Pall-Ex wished itself a happy 20th birthday at the end of November, with a dinner and dance at Newport’s Celtic Manor Resort. The event was attended by a host of long-standing and new members, including Bullet Express, 1st Class Transport and Cartwright Bros Haulage, all of which picked up awards on the night. The network moved a total of 117 pallets on its first night of operation on 29 November 1996, which has evolved into nightly volumes exceeding 10,000 pallets. […]
Cris Stephenson has taken on the role of UK MD at Pall-Ex, succeeding Adrian Russell who becomes group MD, and assumes exclusive responsibility for the pallet network’s European operations.
Kenyon Haulage has joined the Fortec Distribution Network, covering the Blackburn, Blackpool and PR postcodes for the pallet network.
S&S Distribution, the Kent-based haulier snapped up by Palletline last year, recorded a pre-tax loss shortly after its purchase, newly published accounts show.
