Birmingham Pallet Distribution Company Expands Fleet

….For increased Pallet Distribution & Oversized Parcel Deliveries in Birmingham


Our Birmingham Couriers business, which as well as small packages: specialises in the distribution of large parcels, palletised and non-palletised goods around the UK, has been forced to take on an additional five vehicles to cope with an increasing number of clients in Birmingham.

Adding the five large ‘Movano Low-Loaders’ gives us much needed extra capacity for pallets whether they are destined for an urgent same day delivery in a dedicated vehicle or to be collected from a Birmingham client and inserted into our ‘Pallet Network’ for next day or economy delivery.


Whilst our pallet delivery business has shown extremely healthy growth over a number of years, the increased reluctance of traditional parcel carriers to handle bulky consignments and the failure of ‘City Link’, an ‘ugly freight’ specialist over a year ago, means more and more customers are looking to us in an effort to find an economical method of getting larger products to their clients. Our wide range of delivery options mean we can usually help them achieve this within the budget they have available.


We can provide our clients with fast pallet deliveries on a same-day dedicated vehicle basis or often as groupage in one of our vans. For less urgent deliveries, insertion into our pallet network on a next day or 2/3 day service is an economical method of delivering your items. Whilst goods not on a pallet can’t be shipped through a pallet network they can still benefit from our oversized parcel service which can be used for large items up to 2.5 metres long. Packages over this length would need to be sent on one of our vehicles as a dedicated vehicle delivery or on an economical Groupage Rate.


For advice on the delivery of your items call us on 0121 2704938
