November 8th, 2016

Surrey-based logistics firm, Frederick R Miller Ltd, has invested £400,000 to expand its fleet to meet the growing demand for freight services across the region.
Frederick R Miller, part of Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network, operates in and around Kingston upon Thames, Guildford, Aldershot, Camberely, Woking, Fleet, Dorking, and Bordon. The company has taken delivery of four 44t Scania tractor units which will come into service immediately, to support the 200,000 pallets it moves every year through its collection, delivery and trunking operations.
Adrian Westwood, managing director at Frederick R Miller, said: “We owe it to other Palletways members and our customer base to continually invest in the best equipment, to maintain and improve our service. We believe this recent investment sends out a strong signal to the marketplace about our capabilities which we believe are unparalleled amongst our competitors.”
