Clugston Distribution Services has invested £500,000 plus in eight new Renault Premium tractor units as part of its plan to become one of the North’s leading logistics companies.
General manager David Heath said: “We are anticipating 2012 to be a successful growth year, across all areas of the business. Our curtain sided fleet, which only entered service in September 2011, is already working for a broad range of new customers and compliments our specialist logistics services. The new tractor units will allow us to further develop our range of services.”
It is developing a presence in a number of new sectors including fuels distribution and delivery of intermodal dry bulk containers using the company’s existing specialist vehicles and expertise.
The company expects its fleet to reach more than 70 vehicles by March. It is also investing in a number of high volume curtain sided trailers to meet new customer requirements.
