Perishable goods transport specialist PML has opened a satellite depot in Portsmouth, with five lorries and trailers hived off its fleet to service the port town and Southampton.

PML MD Mike Parr (pictured) said: “We never stand still and are always on the lookout for any new initiative which can further improve our service offering and ultimately, maximise the speed at which we can transfer temperature-sensitive goods – thereby minimising the impact on shelf life.

“The site has the potential to house a fleet of 10 lorries so there is the opportunity to further extend the depot if we see sufficient demand to warrant this.”
