Meachers Global Logistics is a member of the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce Planning & Transport Group and one of the UK’s leading independent providers of transport and logistics services. It has announced that it has purchased yet another 12 tractor units at a price tag of over £750k, 25 trailer units at a price tag of nearly £500k and will take delivery of five more tractor units later this year to total nearly £2m in investment.
The investment by the Southampton and Derby based business, will provide the company with significantly increased capacity to supply its current growing operation across both locations.
Meachers has taken delivery of both Volvo DHs and new DAFs, which significantly strengthens its fleet.

The move reflects a desire to strengthen and grow our fleet and this strategy is expected to produce significant operational benefits to the business.”
