LANCASTER TRANSPORT FIRM HAS LOADS TO CELEBRATE

Staff at a Lancaster-based transport firm are in a celebratory mood after marking its 65th year in business.

Kidds Transport on Caton Road, part of Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network, provides haulage services for many major manufacturers in the Lancaster area. The firm covers some 20,000 miles per week and handles in excess of 1,300 pallets every day.

Simon Park, managing director at Kidds Transport, said: “The business has grown significantly since its formation in 1952. We started off handling cattle and agricultural products but now move close to 320,000 pallets per annum. To date, we’ve handled more than 430,000 pallets for Palletways and I’m proud to say that we’ve worked hard over the last 65 years to become one of the largest members in the network. We’re looking forward to seeing what the next six decades has in store for us!”
Barry Byers, Palletways’ network director, added: “Kidds Transport’s dedicated record of service to the haulage industry is part of a sector which makes it possible for businesses across the UK and Europe to move their goods and enable our economy to thrive and grow. Palletways is proud to be part of the Kidds Transport success story, providing the pallet network technology and infrastructure to support their business to deliver the best possible service for their customers.”
Kidds Transport is a member of the Road Haulage Association (RHA), is FORS accredited and a member of the United Kingdom Warehouse Association (UKWA).

Palletways consists of 400 depots across Europe, of which more than 100 are in the UK. The company’s distribution networks are made up of independent transport companies, such as Kidds Transport, that share each other’s resources to deliver consignments of palletised freight to market with the highest levels of service.
