Torridge Grows

Its always nice to see one of the local haulage operators doing well as we have seen quite a few fleets fail over the years I have been running this blog.
Devon haulier Torridge Transport is extending its services to handle pallet deliveries in 2011 when it joins United Pallet Network (UPN).
The South Molton-based business will begin covering parts of Exeter and Taunton for the network from February next year. It is the firm's first time in a pallet network.
Brian Cobbledick, MD at Torridge Transport, says: "We have been thinking about joining a network for a while, and from 2011, our transport and storage customers can have a far greater choice when it comes to pallet deliveries. We also expect to win new clients."
The business expects to take delivery of some new trucks to join the 35-strong fleet and recruit employees to cope with a rise in volumes.

Driving into work yesterday morning, I couldn't help but laugh along with Radio 2's DJ Richard Allinson, who found much amusement in train operating company Southern's excuse for delays in excess of what it would normally expect during the 'leaf fall' period. A Transport of Delight
My blog has been going for three months now, so I thought I'd quickly let you know how it is getting on. Southern England Bus Scene
While travelling between sites yesterday lunchtime (weather not as bad as feared) the Radio Four programme Call You & Yours was receiving “advice” and comment from its listeners on how to cope with the British weather and how badly we seem to manage.
