YORKSHIRE based cold storage and transport business Reed Boardall Group has again achieved strong annual results. The company grew turnover to £61.6m in its last financial year (ending 31 March 2018), a 2.3% rise in revenues from £60.2m the previous year.
Boroughbridge based Reed Boardall’s deputy chief executive said, ‘Given the fierce competition within the transport industry, along with rising fuel costs, this remains a challenging sector. However, we are proving resilient and recently invested in a further 30 bespoke, aerodynamic trailers to complement our 300 strong fleet.’
Operating 24/7, its 170 strong fleet of vehicles moves an average of 12,000 pallets a day and it stores around £100m worth of products on behalf of its customers. It employs over 750 staff at its single site in Boroughbridge.
