Bottrills Transport Ltd expands its team and fleet

Chichester-based logistics company, Bottrills Transport Ltd is starting 2021 with some good news, as it expands both its team and its fleet of vehicles.

The Pall-Ex shareholder member is delighted to be putting its first owned truck on the road, as it takes delivery of a DAF FTG XF-530, Euro 6, 44 tonne, 6x2 chassis cab, with the Bottrills name proudly emblazoned across the front.

The ex-DAF demo vehicle is loaded with all the best extras and is a very solid and reliable truck, which will head up the Bottrills fleet well.

The addition also brings new people to the team, and a shift in roles. Regular day driver Gavin Smith will be taking over the controls of the DAF for the day deliveries, with Tim Cooper joining the team to drive the Renault Master citiLoader van, for all urban and residential deliveries.

The business is also set to welcome additional drivers who will complete the nightly runs from the Chichester depot, to the Pall-Ex hub in Ellistown, Leicestershire.

Bottrills’ Director, Joe Parker, and Karl Hodder, Operations Manager, have been keen to get the business’ own truck on the road for some time.

For the team, the opportunity to buy this unique silver 25-year anniversary truck, complete with Union Jack graphics, was just too good to miss, Joe explains.

He comments: “We were looking for something that would stand out from the crowd as well as being a practical answer for the company’s needs”.

Karl Hodder added; “After being with Bottrills for six months and seeing the progress we have made; the time was right to have our own vehicles”.

“Our thanks to Russel Nash and the team at the Adams Morey dealership for all their help and advice in choosing this spectacular truck.”

"The Bottrills branded trailer is now on the roads, we cannot wait to see it delivering around the local area and on its route to the Pall-Ex hub in Leicestershire."

Bottrills Transport Ltd continues to be fully open for business during lockdown and the team are more than happy to quote for a wide range of logistics solutions.

The business holds the enviable position of being a shareholder member of the Pall-Ex network, providing access to a network of quality logistics companies throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.

The Chichester-based business is pleased to offer storage, warehousing or container devanning services and would be more than happy to discuss the unique logistics requirements of local businesses.
