A Hull-based haulier has been gifted a celebratory dual-liveried trailer by Pallet-Track to mark 20 years of exemplary service for the pallet network.

Distribution specialists Harrison Solway received the new trailer after being voted Shareholder Member of the Year by Pallet-Track’s 90-plus shareholder members.

The livery features both Harrison Solway and Pallet-Track branding, underlining the pallet network’s ongoing commitment to its members while raising the profile of its award-winning member.

The gifted dual-branded livery was revealed at Pallet-Track’s annual shareholder members meeting in Coventry and is part of the pallet network’s 20th anniversary celebrations.

Lee Solway, director at Harrison Solway, said: “To be deemed as the best shareholder member by our fellow members and partners is truly humbling and really cements just how amazing our Harrison Solway team are.

“I was absolutely lost for words, as the trailer was a total surprise not only for me personally, but for everyone who attended our shareholder members meeting.

“It only hit home when the conference room curtains were opened and there it was, right outside the room, the eye-catching dual-liveried trailer as a gift from Pallet-Track to Harrison Solway.”

Stuart Godman, CEO at Pallet-Track, said: “Harrison Solway is a highly-respected shareholder member of Pallet-Track with an exemplary service record.

“The team’s commitment to customer service and their fellow members underlines everything that Pallet-Track strives for.

“We wanted to celebrate this and to thank the team for their hard work over the last 20 years, and we look forward to seeing the trailer out on the road.”

Lee added: “I am unbelievably proud that in 2023, our team delivered a perfect 100 per cent delivery success rate in our ‘HU’ postcode after successfully delivering more than 31,000 pallets without a single failure.

“We hadn’t been involved in a pallet network prior to joining Pallet-Track in 2004, but we saw the direction the UK logistics sector was travelling in and the merits of being involved, and to this day it’s still the best business decision we have made in nearly 25 years of trading.

“Here’s to the next 20 years of being part of something very special, the best pallet network with the best people, with a very bright future.”

Harrison Solway was established in 2000 with 10 vehicles and 35,000 square feet of warehousing.
The family-run firm joined Pallet-Track in 2004, supporting its growth to include 35 vehicles and 50 trailers and 100,000 sq ft of warehousing.

Pallet-Track launched in 2004 with 46 members and handled 852 pallets during its first night of operation. Its shareholder network now includes more than 90 members, who collectively move four million pallets per year.
