Lockdown Hero - Moto Saves the Day

As many of Moto’s usual customers stay at home, there’s one community of drivers who are relying on their services, now more than ever – HGV drivers.  

HGV drivers are working tirelessly to keep the country movingspending more time on the roads, working longer hours to help in the fight against coronavirus. So, as a thank you, service area operator Moto has recently announced that it will provide free food for lorry drivers who park overnight. The company has also extended its free parking period to help truckers take a well-earned break during the lockdown. 

The #HotMealsMatter free hot food scheme has been rolled out at 10 of Moto’s sites 

CEO Ken McMeikan said, “The free food is available to all HGV drivers when they park overnight. Food will be cooked to order in on-site kitchens and delivered in boxes to special collection points at each service area 

In addition, free parking time for HGVs at all Moto sites has been extended from two hours to three to give HGV drivers who are working split shifts adequate time to rest. 

HGV drivers are playing an absolutely pivotal role in the fight against coronavirus by delivering vital food and medicines across the country. They really are making a Herculean effort to keep critical supplies available to us all, so providing them with free food and extended free parking is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for the often arduous job they are doing. 

The first 10 sites to offer free food are Doncaster (M18), Ferrybridge (M62) Medway (M2), Heston West (M4), Hilton Park North & South (M6), Blyth (A1M), Birch East & West (M62) and Trowell North (M1). 

Great work Moto! Are there any other companies who are doing right by our HGV heroes? We’d love to know.
