Leading palletised freight network Palletforce has welcomed the addition of a new shareholder member.
Fifth generation family business Crowfoots Carriers, which has its main depot in Barwell, joined the award-winning network in March, covering selected Leicester postcodes.
The company, which was founded more than 100 years ago and employs around 200 people, operates a modern fleet of 80 vehicles, offering a variety of transport services including nationwide parcel, pallet and hazardous ADR.
Philip Crowfoot, fourth generation family member and Sales Director at Crowfoots Carriers, said: “Palletforce has always represented quality to us and we are thrilled to be joining such a reputable and forward thinking network.
“As a company, we handle around 1,000 trading accounts and for many of our customers we are their one stop shop for everything.
“Palletforce is now an intrinsic part of our offering and perfectly complements our multi-faced operation. We now have access to a number of great facilities including innovative IT systems that will benefit our customers and allow us to further grow our business and we look forward to what the future now holds for us as a Palletforce member.”
Dave Holland, Sales and Marketing Director of Palletforce, added: “This is a great addition to our membership – Crowfoots is a hugely successful business, which has its roots firmly planted in family values.
“We are delighted that Phillip Crowfoot and his fellow directors see their future as part of our network, which has been built, and continues to grow, on the quality of our members. This addition further consolidates our position as the number one quality express pallet network.”
