Evans Transport Gears Up for Efficiency with New PalletForce Shed

evanstransport palletforce shed building progress 09

At Evans Transport, we're always striving to improve our services and deliver the best possible experience for our customers. That's why we're excited to announce the construction of a brand new PalletForce shed at our Bideford site!

This project, which began earlier this year, is dedicated to expanding our dry loading space specifically for our PalletForce network. This expansion will bring several key benefits:

  • Increased Efficiency: The new shed will provide significantly more space for handling palletized goods, streamlining the entire loading and unloading process.
  • Enhanced Vehicle Access: The improved layout will allow for better vehicle maneuverability, reducing congestion and optimizing traffic flow within the Bideford site.
  • Improved Warehousing Opportunities: Once the new shed is operational, the existing one will be freed up, creating additional space for Evans Transport's general warehousing needs.

We're proud to be working with a fantastic team on this project. T&M Buildings supplied the steelwork, assisted with groundworks, and will be completing the concrete floor. Watts Partridge Construction is handling the erection of the steelwork and cladding – you can even see a progress video on their Facebook page!

For the project, we're utilizing our own reliable machinery, including a 24-ton Volvo 360 excavator and a 46-ton Volvo excavator. T&M Buildings is utilizing their telehandler for on-site material handling, while Watts Partridge Construction has brought in two cherry pickers from National Platforms to aid in the construction process.

This new PalletForce shed isn't just about bricks and mortar; it's about building a more efficient and productive future for Evans Transport's palletized goods distribution. With a targeted completion date before winter, this expansion will provide our dedicated PalletForce team with the space they need to safely secure loads and deliver exceptional service to our valued customers.
