PD Congress Online

Our first ProDriver Congress Online Webinar is now available on demand. “Beyond the Passenger”, held on Thursday, March 11, took a deep dive into how moving into the delivery market has been a life-saver for taxi and private hire operators.

With superb input from three operators that have made the move and bucked the trend of decline within the market, plus practical technology input from dispatch systems leader Autocab, the 75-minute webinar explains how your company can jump on this growing train, and examines the issues and problems surrounding a move into a new market.

Our speakers – Dominic Moyes of Nottingham’s DG Cars, Tom Shanks of Newcastle-upon-Tyne-based Blueline, and Matt Young of Shrewsbury Taxis, run very different sized businesses, but have all made food deliveries a key part of their business, and as a result, rather than laying off drivers during the Covid-19 pandemic, they have kept their fleet moving, and added new drivers too.

Autocab managing director Safa Alkateb explains how the technology is already there to turn your cab fleet into a delivery service with a minimum of fuss, via its Delivery Point app.

The lively and informative discussion, chaired by Professional Driver editor Mark Bursa, explains how these operators did it, and where they believe the market is now heading – beyond food, and into retail and other deliveries.
