Surge in Membership Growth

Applications for ALLMI membership have soared since the turn of the Association’s current financial year, with levels increasing eight-fold compared to the same period in 2020.

ALLMI CEO, Tom Wakefield, comments “For obvious reasons, 2020 was slower than usual in terms of membership expansion and whilst we expected to see an improvement in this financial year, growth in quarters one and two has exceeded our expectations. We’ve had a surge of new members joining in recent months and if sign-ups continue at the present rate, it could turn out to be our best ever year on this front.”

One such company to recently join is Hallett Silbermann, a leading provider of logistics solutions and specialist heavy haulage services. Operations Director, Charlie Threapleton, comments “We’ve been using ALLMI’s training courses for many years and so becoming part of the Association’s membership was a natural step for us to take. The joining process was incredibly thorough and included a full review of our lorry loader activities, mapping them against legislative requirements and industry good practice.”

He continues “We are proud to have met the standard and attain a membership status that carries significant weight within the lorry loader industry. We now look forward to receiving an excellent level of ongoing advice and guidance, which will help us to achieve continual advancement and compliance.”

Tom Wakefield adds “ALLMI membership is something which is earned; the industry recognises the value in dealing with an ALLMI member and the investment in quality the company will have made to have the right to display the ALLMI logo. Along with our membership services, this credibility provides us with a strong foundation for membership retention and growth, and is the reason we have experienced such a significant upturn following the events of last year.”
