Many people from different industries are wondering about the effect the Olympics will have on their business. For the hotel and food business as well as the tourism business, trade will be booming, particularly in and around London; but what will the Olympics mean for HGV logistics and HGV training?
The Olympics will undoubtedly put a massive strain on HGV drivers and companies that rely on HGVs to get their products from A to B. The unemployed or people looking for a new career path could benefit from this, as it means companies will need to employ more people to deal with the demand, and more people will be eligible for HGV training courses that the LGV Training Company have to offer.
Another thing that HGV drivers will have to battle with this summer, is the disruption and congestion on our roads. The volume of traffic on the motorways and in London itself is sure to increase with all the people pouring into our Capital City to witness the Olympic Games; not to mention the rolling closures throughout the country, as the Olympic torch makes its way across the length and breadth of the country.
Without efficient HGV logistics available in and around London the Olympic Games would not be a success. Without HGV’s to support businesses directly associated with the Olympics, they would not be able to function. You can only imagine the vast amount of food and drink that will be bought and consumed by the public during the Olympics, as well as the huge amount of merchandise that people will buy. Think how many HGVs will be needed to transport all those products into London.
There’s no doubt everyone in the HGV business is going to have a tough couple of months working hard to ensure all their businesses continue to function efficiently. It is also clear that HGV logistics will play a vital part in the success of the Olympic Games.
