A review of Allied Bakeries Ltd by Lawful Driver written on Wednesday 10th of February 2021
Only use you when it suits them to get them out of the problems. New driver expected to go out on New Routes with no prior training. Some of the drop off places are way out in the countryside with no room for lorry to be driven safely. When you do Drive To The Laws Of The Land, like taking the proper driving and WTD breaks, you end up taking longer to complete the route. Their own drivers are salary based. So does not matter if route takes them 6 hrs or 10 hrs to complete they still get set wages. So they cut every corner they can to get the route completed the fastest to finish and go home. So they actually work during Break Periods on Digi Tacho. Also disobeying health and safety procedures to shave time off their routes. So me as an new driver I did everything as per the book. Thus my route would take 10 hrs (with actually taking the proper breaks) and driving to the Speed Limits. But their drivers would do in 7-8 hrs by breaking every law going, including driving at 40mph+ in built up areas, and also they knew the routes like the back of their hands with doing them for years. So it looked bad on me taking 10 hrs, so in their Shut Eyes I Wasnt Up To Speed. I therefore was not asked to work their again, Until They Required A Driver, Any Driver when they were desperately short to get the deliveries completed. The DVSA should investigate the companies Digital Tacho Records as their drivers practices are bordering on Dangerous..
