Avon Freight triples volumes

Haulage firm Avon Freight has increased its depot space, workforce and fleet after its volumes tripled in the past 18 months.

Avon Freight has transformed a 30,000 sq ft unit previously used for storage into a depot to facilitate its increased volumes dedicated to its Palletforce operation.

The firm has also taken on three extra staff – a driver, warehouse operative and administrative clerk – and invested in its fleet.

Director Simon Poole said: “We’ve now got four double-deck trailers round tripping to the Palletforce hub every night which gives us economies of scale and efficiencies.”
