A Clarke & Co (Smethwick) Ltd have prepared this report, as required by law, under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.
The figures are calculated using a snapshot date of 5th April 2017.
Established in 1933, A Clarke & Co are a family run business and are one of the leading privately owned multi-service transport organisations in the UK. On the snapshot date, 429 workers were categorised as "relevant employees" with the gender mix of the population as 13.5% female and 86.5% male.
As with most haulage/transport organisations, the nature of the industry is heavily male weighted, and although gender pay gaps exist this does not necessarily mean equal pay issues are present. A 2017 Freight Transport Association (FTA) report on the logistics sector confirms that the logistics industry is dominated by 86.9% of male workers, although there has been a small increase in the proportion of women in the logistics professions over recent years.

We have been using the delivery service for 8 years, and in that time, we have built a good working relationship with both the transport office and the drivers and the sales team. We are notified by email direct off the traffic office if there are any issues with deliveries for example driver have run out of time or such like issues, Any delivery that is delayed is promptly dealt with and is sent for delivery the following working day.
All of the collection drivers that we deal with on daily basis are extremely helpful, patient and help where needed.
