You won’t come across many who do removals London who can compare, as you’ll soon discover. These guys have managed to carve quite a distinctive lane for themselves and it’s down to the fact that they prefer to go against the grain and what’s popular with them.

Peter Hendy, current Commissioner for Transport of London and former President of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), has been Knighted in the 2013 New Year’s Honours celebrations. Hendy, 59, has been recognised for outstanding leadership during a time of great progress for London’s transport system.
At the helm, in 2012 Hendy achieved record passenger numbers as well as overseeing what Boris Johnson describes as “the largest ever investment program in the Capital’s transport system”. This included, but is not limited to, investments in buses, rail and roads around London.
In addition to this, Sir Peter was also in charge of the smooth operating of the transport and infrastructure in place for the 2012 Olympic Games which showed the world that London can now handle huge numbers of visitors that flock there every day. Johnson went on to describe London as “the best place to live, work and invest in” thanks in part to these improvements made under Hendy’s leadership.
Hendy’s road to success has been a long one, streaked with success. Prior to his current responsibilities, he began as a London Transport Graduate in the 70′s before landing a lead role for a major London bus firm. There he oversaw investment, expansion and buyout by FirstGroup, remaining heavily involved in activities in both the UK and China. His major break came when Ken Livingstone appointed him Managing Director of Surface Transport for Transport for London in 2001, leading to the position of Commissioner for Transport of London in 2006.
Having made a mark on London’s transport, Sir Peter Hendy is a home-grown British business success story whose lasting legacy will be appreciated for decades to come.
