NFRN members are being asked to support a recruitment drive by Smiths News and Menzies in a bid to alleviate the shortage of delivery drivers.
Both wholesalers have produced recruitment posters which we would like members to display in-store or in a suitable place in your community to attract new contractors.
NFRN head of news Brian Murphy said: “This national driver shortage is expected to continue until at least Christmas, potentially becoming more acute as the need for delivery drivers increases.
“The importance in maintaining the seven-day distribution of newspapers is vital, and the NFRN is happy to again play its part in supporting the smooth continuation of the supply chain and again prove its resilience to whatever pressures it faces.
“Placing the posters in-store or in local communities will raise awareness of the urgent need for more delivery drivers, and I hope members are able to support this recruitment campaign.”
