Livingston-based Pollock Scotrans Ltd has announced that it will now be offering a full range of distribution services to Poland and the Baltic countries, including Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Services to the four countries will commence in June 2015.
The extension of its international services is being made possible by the distribution company’s membership of Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network.
It now means that Pollock Scotrans Ltd provides delivery services to 18 European countries, which also include Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Slovakia, Spain and the United Kingdom.
Scott Pollock, Principal at Pollock Scotrans Ltd, said: “These new additions to the network are really exciting times for both Palletways and Pollock Scotrans. This adds to our growing pan-European delivery capability and will open up significant new market opportunities for us and our customers.”
Luis Zubialde, Managing Director of Palletways UK Network, added: “Our expansion into Eastern and Northern Europe is part of our wider strategy to extend our geographical presence and provide even more value to our customers. It will be supported by our pan-European IT platform and central customer service operation in Madrid to ensure we provide the best possible customer experience.”
Palletways consists of 400 depots across Europe of which over 100 are in the UK. The company’s distribution networks are made up of independent transport companies, including Pollock Scotrans Ltd, who share each other’s resources to deliver consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost effectively than ever before.
