Bristol logistics company joins Palletline freight distribution

IC Express joins Palletline

Bristol logistics company IC Express has joined Palletline, the West Midlands-headquartered palletised freight distribution company, which it hopes will help boost its next phase of growth.

Established in 2003 by Managing Director Ian Crook, who at the time was running just a single vehicle, the company now operates out of three sites in Bristol.

With a fleet of 30 vehicles and a staff headcount of 45, IC Express offers a complete logistics service across Bristol, the UK and beyond.

Having established a strong client base predominately in the South-West, IC Express also has a nationwide haulage network built in the opening months of the pandemic in order to diversify the business’ offering.

Over the course of the pandemic IC Express also worked with the NHS delivering supplies and equipment to the Nightingale hospitals where they provided racking, flooring, building materials as well as face masks and medical equipment.

Although the company has previously been part of a pallet network, Palletline appealed to Ian because of its  as it flexible service and consistency.

IC Express were also keen to join the palletised distribution specialists and take advantage of the network’s nationwide operations in order to extend its service offering and help meet the growing needs of their customers as demand continues to remain high.

Ian believes that joining Palletline is the next natural step in IC Express’ progression as he looks to continue to drive growth within the business.

Ian Crook: “In just the first four weeks of us joining Palletline’s network we came to realise that not only do they share the same customer-centric ethos, but they go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we are able to deliver optimal service not only to us, but to our own customer base as well.”
