The Bye name in transport goes back to the late 1800s with my great, great Grandfather Edward Bye who was what was known as a cartman. Cartmen were employed by local railway companies to deliver goods and parcels to the local areas, like a modern day van driver but with a horse and cart. He and his family lived in a mews house where the horse would stay at night, the bottom of the house acting as a stable and were designed for this. Living in London work was also given from the London docks collecting goods from the cargo ships that arrived from overseas. My great grandfather Charles bye (Edwards son) continued with the business until he went to war. My grandfather Arthur Bye also worked on the London docks after world war 2, and always reminded me that he received and unpackaged the first ever Vespa motorbike to enter the UK via the docks.
I began my journey in transport and logistics at the age of 18, working in Tottenham, North London for the electrical company Currys PLC, by the age of 19 I was the youngest driver for the company. I have worked in logistics since then and was depot manager at 29 for Fastrack parcels PLC, running the largest and the busiest depot of the 70 sites they operated from, working with clients such as Mamas and papas, Yamaha and pioneer, to mention just a few. My biggest achievement at that time was to win the Virgin Wine contract worth over 3 million pounds, which was classed as a very big deal at the time. Now the time has come to put the BYE name back firmly on the map in Logistics where it belongs and hopefully my son’s will continue the journey into the future
