Fortec Distribution Network has announced six new members in its effort to drive volumes despite the challenges originating from Covid-19.
Among the haulage companies to most recently join the network are Butlers of Kent, Lakeland Commercials, Harbour Transport, the London branch of Freightport Logistics, LHR Global and Synergix Logistics Solutions.
All new members have joined following Pall-Ex’s acquisition of Fortec from Geodis in August.
Adrian Bradley, MD of Fortec, said: “Our growth in members is indicative of the determination and resilience of the UK logistics industry, which has impressively responded to the challenges of Covid-19 by both diversifying and recognising the benefits of a pallet network.
“By joining Fortec our members, whatever their size and wherever they are based, can transport anything that goes on a pallet – UK wide and beyond.”
He added: “Our members also benefit from our recently implemented shareholder options and being able to work with each other, all like-minded hauliers who are proud to be part of a network that supports each other goes out of its way to help each other’s growth.
“We are delighted to welcome so many new members to our network, all impressive businesses that are adapting, striving and thriving despite the challenges of Covid-19.”
