Two new members for Palletforce

Lockwood Haulage and Nelson Distribution have both joined the Palleforce network, replacing East Midlands based H Beardsley.
Nelson Distribution was established in 1949 and now provides warehousing and transport services for paper, packaging, heating and construction from its five-acre site. It also delivers Just In Time on a daily basis to international automotive companies and makes daily deliveries to major retailers.
“We are entering a pallet network for the first time to enhance our service to our current clients and to allow us to tailor our services to meet the needs of traditional pallet network users,” said Simon Nelson, Managing Director of Nelson Distribution.
Ambergate based Lockwood was founded in the 1960’s when it began delivering in and around Derbyshire. The company now operates a large fleet of 75 modern trucks ranging from 12 tonne curtain-sided vehicles to 44 tonne articulated units.
Wayne Evans, transport director at Lockwood said: “The opportunity to take on and develop an area with Palletforce fits in with our strategy for growth and adds another service level to our portfolio.
“Traditionally we’ve perhaps been seen to offer full and part load service but we are increasingly seeing demand for deliveries across the whole range of consignments size starting from single pallet through to full loads.
