Pall-Ex has announced a further addition to its membership network – Clive Cowern Transport Ltd, based in the Shropshire region and covering the Dudley and Wolverhampton post codes. Established since 1985, the company provides both general haulage and storage facilities and has a range of vehicles with a total fleet size of 35. They will handle the collection and delivery of palletised freight within their designated local postcode areas.
The company operates out of a 20,000 sq ft warehouse with an additional 10,000 sq ft hard standing storage space. Located in the market town of Bridgnorth, Clive Cowern Transport provides a comprehensive distribution service, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, operating throughout the UK and Europe.
Depot Principal Clive Cowern says: “Being part of a pallet network, particularly one as well established as Pall-Ex, means we can provide our customers with even better standards of service. As a busy and growing company we needed to expand our horizons. We chose Pall-Ex because of their reputation for professionalism and quality – we believe this is the best way for us to achieve our ambitious plans for the future.”
Hilary Devey, managing director of Pall-Ex, comments: “The West Midlands is of growing importance for Pall-Ex and Clive Cowern Transport Ltd has the exact quality of service and established reputation we were looking for. I have no doubt that they will be an extremely valuable addition to our growing network.”
Pall-Ex was established in 1996 by Hilary Devey to deliver small consignments of palletised freight cost-effectively throughout the UK. In less than ten years, the company has become the No.1 operator of a palletised “hub and spoke” freight network, with over 100 depot locations throughout the UK and Europe and a purpose-built £12M hub in Leicestershire. Pall-Ex offers a comprehensive range of pallet storage and delivery solutions, with access to over 7,500 vehicles and over five million square feet of warehousing in the UK and Europe. It also supports the industry’s charity, Transaid, with its ‘Penny-A-Pallet’ scheme.
