EV Cargo’s Palletforce has got 2024 off to the strongest of starts with the recruitment of one of the South West’s most respected names in road distribution.
Based in Hallen, South Gloucestershire, Wrings Transport operates 65 vehicles and is joining an express pallet network for the first time to help create additional commercial opportunities and drive business growth.
Operating across three sites and with 100 employees, Wrings Transport was started in 1995 by Managing Director Stuart Wring and is taking on south-west BS postcodes around Weston-super-Mare.
The business is a renowned and respected operator in the region and will ensure Palletforce members and their customers continue to benefit from best-in-postcode service, unrivalled quality and an unbeatable customer experience.
Stuart has recently finished a term as Chair of the Transport Association, a trade organisation championing quality and family values, which includes 18 Palletforce members.
Stuart Wring, Managing Director at Wrings Transport, said: “Joining a pallet network was a strategic decision as it fits well with our current infrastructure and operational platform, where we have the capacity and capability to handle additional palletised freight.
“With volumes fluctuating across the industry, it also ensures we can offer our customers an agile, scalable and sustainable solution for smaller consignments.
“We know many Palletforce members in the Transport Association and their ethos of quality and strive for excellence is well-aligned with our business, so Palletforce was the obvious choice for us.”
Mark Tapper, Palletforce Chief Executive Officer, said: “Wrings Transport is an extremely respected operator and certainly the stand-out pallet network member in the area, so we are very happy that they’ve turned to Palletforce for their first foray into network operations.
“The move lays down a marker for our intentions in 2024 as our focus continues to be on strengthening our network, driving stability and consistency, and maintaining our reputation for delivering unrivalled customer service.”
