Palletforce will now offer next day delivery to the Isle of Wight, with Steve Porter Transport becoming the thirteenth new member to join the network this year.
Steve Porter Transport will cover selected PO postcodes, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands for the Palletforce network.
The company is the Isle of Wight’s largest independent freight carrier, after buying ferry operator Red Funnel’s distribution division in 2011.
It offers a cross-Solent drop-trailer operation from Southhampton to East Cowes.
Michael Conroy, chief executive at Palletforce, said: “Our strategy is firmly focused on developing growth opportunities and the highest levels of quality service for our members and their customers.
“The addition of Steve Porter Transport is a huge asset and provides our members with yet another market advantage and marks a year where we’ve added more members than ever before to ensure Palletforce remains the market-leader.”
Steve Porter transport was acquired by Knights of Old in August.
