Gloucestershire-based Richard Read (Transport) has quit Pall-Ex to re-join United Pallet Network (UPN). In the same week UPN announced the arrival of Basildon-based R&P Clarke, which will continue to deliver for pallet network Fortec, too. Richard Read (Transport) will cover the Hereford and Gloucester postcodes, whilst R&P Clarke will cover postcodes across Essex and the south-east of England. Speaking to MT, Richard Read, MD, said he was “very happy” to be back at UPN, which the firm quit in 2015. […]
Pall-Ex is continuing its drive into Europe with the launch of a new network in Bulgaria.
Fortec is expected to learn shortly if it will need to spend any of a £500,000 contingency fund put in place after a site incident in 2016 that triggered an HSE investigation.
