A leading logistics specialist in Manchester is driving forward with its ambitious expansion plans as it invests £694,000 in new trucks and trailers.
AKW Group, based at Trafford Park, has purchased four new Scania trucks for its transport operation AK Worthington as its plans to take its turnover to over £25million in the next four years.
"As the UK economy continues to shake off the recession our investment in the vehicle fleet is crucial as we aim to offer our new and existing customers greater flexibility to transport more of their goods," said Jason Bradley, Operations Manager for AK Worthington Ltd.
AKW has also invested in two urban trailers, two wrap around double deck trailers and four double deck trailers, taking the total in its fleet to well over 100.
"This is a major investment however as a well-established transport firm built on quality customer service it is important to invest in the latest technology to meet our customer's needs," said Julian Richards, Managing Director of AK Worthington Ltd.
AKW Group also has over 500,000 square-feet of warehousing, a dedicated contract packing operation and an international freight movement service.
