Nigel Rice Transport based in Doncaster and North Humberside, has launched a new delivery service across the North, which has been unveiled by Olympic Gold medal winning Boxer Nicola Adams.

Nigel Rice Transport, which is a member of Palletways, the UK’s largest network for the distribution of small consignments of palletised freight, now offers local businesses shorter order lead times for deliveries across the North, as well as a more environmentally friendly service.

The enhanced distribution service is centred on a new £500,000 hub operation based in Leeds. Previously Nigel Rice Transport would deliver goods in the North via hub operations in Lichfield, West Midlands and Livingston, Scotland.

As part of an 18 depot-strong Northern network, Nigel Rice Transport will distribute their customer goods, collected earlier in the day, into the hub for onward delivery by another Palletways member to their final destination in the North.

Says Nigel Rice, the Principal at Nigel Rice Transport: “The development of the new hub operation enables us to enhance our delivery service and open up new business opportunities. In addition, due to the location of the hub in the North, we will drastically reduce the mileage our vehicles travel and associated carbon emissions, which will boost our green credentials and those of our clients.”
