News: Green Group invest in new fleet


Rotherham logistics firm, The Green Group has placed one of the biggest orders yet for low-emission trucks from Mercedes-Benz as it signs up to Pall-Ex, the European palletised freight network.

With over 25-years experience in the logistics sector, Maltby's The Green Group is a member of the Freight Transport Association. The company also offers warehousing facilities, construction and civil engineering work, and has a number of other business interests in the commercial property market.

The company has left UK Pallets to join the Pall-Ex network and will take control of coverage for part of the S and part of the DN postcode areas.

Steven Reed, network development director at Pall-Ex, said: "The Green Group is a leading name in UK haulage and we are more than happy to welcome them to the network."

Mark Steventon, depot principal at The Green Group, added: "Pall-Ex is considered to be the leading brand in the European palletised freight sector and is well known for its service levels. As a company, it very much matches all of the values that we emphasise here at The Green Group."

The Green Group has also announced that it will take delivery of 50 low-emission Euro VI trucks supplied by local dealer, Northside Truck & Van. The new 50 Actros tractor units follow on from the 30 new trucks that went into operation last year.

Rebecca Wharmsby, assistant managing director at The Green Group, said: "We strive as a business to do all that we can to reduce our carbon footprint, not least because customers invariably ask us when conducting their own annual reviews, what we're doing to cut emissions.

"By investing before we needed to do so in clean, Euro VI technology from Mercedes-Benz, we've proved that not only are we Green by name, we're also green by nature."
