Pollock (Scotrans) has joined the Palletways pallet network, covering the EH postcode as well as some of KY and TD.

The West Lothian operator has signed a ten-year deal with Palletways. It was previously a member of the Pall-Ex network.

Fraser Pollock, MD at the operator, says: “As a business, operating within the competitive distribution sector, we are always looking for opportunities to support our growth strategy by strengthening our service proposition to our customers.

“Our new membership with Palletways will open up new business opportunities for our company and will enable us to continue to offer our customers cost-effective, overnight and express palletised freight services to anywhere in the UK and to mainland Europe.”

Pollock (Scotrans) saw both turnover and operating profit increase in the year to 27 August 2011, its latest accounts reveal. However an exceptional item dragged down overall performance. See MT next week for more (16 July).

The EH postcode was previously covered by RJ Murray & Son, which has joined the Pall-Ex network.
