May 2013 saw Abbie join KHT, and she has just celebrated her 10th anniversary. Abbie started as an administration assistant, scanning PODs and booking deliveries. Hearing how much she enjoyed listening to her colleagues in the traffic office, she asked to get more involved in this exciting but challenging work. Abbie was given the opportunity to be responsible for the collection board and the bookings email. As Abbie thrived on new challenges her confidence built enough for the next natural progression which was the TPN traffic desk. Once again Abbie blossomed in this busy and sometimes stressful role but eventually worked up to the position of Network Manager.
Abbie’s favourite part of the job is getting involved as much as she can (she can often be seen tootling around Castleford in a van when required) and having such a good relationship with everyone, oh and also food. In her spare time Abbie enjoys spending time with her daughter Ava and catching up with friends at the weekend.
Also working on the TPN administration and support side is Hannah, who joined the company in 2016. Hannahs daily duties include planning all the daily collections, liaising with the drivers and ensuring credit revenue is up to date. Hannahs favourite part of her job is planning the collections, she says its like a jigsaw puzzle, and when it all comes together it is very satisfying. When not at work Hannah is a massive Greys Anatomy fan, she also enjoys spending time with her dogs Lilly, Oscar and Gino – who occasionally make an appearance in the office.
Anthony joined the company in the summer of 2022 as part of the Pallet Network team, new to logistics but bringing years of experience from other busy office environments.
