UK and European palletised distribution network Palletforce has announced that Lockwood Haulage has become its latest member.
Lockwood Haulage, based in Ambergate, joins Palletforce’s fast-growing network of high quality, forward-thinking members who between them offer more than 100 depots in the UK.
"Lockwood Haulage is a successful and well-regarded company that is committed to quality services and shares Palletforce’s clear vision for growth based on being the best," said Michael Conroy, Chief Executive of Palletforce.
"The company is a superb addition to our membership and we are proud to have them as part of the network – especially as they are committed to developing their own business and therefore contributing to our ambitious growth strategy throughout the UK and Europe."
Lockwood Haulage can trace its beginnings back to the 1960’s when it began delivering in and around Derbyshire. Over the years the company has successfully developed and now operates nationwide with a large fleet of 75 modern trucks ranging from 12 tonne curtain-sided vehicles to 44 tonne articulated units.
Wayne Evans, Transport Director at Lockwood Haulage, said: "Joining Palletforce was a great opportunity and one we simply could not say ‘no’ to.
"The opportunity to take on and develop an area with Palletforce fits in with our strategy for growth and adds another service level to our portfolio.
"Traditionally we’ve perhaps been seen to offer full and part load service but we are increasingly seeing demand for deliveries across the whole range of consignments size starting from single pallet through to full loads.
"Becoming part of Palletforce, with its innovative technology and strong brand, will strengthen our services in this area."
Lockwood Haulage’s membership replaces H Beardsley, further strengthening the quality of the network and ensuring Palletforce achieve on a local level the market position it achieves nationally.
