HGV Jobs in the East

The East is home to the UK’s largest container port, which handles 40% of the UK’s containerised freight. It’s also home to Stansted Airport, which handles around 211,00 tonnes of air cargo per year. These statistics show why the East is a hot spot for HGV Driving roles, and the ideal starting point for any HGV Driver’s job search.

east of englandAbout the East

The East of England is made up of the six counties of Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Essex is the county with the highest population in the region.

With the Southern part of the region on the London commuter belt, and major roads servicing these areas including the M1, M11 London to Cambridge, M25 through Essex, A1 London to Peterborough, A5, A11, A12 London to Great Yarmouth, A14, A47 and the A120 Harwich to Stansted, it’s easy to see why the East of England presents such a great opportunity to those embarking on a HGV driving career.

The Port of Felixstowe is the UK’s largest container port, handling over 40% of all containerised trade for Great Britain. This mammoth port, which has it’s own police, fire, and ambulance services, started as the UK’s first ever container terminal back in 1967. The port has 29 ship-to-shore gantry cranes, and can accommodate the world’s most modern and largest vessels, including the Maersk Triple E Class which can accommodate 18,000 containers (TEUs.) The port forms part of the Haven Ports Group, which also includes the fishing port of Ipswich and the ferry terminal of Harwich International Port. There are also other traditional fishing ports in the East of England, including Tilbury Docks and King’s Lynn Docks.

Adding further to the well-connected transport links of the East of England are it’s two well-known international airports, Stansted Airport and Luton Airport. In 2013, Stansted alone handled over 211,000 tonnes of freight and 17.8 million passengers. It’s main links are with Spain, Italy and Eire.

The Region’s transport links and particularly its ports, make it an ideal home for the prestigious Headquarters of some of the world’s most recognisable brands. All of the companies below have headquarters premises in the East of England.

  • T Mobile
  • Nestle
  • Murco Petroleum
  • Total Oil
  • Pitney Bowes
  • Polaroid
  • Epson UK
  • Veolia
  • Easyjet
  • Monarch airlines
  • Vauxhall vans plant
  • Fujifilm

The region is also home to the former Big Brother studios at Elstree and also to the Lakeside shopping complex, which is one of the largest in Europe at over 2,600,000 square feet of retail space on a 200 acre site.

Types of HGV jobs available in the East

The wide variation of activities which make up the economy in the East of England lend themselves very well to HGV driving jobs.

Many retailers have large warehouses in the area on account of the areas’ retail developments such as Bluewater and Lakeside. These operations require HGV drivers to move incoming product from the docks and airports to the retailers’ warehouses in articulated vehicles, where it is labeled and packaged and sent to major distribution hubs as part of a large load, usually a C+E vehicle. The hub will take goods in from a variety of retailers, condense the loads down into smaller, more eco-friendly vehicles (such as a Category C vehicle) and then send out deliveries to the retail development.

The activities at the docks require Category C+E drivers to collect containers from the dockyards and transport them all over the country. Containers may be moved by road to any of the UK’s ports or airports to complete their onward journey, or may be emptied at major warehouses so that the products can be distributed all over the UK. Likewise, container vessels take products produced in the UK by sea to countries all over the world. This can include anything from electronics and machine parts, to foodstuffs and clothing, even vans and cars! None of this can be done without the hard work and dedication of C+E drivers.

Fresh produce arrives daily into the East of England’s airports and docks, on large container ships, which need to find their way to the nation’s supermarkets. That’s why you’ll find a large number of major HGV driving roles for major supermarket chains in this part of the country.

The East of England is made up of a lot of low-lying, flat land, which lends itself well to farming activities. For this reason Category C drivers can find themselves work moving produce or livestock. For example, a recent vacancy filled by an Easy As HGV driver was for a Category C driver to move bulk loads of grain. The role involved collecting grain from several Farms throughout the East of England, and taking the grain to a central storage facility. There are examples of this type of agricultural driving activity all over the region.

What sort of salary can I expect in the East?
