RCS Logistics' new trailers

Corby-based RCS Logistics has made a major investment in its fleet as it celebrates its 40th year in business.

The firm has added 14 new trailers to its fleet, just a few months after investing in six Mercedes Sprinter vans, taking the fleet size up to more than 60 vehicles.

Managing director Steve Gray said: “RCS is committed to ensuring its fleet remains current and cost-effective to operate and the new trailers will be a welcome addition to the fleet.

“Each of these new trailers has been designed and manufactured using cutting edge technology and helps to maintain our reputation as a high quality, professional company.”

RCS Logistics was set up in 1973 to deliver sacks of coal around the local area.

Over the years it has continued to expand, including becoming a founder member of Palletforce, the UK’s leading palletised distribution network, in 2001.

It now employs 115 people and works with leading household names.

The chief executive of Palletforce, Michael Conroy, said: “It is fantastic to see that in its 40th year RCS Logistics is still driving forward with investments into the business to ensure it always delivers exemplary service.”
