Training

Diamond Logistics

Our franchise training is a comprehensive programme of learning and development. From the initial two-day training course, franchisees will discover what it is like to build and run their own logistics company – from sales and business development to managing your operations.

Regular depot site visits and network meets give a great opportunity to enhance a franchisee’s learning including sales, marketing and operations.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

You will take over and be responsible for a geographical postcode. You will have an ambition for building your depot in your local area and passion for delivering excellent local client service.

The first half of the day will be managing your exceptions and dealing with customer service queries. The second half of the morning will be reserved for sales and business development and building your business locally. The afternoon is for collections from your clients and businesses.

As you grow your business you will look to bring on owner-drivers to manage and build your collections for you.
