquiry, and new system Ian both developed for us and encouraged us to put in place, went a long way to us keeping our licence under special measures while we proved ourselves. We were happy to take the commissioners’ advice to use the support from a specialist consultant such as Mr Dodd.
For the last six months we have followed the simple system Ian showed us and we now meet the standards of the licence. Ian is always supportive, his solutions and recommendations are simple and do not take a lot of extra effort. We are now at the end of our period of special measures and are considering increasing the size of our fleet. We will continue to use TMS to ensure that we continue to meet the standards of the licence.
I have already recommended TMS to a friend and would do so again without hesitation"
