John T Evans and Palletways wax lyrical about new vehicle livery

The new vehicle in the company’s fleet features a number of The Yankee Candle Company’s wide range of fragranced candles and will join Palletways’ wider fleet with the iconic Yankee Candle branding on vehicles in Birmingham and London.

In May, Palletways announced a three year contract with the world's largest manufacturer of premium scented candles as part of Yankee Candle’s plans to increase its activity in Europe – following on the launch of its Consumer Direct website in October 2012 and the development of a 170,000 sq. ft. headquarters in Avonmouth. 

Martin Chalke, a Director at John T Evans Haulage Limited, said: “From our depot in Bristol, we are ideally situated to collect from Yankee Candle’s Avonmouth headquarters for ongoing delivery of products to the UK and mainland Europe via the Palletways distribution network.” 

Steve Waterhouse, Business Development Director at Palletways, added: “John T Evans was instrumental in helping the network to develop our relationship with The Yankee Candle Company and we are delighted to see the new branded vehicle on the road.

“We are experiencing significant demand for our services from businesses which export goods as they see the benefits of our single distribution solution to meet their pan-European delivery requirements.”
