Fortec member Allen Logistics has sealed its commitment to the group by joining Pall-Ex and expanding its service in Northern Ireland.

The haulier said it would provide coverage to areas of the BT postcode out of its main depot in Moira.

Pall-Ex said joining the network gave the company access to 120 members around the UK as well as international partnerships and provided the opportunity for it to improve the efficiency of consignments coming into or leaving Ireland.

Allen Logistics offers specialist services, such as hazardous goods transport, global freight forwarding and out of hours deliveries.

As well as a 70,000sq ft warehouse in Moira, the haulier also has a 20,000sq ft unit in Lutterworth.
