Dear Mr Cross

Please accept this letter as formal notification of my retirement from Swift Transport as of 15 April 2014. I am giving two months notice to ensure a smooth handover and completion of all outstanding projects.

I would like to thank you for all the great opportunities and experiences I have had at Swift over the years. I am looking forward to my retirement but will really miss the team, and hope to keep in touch in the future.

All the best and please let me know if there is anything I can do to facilitate the transition.

Yours sincerely
