The safety and well being of both our staff and clients is of the utmost importance. We have been working on ways to introduce measures that look after our team while ensuring that we can offer the same level of service.
Following UK Government advice, we are introducing measures that will change our office habits and transport procedures when we return to work. This will be be reviewed regularly based on the information available.
Martinspeed’s operators will be asked to continue a work from home policy. Senior staff will be in the office when needed.
Working together, we can continue to help with estimates, storage and artwork packing, UK and European based road freight and international air freight services.

It is understood that some clients may request technicians to wear masks or gloves when on site
- A requirement that anyone showing signs of sickness does not come to work and self isolates if needed
