The Drivers

We currently have around 40 drivers and operators able to carry out various specialist haulage and movements as well as a range of tankering and specialist drainage operations.


At present SP Holding are undertaking a full development programme for our drivers.  This is being undertaken in conjunction with The Shrewsbury College of Arts and Technology (SCAT) and will lead to a nationally recognised NVQ qualification in road haulage. This programme is being undertaken by a number of large nationally recognised transport companies and we have shown our commitment to be at the forefront of this type of employee training and improvement.

The formal training is supported by an ongoing 'Tool Box Talk' programme that covers a wide range of subjects that both the Company and our customers, including Severn Trent Water, wish to either reinforce or change existing processes and procedures.

A wide range of topics are required to be covered in the skills of operatives within the Company as can be witnessed by the extensive range of topics covered within the training matrix below.

Health & Safety

When you're employing the services of a transport company, whether for haulage services or for servicing on your own fleet of vehicles, you want to know that you can trust them to maintain a safe working environment.

All of our staff, for the safety of themselves and those around them, have to adhere to all relevant health & safety regulations and receive regular training on any new measures.
