Loadhog, Sheffield’s multi award-winning logistics innovator, has responded to the growing business from its Guardian Load Restraint System by appointing another sales representative to further boost sales of this advanced product. Sheffield-born Mark Tunnard, 26, is focused on new and ongoing Guardian sales in Northern England and Scotland. Guardian was developed by Loadhog to comply with recently updated HSE and DVSA safety legislation and guidelines regarding load restraint on curtain sided vehicles.
Immediately before joining Loadhog Mark, who has a business economics degree, was a metal broker dealing with various aerospace and power generation alloys from scrap procurement through to selling to end users. His work involved metallurgy, financial management and nickel hedging on the London Metal Exchange. Mark said: “I am keen to drive up brand and product awareness and increase sales in line with and above forecasts, onward to global markets in the future.
“It was Loadhog’s organisation, culture and ground floor opportunity which attracted me to the company. The encouraging and focused environment is testament to each individual’s presence in the company. I believe that a big part of this is the company’s employee ownership policy resulting in ‘can do’ people.” The Guardian Load Restraint bridges the gap between non-compliant roof straps and time consuming ratchet straps on curtain-sided vehicles. It is a roof suspended rave-to-rave strapping system which prevents the load from moving. It is operated from the ground with no need for drivers to climb onto the vehicle platform or blindly throw strapping over the load, as they would with a standard ratchet strap, making the system safer, quicker and overall more cost effective than precursor products.
