Eddie Stobart has done itself a grave injustice

I totally agree with Alan Herron’s comments about the new Eddie Stobart livery (DW 17 November).

In one stroke, with their new design pizza, they have relegated themselves from the top of the visibility heap to languish, mid-table, in a very crowded, mediocre haulage market, with all the other also-rans.

The design itself has something of the ‘chairman’s-niece-doing-graphics’ about it.

Now I’ll no longer be able to count off the big green Eddie Stobart vehicles versus the big red Norbert Dentressangles, to pass the time on long schleps up and down the country.

What a shame… take heed Nobby!
