In the 4 years that we have been working with Global FLT we have never been let down and all of my staff are trained to a high standard.

All trainers that attend site are always professional and work hard with the team to get them through their training safely and efficiently.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ken & Kay or any of the team at Global FLT.
