Lichfield-based Palletways has invested £1.5 million in a new fleet of vehicles.
The company’s Birmingham depot has taken on 17 new vehicles, including three 44 tonne artic units and eleven 18 tonne rigid vehicles. The new vehicles will be used for deliveries in B and WS postcodes.
“Our primary concern is operating a fleet that maximises our ‘up-time’,” said Gary Curtis, general manager at Palletways Birmingham. “However, it has become clear in recent years that the industry is facing a recruitment challenge.
“To attract the best drivers, we need to offer market leading equipment and infrastructure and these new vehicles will offer our drivers a well-equipped, comfortable and modern working environment.”
