A leading UK transport and third-party logistics specialist with operations in Yorkshire, Lancashire and the West Midlands, has seen year-on-year growth starting the year.

Walkers Transport Group, a member of Palletways, transported 97,623 pallets in January, up 4,000 year-on-year, and management say such strong volumes is an encouraging sign of business growth.

Formed in 1979 as a road haulage company, Walkers Transport Group has grown to become one of the UK’s leading 3PL specialists that provides UK and European distribution from a single pallet to a full-load and encompasses in excess of 200,000 sq ft of dedicated warehousing space for its customer base.

Jason Scott, CEO at Walkers Transport Group, said: “We’re incredibly impressed with our performance. While I’m confident business will continue to grow during 2022, our main priority is to maintain the highest level of service for our customers for which we’re renowned, particularly in the face of volatility of demand.”

With a fleet ranging from vans to 44t trucks, Walkers Transport Group delivers an expansive array of goods for a multitude of sectors including Construction, Automotive, Manufacturing, and Retail. In partnership with Palletways, Walkers Transport Group also operates the Northern Hub in Leeds, providing an express gateway across the UK for ambient freight.

Walkers Transport Group is one of over 130 independent transport providers that are part of Palletways’ UK network. They benefit from shared expertise and resources from within the Group to deliver consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.  The Palletways Group comprises 400 depots and 20 hub operations, through which it provides collection and distribution services across 24 European countries, including the UK.
