Pall-Ex has confirmed C Butt will be taking on the postcode currently run by Mainland, following the latter’s merger with Knights of Old.

Kettering-based Knights of Old is a member of the Palletforce network, while Northampton’s Mainland runs in the Pall-Ex network. The businesses merged last year.

From the 1 June Mainland officially became part of Knights of Old, with its brand and livery now retired in favour of the blue and yellow of Knights.

Cris Stephenson, deputy MD at Pall-Ex, confirmed to MT that Mainland was working its notice and new member C Butt would take on its NN postcode from next summer. He described the outcome as “very amicable”.

“They are doing a full year’s notice and it’s all been extremely professional,” said Stephenson.

C Butt only entered the pallet network world for the first time last month when it began operating the CV postcode for Pall-Ex. Stephenson confirms this is going well.

C Butt will continue to operate the CV area along with the new NN postcode.
