Palletforce members splash out on new vehicles

Posted on 8th November 2011 By Steve Clark

Two Palletforce members have invested hundreds of thousands of pounds in new vehicles decked out in the network’s colours.

UK Freight Masters has spent £300,000 on 11 rigids and EDS Couriers in Cannock has rebranded its 10-strong fleet after half were upgraded to newer trucks.

“We are located within the Transport for London Low Emission Zone which means our vehicles have to be up to Euro 4 emission standard by January 2012,” says UK Freight Masters director Dave Bland.

“Because of this, I decided to renew a lot of the fleet, so we’ve replaced seven trucks and added another four.”

EDS Couriers general manager Chris Burton says: “I’ve always been a great believer that we are on the same hymn sheet as Palletforce in terms of how we do business, so what better way to show it.”
