Well Grounded – Family business with airborne connections joins Pallet-Track Network
Marshalls Transport, a traditional family-run distribution and storage business based at a former Second World War air training centre, is the latest member of the expanding Pallet-Track network.
The 25-year-old company located upon a 75-acre former airfield site at Pershore, Worcestershire, employs 50 people and has a long-established reputation for its attention to detail in handling and transporting loads of all sizes, ranging from food products and printed matter to hazardous materials and heavy machinery.
Commenting on his company’s decision to join Pallet-Track’s UK network – a move which is set to provide further strategic growth opportunities for Marshalls, both locally and regionally, operations director Brian Simpson said: “We see this as a very positive step. Like Pallet-Track, we are a dynamic company with a strong customer focus, so we’re ideally suited.
“Joining the network will enable us to offer a high quality and efficient pallet pick-up and delivery service to businesses in our area, whilst also giving them the opportunity to benefit from our wider storage and haulage solutions,” he added.
The addition of Marshalls brings the Pallet-Track network to 74 members, all of whom benefit from the ‘hub and spoke’ overnight distribution service that reduces fuel costs and the supply-chain carbon footprint created by empty running.
Nigel Parkes, managing director of Wolverhampton-based Pallet-Track, said: “The addition of Marshalls to the network brings another skill set and an attention to detail that is all too lacking in much of corporate life today. It is a complementary business to the network which will continue to grow through the rest of 2012 and into 2013.”
