Rothertham-based 4S Distribution has joined the Palletforce network to cover the S postcodes around the Rotherham and Barnsley areas.

The haulier, incorporated in December 2017, replaces A Davies Transport. Palletforce said A Davies had moved its operations from Barnsley to Wakefield where the pallet network was unable to offer any coverage.

David Simpson, MD of 4S Distribution, said: “We might be a new business, but we have an experienced team leading the company and a fresh approach to operations. We are delighted to be a member of one of the UK’s leading express palletised networks.”

Palletforce chief executive Michael Conroy (pictured) said: “We welcome 4S Distribution to Palletforce as we continue to consolidate our position as market leaders in the sector. The business has an experienced management team which will serve to strengthen our services even further across South Yorkshire.

“David has a proven track record in the sector, and I wish him and his team every success at this exciting time in Palletforce’s evolution.”
