Farralls and Fagan launch 4PL

Farralls Transport has teamed up with Fagan &Whalley, to launch a new 4PL company, FF&W, in response to growing market demand for logistics solutions and fully managed supply chain services.

Based in the North West, the two logistics specialists have a combination of more than 140 years of experience within the sector, with a total of 180 vehicles, 500 trailers, and a network of some 50,000 sq m of warehousing space.

“Together as FF&W we are perfectly positioned to respond to the new challenges faced by our customers – those of meeting flexible demand, exceeding end-customer expectations and creating value through added services,” said managing director of Farralls Transport, Mike Farrall.

Managing director of Fagan &Whalley, Stephen Fagan, added: “FF&W will have the shared values of both partner organisations and the combined management skills, assets and vision to co-ordinate complex logistics activities for large and medium sized businesses.”

FF&W has already won a contract with Knauf Insulation, which provides insulation materials to Europe’s construction industry.

The new 4PL will distribute both glass fibre roof insulation and rock mineral wool cavity insulation from the company’s factories in St Helens and Queensferry. It will also manage the transport of cladding products from Knauf’s Cwmbran production facilities.
