Tandem - a case study: Wellingborough to Thrapston
Wellingborough is a town of 60,000 people in Northamptonshire. Nearby Thrapston is home to large industrial and distribution sites with occupiers including Primark, Paperchase, DSV and Morrison’s.
There is no bus service that operates from Wellingborough to Thrapston - creating barriers to work for potential recruits and corresponding attraction and retention challenges for local employers and employment agencies.
In partnership with local employment agencies, Tandem has created a new service - bookable through our technology - that offers a shared taxi journey for close to the price of local buses (where they do operate).
This has led many workers to take on roles they would otherwise have been unable to accept.
