Pall-Ex Group strengthens its network in Scotland with the addition of new member Rhino Express


The Glasgow based distribution and warehousing business has joined both the Pall-Ex and Fortec pallet networks as a new shareholder member. Since being founded four years ago, it has built a reputation as a well-established and specialised logistics company in the area, with its leadership team boasting over 35 years of experience within the industry.

Its expertise lies in moving technical, oversized, valuable and fragile equipment, with a company mission of providing unmatched supply chain support.

Rhino Express offers a vast range of services for customers, with the aim of streamlining all logistical requirements into one place, offering warehousing and inventory management, time critical transport and abnormal loads.

Explaining why they decided to join Pall-Ex Group as a shareholder member, Jim Murdoch, Managing Director at Rhino Express comments: “Pall-Ex Group presented us with a great opportunity to grow and fill the gaps we had identified in our business. Building a strong customer base in our area is important to the business and the Groups partnership allows us to do this.

“The shareholder model that Pall-Ex Group offers allows us to join a team of like-minded members who all strive for the same goal of service levels and network growth.”

Located in Paisley, Rhino Express will be covering the Kilmarnock and Paisley postcodes in western and south-western Scotland.

By joining Pall-Ex Group, Rhino Express will gain access to a huge pallet distribution network comprising over 160 haulage companies situated all over the UK. Another commercial benefit is the additional pallet dimensions available with Pall-Ex and Fortec, which are the largest in the palletised freight distribution sector.

With haulage businesses increasingly focused on improving customer service and relationships with clients, access to the Pall-Ex Group’s sector-leading Nexus system will enable Rhino Express to meet and exceed customer needs, with the highest levels of efficient service and real-time visibility. 

Rhino Express will be an appreciated addition to Pall-Ex Group’s Scotland Project, which is aimed at improving service levels and reducing costs that are associated with final mile delivery in the difficult landscape of Scotland. 

Marc Batey, Regional Director for North East & Scotland comments: “We are pleased to welcome Rhino Express to our UK network, and are looking forward to working with a business with such a wealth of experience and a real determination to provide a first class service. 

“Partnering with companies that share the same vision for growth in the industry is a priority for us at Pall-Ex, and it’s clear Rhino Express are keen to diversify and expand their business whilst maintaining the same high levels of service they already provide. 

“It’s great to have them onboard, expanding the coverage we are able to offer to both Pall-Ex and Fortec customers and we can already see an improvement to our service in a challenging area and beyond.”
