South Gloucestershire haulier Wrings Transport has joined a pallet network for the first time after being impressed by Palletforce’s ”ethos of quality and excellence”.

The company, which has a fleet of 65 vehicles and a staff of 100 employees, is based in Hallen and operates across three sites. It was launched by MD Stuart Wring in 1995.

As Palletforce’s latest member, Wring Transport will take on south-west BS postcodes around Weston-super-Mare.

Palletforce hailed the addition of Wring Transport to the network, adding: ”The business is a renowned and respected operator in the region and will ensure Palletforce members and their customers continue to benefit from best-in-postcode service, unrivalled quality and an unbeatable customer experience.”

Stuart Wring, who recently finished a term as Chair of the Transport Association, which includes 18 Palletforce members, said: ”Joining a pallet network was a strategic decision as it fits well with our current infrastructure and operational platform, where we have the capacity and capability to handle additional palletised freight.

“With volumes fluctuating across the industry, it also ensures we can offer our customers an agile, scalable and sustainable solution for smaller consignments.

“We know many Palletforce members in the Transport Association and their ethos of quality and strive for excellence is well-aligned with our business, so Palletforce was the obvious choice for us.”

Mark Tapper, Palletforce chief executive, said: “Wrings Transport is an extremely respected operator and certainly the stand-out pallet network member in the area, so we are very happy that they’ve turned to Palletforce for their first foray into network operations.

“The move lays down a marker for our intentions in 2024 as our focus continues to be on strengthening our network, driving stability and consistency, and maintaining our reputation for delivering unrivalled customer service.”
