Swindon’s Les Smith Haulage has joined Palletways and will provide services across Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire for the network.

Nick Smith, director at the family-run haulier said it signed up to Palletways due to its “mature domestic and pan-European networks”.

He said: “Palletways is ahead of the curve in terms of innovation and technology and its portal and state-of-the-art monitoring and tracking systems bring operational efficiencies too.”
