Sustainability Enhancements

Further strides in attaining sustainability goals as Wyvern Cargo purchases two brand new LST Double Deck trailers from Deker Trailers.

These additional extra length trailers take our LST to five – the equivalent of 40 pallets of trunking capacity per night to and from Palletforce.

This level of extra capacity is equivalent to one trailer per night not making the trip and therefore reduces CO2 emissions.

We remain committed to doing everything possible in our industry to reduce our environmental impact.

Fulfilment Service Offered to first customer

Following our partnership with Access Delta WMS in 2023 we are delighted to have successfully onboarded a first customer for order fulfilment, picking and packing.

During the Christmas period we were busy reformatting one of our warehouse units to be fit for purpose and have successfully inbounded all of the stock for a leading electrical goods supplier.

The area is complete with added security measures and using the Mintsoft plugin to Access Delta we are able to integrate seamlessly with their existing parcel carriers; including DPD, FedEx and DHL.

We look forward to offering the service to more customers new and existing throughout the next few years.

Fleet Renewal Investment

Wyvern Cargo continues to invest in the latest technology with the purchase of 8 new DAF XG tractor units from Adams Morey, Bournemouth.

The vehicles are the key component of the Palletforce network trunking operation into Dorset and Hampshire. Working all night taking freight to and from Burton-on-Trent before working throughout the day on the general haulage fleet.

Reliability is key to ensure great service to customers and therefore investment in the latest equipment is all important.

Wyvern Cargo are absolutely delighted to have been audited in accordance with the British Retail Consortium Global Standard and achieved a AA+ grading. This is the top level achievable and is the result of an unannounced audit in September 2023 at both the Poole and Christchurch warehouses.

Our storage and distribution processes are mirrored across both sites to ensure we operate to the highest standard possible.

Extra Postcode coverage via Palletforce

After much thought Wyvern Cargo has agreed to cover an additional eight postcodes for the Palletforce network. The new coverage begins in September 2022 with parts of the New Forest and South West Hampshire as SO40-SO45 and SP6 are covered overnight via the Palletforce Hub in Burton on Trent.

In January 2023 the SO16 postcode (encapsulating the Nursling Industrial Estate) will also be added.

The additional area is designed to balance our overnight trunking operations to reduce empty mileage and improve sustainability.

We look forward to offering our excellent service to the new postcode areas imminently!

LST Double Decker

Thanks to Allports Group (Deker Trailers) won 10th June 2021 Wyvern Cargo collected it’s first LST Double Deck trailer.

This extra long trailer allows for an additional 8 pallets to be trunked between ourselves and the Palletforce Hub in Burton on Trent and improves our environmental impact.

John Probert 

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce that our Founder and Chairman, John Probert, passed away on Thursday 18 February 2021. He was our guiding light since starting the business in 1975 and he was always a forceful, generous and invaluable presence.

John started the business from scratch and worked vigorously and endlessly to build the business we have today. His sometimes slightly eccentric and excitable nature endeared him to all.

Always dedicated to our customers and staff, he was very much respected both within the Wyvern family and also the wider transport industry.

Wyvern Cargo was his passion and he moulded it in his own image to be the best it could be. We will continue to offer our first class service to you which was so important to him and continues to be our philosophy and his legacy.


Rest in peace John

New Year, New Fleet!

The end of the Christmas and New Year period is always an exciting time as each year we say goodbye to tractor units that have come to the end of their contracts are replaced by brand new models.

2021 is slightly different as we move to a brand new fleet of MAN and DAF equipment which has seen 10 new single and double shift trucks arrive at our Poole depot.

Keep an eye out for these on the roads of England, Wales and Scotland through 2021 and beyond!

New Member of the Year Award 2020

Wyvern Cargo Ltd is delighted to have received the New Member of the Year Award from the Palletforce Network. Having joined the network from Fortec during 2019 we only became eligible in 2020 and are delighted to receive the award.

The change of network was a major upheaval for the business but customers  have since reported on excellent service levels and the change has proved to be a great success. Volumes have steadily grown from our customer base and deliveries in the local area have increased at the same rate.

During the Virtual Awards Gala Palletforce commented: “Congratulations to Wyvern Cargo Ltd being crowned winners of the New Member Award. After joining the Palletforce network in February 2019, the Dorset-based depot has gone from strength to strength. Congratulations!”

Thank you to Palletforce for this award and we look forward to celebrating in person when the time is right.
