Major deal for Hessle logistics firm will mean jobs
Hessle-based Neill & Brown Global Logistics have signed a deal to deliver consignments for UK Pallets.
The firm will become one of 80 logistics specialists who provide express deliveries throughout the UK.
Neill & Brown now say they will be growing their workforce to cater for growth as a result of the partnership.
Colin Moody, Neill & Brown’s managing director, said that the deal would result in a significant increase in business.
He said: “This is a significant development for us. Our exclusive agreement with UK Pallets will result in us gaining a much greater share of pallet movements from this area, with a large proportion of the goods being from Hull-based manufacturing companies and from distributors who have imported products into the Humber.
“As the logistics sector has become more sophisticated, businesses order goods in far smaller quantities and at short notice, removing the need to store excess stock. This has created a much greater demand for express pallet services.”
Mr Moody said that Neill & Brown had been signed up by UK Pallets because of its ability to respond quickly to the needs of customers while remaining cost-effective.
The express pallet delivery service from UK Pallets promises time-definite delivery and up-to-the-minute information online. It offers UK next-day delivery and a range of economy services.
Neill & Brown, which is an official partner of World Trade Centre Hull & Humber, recently announced three new international logistics partners.
It works throughout the UK, Europe and worldwide. The company has seen strong growth and now employs more than 100 staff at Livingstone Road, Hessle and Marfleet Environmental Technology Park, Hull.
