International specialist reaps network benefits

[ November 21, 2014   //   ]

Midlands logistics firm Masterfreight has joined the Fortec Distribution Network, adding palletised collections and deliveries to its range of services.

The family-run firm, which has a 110,000 square foot warehouse in Oldbury, specialises in freight forwarding, export packing, UK, Ireland and European road transport, receiving imported goods from all parts of the world and exporting goods abroad.

It also works closely with two other companies owned by the same family and based at the same site: haulage firm Alpha Transport Services and shipping container storage company Central Container Services. Masterfreight has six purpose built dock level loading bays and overhead cranes able to handle up to 10 tonnes.

The bulk of its work is loading and unloading trailers, shipping containers, storing goods for customers and picking and packing for onward distribution in the UK and, until recently all pallet deliveries in the UK were carried out by third parties.
