Pall-Ex acquires Cranleigh pallet business

[ February 24, 2020   //   ]

Pall-Ex (UK) subsidiary Cranleigh Distribution Services has acquired the goodwill of the UK pallet operation from Cranleigh Freight Services. The latter will will concentrate on its European just-in-time operation and two-man home delivery in the UK. Cranleigh Freight Services Limited was established by Colin and Pauline Young in 1977 with a single leased truck to provide logistics services to Europe. It later added pallet distribution, joining Pall-Ex in 1996.

Pall-Ex group chief executive Kevin Buchanan said: “This is the first acquisition of our new era and marks an exciting opportunity for Pall-Ex to retain a high-quality distribution service in the south-east.”
