  3. Mars-Jones Limited

Delivering excellence since 1924, Mars-Jones Limited is one of the leading transport and logistics companies in North Wales.


Mars-Jones looked very different in the 20s, originally carrying coal from Denbigh Train station to neighbouring villages by traction engine. However, the company has adapted and grown through the years into a full logistics company with a fleet of 44 vehicles, providing road freight services, warehousing and pallet distribution through the Pall-Ex network.

 Growing Through Membership of the Pall-Ex Network

Mars-Jones is a key member of our freight distribution network, covering locations across North Wales and beyond. They joined Pall-Ex from the UK Pallets network in 2014 and the relationship has thrived ever since.

“Pall-Ex are very good at their job, they operate efficiently, and the information services and support network has helped give us confidence and continue to grow”

Philip Mars-Jones, M.D. of Mars-Jones Ltd.

New members services, including our industry-leading MyNexus software and access to our extensive network of European partners, also means we can provide a continually evolving service to members such as Mars-Jones.

“The new NexusConnect software is easy to use and easy to follow – it helps keep distribution simple. The European services closes the circle to help provide a full range of services”

Philip Mars-Jones, M.D. of Mars-Jones Ltd.

Located in Wales, Mars-Jones is perfectly placed to help other members of our network transport consignments to harder-to-reach rural areas across North Wales, while Mars-Jones can extend their pallet distribution network to beyond Wales to pick up business nationwide.  

Nearly A Century of History and Still Growing

As Mars-Jones speeds towards 100 years of operations, the business continues to thrive. In 2017, the firm opened a new state-of-the-art depot in Deeside to handle growing customer demand and store over 5,000 pallets for distribution.

The facility strengthens Mars-Jones’s presence as a key Third-Party Provider, alongside creating new jobs in the area.
