Buffaload completes Davis Haulage acquisition

Buffaload Logistics has enhanced its position in the UK distribution and storage sector with the acquisition of Crewe-based chilled and ambient logistics specialist, Davis Haulage.

The independent high-volume temperature controlled operator concluded negotiations to secure the ongoing business, employee contracts and assets of Davis Haulage in what managing director Julie Feltwell describes as a strategic acquisition and ‘natural fit’.

‘We are truly delighted to announce this important development in our growth plan. Buffaload has worked closely with Davis Haulage for the last two years and its reputation for high quality service fits well with our own ‘customer-first’ ethos,’ she said.

With immediate effect, Davis Haulage will be integrated into Buffaload’s national storage and distribution network and it will be ‘business as usual’ for both organisations, Julie said.

‘Davis Haulage has achieved great success in its field, largely owing to the high calibre and expertise of its management team and long-serving employees. Now, with the addition of Buffaload’s nationwide operation and depth of industry know-how, we are even better positioned to offer a diverse and market-leading service to food producers, retailers and businesses, large and small, throughout the UK.’
