D&D Transport in Nottingham has won a large-scale account after being recruited by one of the country's leading safety footwear companies. Rock Fall, an award-winning second-generation family-owned business, has positioned itself at the forefront of the safety footwear industry through innovations that provide solutions to the ever-changing demands of modern businesses. The organisation is proud of its British heritage and its position as a world leader in Health and Safety.

D&D Transport based at Langley Mill in Nottingham, part of the Palletways network which belongs to Imperial Logistics (Imperial), has been recruited by Rock Fall to handle deliveries of safety footwear across the country. D&D Transport expects to transport one full trailer load per day. Debbie Slack, Operations Manager at Rock Fall, said:

"Joanne Seabrook, the regional sales manager at D&D Transport got in touch when we went to market for a new supplier to handle our freight movements and there was an immediate connection between the two companies.

It's evident she's an industry professional and she gave us a fair price based on a first-class service, in line with our UK ethical standards regarding quality and fair pay. We awarded the account to D&D Transport based on quality, service, price, experience and our shared values for continual improvement. We've been instantly impressed with D&D Transport's outstanding service levels, so much so we've already increased the business we've given them.

We now use them for a significant proportion of our pallet freight to our nationwide distribution base of Safety Footwear Resellers."

Jo added:

"A combination of our first-class service and Palletways' industry-leading IT systems were integral in us securing - and subsequently growing - this account.

Rock Fall is one of our most valued customers and I'm sure the quality and efficiency of our service will contribute to their ongoing success."
