Distribution firm Cross Country Carriers in Saxham marked its 35th anniversary on Friday (12) and raised more than £1,200 for Prostate Cancer UK.

It is a member of the Palletways network and was visited by Palletways mascot, a 61ft dragon shaped hot air balloon. It also held a half day of celebration events.

Jon Humphry, managing director of Cross Country Carriers said: “To reach 35 years in business is a real achievement.

“We have had to weather some tough economic climates, particularly in recent years, but the hard work and dedication of our staff has helped to make the business what it is today.

“We have always been dedicated to providing an efficient and effective logistics service to local businesses, helping them to deliver their goods across the UK and Europe, and we continually look for ways to improve our service.”

Cross Country Carriers currently employs 46 staff, handling approximately 200 pallets of goods each day. Having started with a single second-hand transit van, the company now runs a fleet of 27 vehicles and is part of Europe’s largest palletised freight network – Palletways UK.
