Prior to coming to Cordek, Sarah worked for a furniture manufacturer; working within the final stage of manufacturing, where she re-organised their fleet operations alongside gaining her qualification as a FORS Practitioner and her CPC.
As Cordek’s Transport Coordinator, Sarah’s role involved route planning for all vehicles, ensuring documentation for VOSA requirements, government legislation and FORS were compliant, and assisting with the vehicle inspections. In 2021, Sarah was promoted to Distribution Manager and has since become solely responsible for managing Cordek’s delivery fleet and Warehouse Team, ensuring that Cordek continues to meet delivery deadlines and customer expectations.
