Wisbech-based Pallet Network Anglia, also known as PE Logistics, has undertaken substantial fleet investment and a rebrand following its acquisition by WS Transport.
PE Logistics is renewing its fleet, with eight new tractor units and three 26-tonne vehicles replacing older units on its 28-strong fleet. The vehicles will be leased, as this provides repair and maintenance support and the best return on investment.
â€œHaving a new modern fleet is important to maintaining our service levels and our environmental credentials,â€ says sales and customer liaison Kelly Wilding. â€œNew vehicles offer the greatest reliability, the lowest fuel usage and the lowest emissions.â€
The vehicles also sport a vibrant new look which captures the PE Logistics brand and the Pallet Network Anglia trading name customers know so well.
â€œBusiness is booming,â€ says Kelly. â€œAlthough spectacularly high volumes have been challenging for everyone in the logistics sector, it is great news for the economy. Local demand for our services is so great we have a waiting list of companies who would like to work with us.â€
She emphasises that the company is careful to only take on work it can fulfil to satisfactory service levels. â€œResource is finite for everyone,â€ she says, â€œand we want to do well by customers. No responsible business expands to the point of service failure.â€
