Turners (Soham) has increased its container haulage capacity with the acquisition of the business and assets of Essex container haulier Walker Transport Services.

The deal comes two years after Turners’ acquired Dart Distribution and a statement on the Turners’ website describes the deal as “a further step in Turners’ strategy to develop its container division into a national provider of road and rail services to shipping lines, freight forwarders and shippers”.

Walker Transport Services holds an O-licence for 25 vehicles and 40 trailers at its Europa Trading Estate, Grays, Essex, depot.

Turners’ acquired Dart Distribution in April 2010, adding 70 vehicles to its dedicated container fleet of 40.
