WH Bowker has expanded its services across Yorkshire by adding its Selby distribution centre to the Hazchem Network.

The move will allow the company, which specialises in carrying hazardous goods and chemicals, to offer a specialised ADR transport solution through Hazchem from its Selby DC.

Under the deal WH Bowker’s Selby DC will cover Hazchem’s YO postcodes, which include York, Goole, Howden, Thirsk, Selby, Drax, Bridlington, Scarborough, Malton, Pickering, Driffield and Dunnington.

WH Bowker operates more than 160 trucks and 300 trailers and over one million square feet of warehousing at seven UK distribution centres at Droitwich, Knowsley, Ripon, Selby, York, Preston and Hull.

The company also provides deep sea and air freight solutions.

Hazchem Network’s MD Robert Symes, said: “As one of the founding members of the Hazchem Network, Bowker already brings a wealth of experience and industry know-how to the network.

“The appointment of Bowker’s Selby depot undoubtedly strengthens the network’s position.”

Neil Bowker, commercial director said: “With distribution centres in Ripon, Selby and York, Bowker already has a strong foothold within the region.

“Being able to offer a specialised ADR transport solution through Hazchem will not only benefit current customers but will also provide a brilliant solution for new customers operating within the chemical sector.”
