One of Scotland’s leading distribution and haulage firms is celebrating a year of massive growth that saw it open eight new depots and create over 100 jobs across the country.
M&H Carriers’ expansion of its Highlands and Islands operation and move into Argyll provided the biggest opportunities in a year which also saw its depots in Dundee and Aberdeen thrive.
One of M&H Carriers’ biggest investments came with the opening of a new depot in Glasgow, serving Argyll with further satellite depots in Oban and Tarbert – as well as the opening of five satellite depots across the Highlands and Islands, allowing greater levels of service for those living in harder-to-reach areas.
Elsewhere in Scotland, the firm’s pallet deliveries – coordinated in Dundee – have increased significantly. Levels of two-man deliveries of large and bulky items in Aberdeen have also increased – including for national brands like B&Q, who hailed the Aberdeen depot the best in the country in late 2021. Depot staff chose to donate their prize to local children’s hospital charity, the Archie Foundation.
This growth has been supported by the signing of a number of long-term partnerships with major national carriers – allowing the firm to increase its fleet by over 50 vehicles, including 10 electric vans used for last-mile deliveries in Inverness.
The introduction of e-vans to the fleet is part of M&H Carriers’ commitment to the future.
