Border control as Pallet-Track signs up Hicks Logistics

Award-winning Pallet-Track has continued its strategic membership expansion by starting 2021 with the addition of Hicks Logistics, one of Wales’ largest haulage companies.

Based at Caldicot, near Chepstow, and employing almost 80 staff, Hicks, which is also one of the UK’s leading low-loader specialists, will take over the Welsh border postcodes around Chepstow and Avonmouth for the Wolverhampton-based network on January 4, 2021. 

The family-based business, which dates back three generations, provides a wide range of transport and distribution services including 30,000 sq ft of warehouse space.

Previously part of another pallet network, Hicks owner Nigel Evans sees the move to Pallet-Track as one of strategic importance.

“Being part of a network provides a lot of opportunities for full and part load which can help local businesses to grow, as well as some of our existing customers with smaller deliveries,” he said.

“Pallet-Track is certainly one of the better-known names and it was in the right place at the right time and their values matched with our own – it is already looking promising for one of our existing customers who will benefit from the new membership.” 

Pallet-Track founder and managing director Nigel Parkes said: “The past year was challenging for many reasons that we all know about but Pallet-Track was able to turn the corner into 2021 in a strong position.

“We are delighted to welcome Hicks to our network, as it brings a high-quality family business pedigree service to their designated postcodes.

“It’s very much ‘Happy New Year’ as the addition of Hicks will help us to get 2021 off to a flying start and significantly strengthen our overall presence and portfolio.”
