Scotland’s Pegasus Express extends shareholder membership by joining Fortec Distribution Network
As an established Pall-Ex member since 2011, Pegasus Express prides itself on providing its customers with an efficient and reliable service. It has now taken the next step on its journey, after joining Fortec as a shareholder member to maximise vehicle deliveries from the Midlands to Scotland.
Having shareholder membership in both the Pall-Ex and Fortec pallet distribution networks means Pegasus Express can expand its northern UK haulage pallet delivery options to a wider customer base by improving journey efficiencies.
Established in 1983 to provide a courier service to the emerging oil industry in Aberdeen, Pegasus Express has grown its remit by adding strategically located depots in Inverness, Dundee, Glasgow, Preston, and Birmingham, supported by a team of 70 staff and a fleet of over 60 vehicles. Its growth means that Pegasus covers the haulier requirements for more than half the total area of Scotland.
Michael Giulianotti, Operations Director at Pegasus Express commented “Being members of both networks gives us incredible access to the same award-winning IT, plus a range of pallet dimensions.
“The support we have had since we joined Pall-Ex a few years ago is incredible, and we are thrilled to be taking our next step on our journey with the Group, as we combine freight from both hubs, running vehicles to their optimum capacity.”
Pegasus Express’s service covers key areas in Scotland including Inverness, Perth, Aberdeen, Dundee and Motherwell.
Managing Director of UK Business Units, Barry Byers adds:
“Joining Fortec offers Pegasus the opportunity to partner with an additional 70 Fortec members across the UK, whilst increasing drop density of deliveries across the vast Pegasus territory. This increases both their operational efficiency and revenues, while also supporting our program of service excellence across both our Group shareholder networks, Pall-Ex UK and Fortec. We are delighted to add Pegasus to our Fortec member team.
