Miniclipper Logistics is celebrating half a century of trading with a £5.5m investment in a new four acre site, as well as truck and trailer acquisitions.
The company, which launched in 1971, will relocate its entire transport operation on 12 April to the Dunstable premises and this will be topped off in late spring with the delivery of two new 12-tonne MAN rigids and five Lawrence David trailers.
They will add to the 11 MANs it took delivery of at the end of the first lockdown in June 2020 and is part of Miniclipper’s £500,000 fleet investment.

The site relocation frees up its Leighton Buzzard location in order to expand its warehouse capacity, which previously housed its trucks and trailers.
It is also investing an additional £2.2m on this site to increase capacity to 10,000 pallet spaces by October 2021.
Family-run Miniclipper said it had ridden the pandemic storm well with strong profitable growth, particularly in pharma and industrial sectors.
Miniclipper MD Peter Masters (pictured with wife Jayne) said: “We are proud to still be a family business after 50 years and we combine this personal approach with providing companies with a first-class transport, storage and warehousing service.”
