Premier Logistics takes on former Bill Chippington Pall-Ex postcodes

  • By Chris Druce

Leicester-based Pall-Ex member Premier Logistics has taken on the postcode areas previously covered by fellow network member Bill Chippington, following the latter’s collapse last month.

Bill Chippington ceased trading in June after efforts to sell the business proved unsuccessful, with several Pall-Ex members providing temporary cover.

However, Premier Logistics, which is headed by MD Lee Christopher, has now secured the lease on the defunct hauliers St Albans site, taking on its WD, AL and HA postcodes within the Pall-Ex network.

The operator also purchased a number of vehicles and trailers as part of the deal, although some of the rigids have seen been sold on. Two adminstration jobs and up to five driving jobs have been secured also.

Mark Steel, commercial manager at Premier Logistics, told Commercialmotor.com: “We anticipate strong growth from that depot over the next 12 months.

“The St Albans depot is the first of what we hope to be three strategic regional satellite depots. These locations will assist us to compete more actively in contract logistics and nationwide groupage,” he said.

Premier Logistics enhanced its fleet with 10 new Actros units in May.
