He comments: “As existing members of a parcel network, Trans UK were looking to diversify and take on a pallet distribution operation which exactly mirrored our requirements. Contact was initially made in late 2021, since then it has been a pleasure working with Richard, Ian and Paul in getting the agreement finalised.

With many years of industry experience combined between the three Directors, we are delighted to secure such a prestigious business into our network who will add strength and presence to the South East London region. Focussed on service and being commercially astute, we believe that Trans UK together with the two Pall-Ex Group networks, have a very bright future ahead. We cannot wait to support Trans UK become a true force within London in the sector.

Strategically located in Peckham SE15 and operating from an effective site, they are in a prime position to offer a quality service to a notoriously challenging part of the capital.

I would like to welcome Richard, Ian, Paul and the rest of the team at Trans UK to the Pall-Ex Group family and wish them the absolute best for the future. I very much look forward to working closely with them.”
