BC Transport acquisition

Kinaxia Logistics has added the ninth haulier to its rapidly expanding stable, rescuing Bollington-based BC Transport from administration.

The Cheshire haulier is a founder member of the Palletforce pallet network and has an O-licence authorising up to 35 vehicles and 26 trailers, with a staff of 50.

It joins a rapidly expanding group comprising Bay Freight, William Kirk, NC Cammack and Sons, Foulger Transport, Lambert Brothers Haulage, Panic Transport, Maidens of Telford and, Mark Thompson Transport.

BC Transport was formed in 1964 and offers both general haulage and pallet network services.

Kinaxia Logistics director, Peter Fields, said: “We are delighted to welcome the team from BC Transport into Kinaxia, and as a fellow Macclesfield based business, we are pleased to have been able to save the jobs of the local workforce.

“This is likely to be our last acquisition this year but we anticipate making further investments in the next 12 months and these will be in line with our aim to build a flexible and efficient, service-focused haulage and warehousing group covering the UK.”

Palletforce CEO, Michael Conroy, said: “The addition of BC Transport to Kinaxia will enhance their business infrastructure and capabilities.

“It also safeguards the jobs and skill sets of a very experienced and talented workforce at BC Transport delivering highest quality Palletforce services to our growing membership base”
