Advanced Supply Chain - Temp to Perm Case Study
Advanced Supply Chain offers a complete end-to-end supply chain service, from source to shelf, covering all aspects of supply chain management, global logistics, fulfilment and value-added services.
Already using the platform to secure on-demand contractors, the Advanced supply chain group were keen to start using the Connected2 platform to build up their employed driver workforce too at some key sites for them.
Andy Heart, Transport Manager for the North wanted to bring in a full-time employed driver into the team to operate from their site in Oldham. Historically this has been a challenging site to recruit for and the ability to Andy and his team to work with the driver, while they familiarise themselves with the work and the team for drivers to assess the day to day activities was a perfect fit for both sides.

Connected2 does not have a time limit on when a contract driver can be offered a full-time contract with a company. This position was advertised as a temp to perm position on the Connected2 platform and Gareth was invited to an assessment through the Connected2 platform.
Gareth’s main focus is on shunting trips between Oldham and Bradford. Andy and his team in Bradford were able to send out shifts through the Connected2 platform directly to Gareth. From his app, Gareth was able to accept these shifts and submit his hours and any receipts directly to the transport office - helping everyone to work closely, building a strong working relationship from the start.
After working together for 6 weeks Andy and his team felt comfortable with offering Gareth a full-time position and Gareth knows the work, the team and what is required day-to-day. There have been no additional transfer fees incurred.
What They Said
“We’ve had absolutely no issues with Gareth since he has come in with us. He’s integrated himself very well as part of the team in Oldham and even has come up with his own ideas of how to improve things here. Gareth suggested that starting an extra hour earlier would help avoid traffic and he would be able to fit at least another shunt in a day. We have since implemented this, he’s been completely right! We have had an increase in productivity. Running this through the Connected2 platform has made it straight forward as we are able to post the shifts out to him and receive confirmation once he has accepted them. We have also been running through a couple of other lads through your platform and they have been very good!” - Andy Hart - Transport Manager
“For me as a driver I work remotely a lot and having the Connected2 app has made things a lot easier for me. I am able to accept my shifts and complete my timesheets all from the app with no trouble. I prefer just to crack on with my work with minimal interruption and the app allows me to do that. I find working with Advanced Supply Chain good and Andy is great to deal with.” - Gareth Woolley - Driver
