A Marketing Plan For A Business Operating In The LGV Driver Agency Sector (2007)

Marketing Plan LGV Driver Agency Sector Dissertation – The Logistics industry is experiencing consistent growth in particular freight moved by road and there is an ever increasing demand for professionally qualified LGV Drivers. However, with an inherent shortage of drivers in the UK the project seeks to develop a marketing strategy for an LGV Driver Agency based in the South East of England, which can be used by a new start up or one that is already in business.

Through an external analysis of the industry and review of the marketing practises the project will determine what drivers and employers require from an agency. It will also carry out an analysis to determine the differentiating factors amongst the competitors. Coupled with these findings a detailed understanding of the target market will lead to the development of a successful marketing strategy. The project concludes that there is potential for an agency to easily differentiate itself from the competitors through the range of services offered and a greater understanding of the target market.

Services such as the implementation of training plans or the simplification of legislations will attract drivers to the agency. The project also found that continual professional development was ranked high amongst drivers, and an agency with the ability to fulfil these requirements will not only retain its drives but also attract employers who require competent drivers for their business.
