Palletised Distribution to the Orkney Islands

When you get asked to send something to the other end of the UK that’s when you get an awareness and understanding of the distance and logistics involved in palletised distribution and deliveries. The challenge is even more complicated when coupled with an irregular size and weight.

The challenge…

Bottrills Transport faced this when approached by a regular customer, Farm & Stable, getting such a shipment to the Orkney Islands in a timely and cost effective manner.

“Having been quoted a rather large sum for this palletised shipment – mainly due to the highly irregular sizes and weights, I approached Bottrills who handle our day to day pallet shipments.

They were quick to come back with a highly competitive quote. They worked with me to ensure this was dealt with in a professional manner.

The goods were quickly collected and were delivered on time and in great condition.. As a result we had a very happy customer.

Farm & Stable have been supporting the top equestrian professionals across the UK for over 45 years. Our business has been built on impeccable customer service. Having fast and reliable delivery of all our products is critical to our success, especially at these competitive very times”  says Operations Manager Mike Mills

Karl Hodder Operations Manager Bottrills Transport says 

“We are a shareholder member of the Pall-Ex Group, the UKs leading palletised distribution network. Because of this we have a great advantage over many other haulage companies.  It enables us to work closely with regionally based, quality member depots for onward shipment to customers. Pall-Ex has introduced substantial operating and trunking efficiencies. This enables customers to send single or part pallet loads quickly and cost-effectively locally, nationally, and internationally. So, getting Mikes pallet to the Orkney Islands was a simple matter of good communication and a reliable team”
