Sustained growth across EV Cargo business Palletforce has led to Kent-based Express European Couriers becoming the latest leading haulier to join the expanding distribution network.
Express European Couriers is the twelfth new business to join Palletforce this year with the former Pallet Track member providing a comprehensive delivery and collection service, including 40,000 sq ft warehousing facilities, from its headquarters in Tonbridge, Kent.
The well-established operator will cover 12 TN postcodes, securing long-term delivery capacity and strengthening Palletforce’s operational presence in the south-east of England.
Express European Couriers has a strong market presence in Kent and is a well-connected family business. As a Palletforce member, it will allow the network to continue to provide the best possible quality service and drive further growth and long-term stability for members.
Michael Conroy, Palletforce chief executive, said: “As part of EV Cargo, our strategy is firmly focused on growth and increased volumes this year have allowed Palletforce to bring in a record number of new members. Express European Couriers has 20 years of experience in Kent and will be a huge asset to our existing network coverage in this part of the country.
“In turn, Palletforce can offer the business an efficient region in which to operate and long-term volumes with the potential for further growth with access to the best technology, infrastructure and range of delivery services.”
Express European Couriers managing director Sue Law said: “The move to Palletforce fits perfectly with our own strategic growth plans, and we are delighted to be part of a network which is so proactive in terms of investment, technology and support for its members.”
