Award-winning warehouse and 3PL provider Aztek Logistics has invested in its fleet to accommodate its new record-breaking volumes.
The Letchworth-based business, which is part of the award-winning Pallet-Track network, has seen a double-digit increase in service enquiries compared to this time last year.
With its operational fleet now at record levels, the company has purchased nine new Gold FORS standard trucks, including MAN tractor units, new MAN 18-tonne rigids, and its first 18-tonne Volvo rigids.
It follows a series of investments across the business, including the opening of a fifth warehouse, taking its storage space to 140,000 sq ft, as well as looking to recruit new staff members to coincide with the expansion our fleet and warehouse capabilities.
Aztek managing director, Stuart Charter, said: “Ongoing investment in our fleet is essential to ensure we are able to continue to deliver the top-quality service we are known for. With the past few months reaching new levels of demand due to the sheer volume of goods coming and going, this investment was vital to keep service smooth.
“Growing our fleet has helped us prepare as we enter peak season, where we are expecting to see even greater demand from both existing and new customers. We also need to consider the repercussions of a potential no-deal Brexit which could bring its own new level of need for our services.
“The new trucks are investment number three in our wider plan for growth, and we are still looking at new areas where we can build greater infrastructure and continue to exceed both customer expectation and accommodate rising volumes.
“We are confident that Aztek Logistics will continue its upward trajectory beyond 2020, therefore, investing in our infrastructure across all divisions of the business now, such as our fleet, will help us maintain top-quality customer care.”
