Fleet CV

Ian Parris, transport and resources manager, West Anglia Insulation

  • How many vehicles are on your fleet?
    We currently have 22 cars, 72 commercial vehicles and three 7.5-tonne trucks.

  • How long have you been in the industry?
    I have been transport manager since the start of the year when I was moved into the post to replace an outside agency that was unable to cope with the size and demands of our fleet.

  • Are you following a career path?
    No – I joined the company six years ago as contracts supervisor and have had several positions within the same organisation.

  • What is the first thing you do when you arrive at work?
    I immediately put on the kettle, start up my computer and check through my emails.

  • Is it a 9-5 job?
    My job should be 8am to 5pm, but I arrive at about 6.20am and stay until after 6pm. I need to do these hours because I also manage the company’s plant and our plant engineers, ID badges, company mobile phones, material orders, warehouse, storeman and delivery driver.
