Search Impex has released a 1:50 scale Scania Highline with Gray & Adams trailer and Thermo King fridge, customised in the striking livery of Grimsby-based Quayside Distribution

Established in 1997 as a fish transportation business serving, initially, just the Humber ports area, Quayside Distribution started life with three trucks (a Scania rigid, a Mercedes rigid and a Scania artic ) and one highly determined founder with a big vision – Mick Wilkinson.  As an ex-truck driver, Mick made the tough decision to stop working for someone else and take charge of his own destiny.

Continuous investment in the business from the outset, together with terrific drive and perseverance has seen Quayside Distribution develop rapidly.

Having initially aimed to cater for the needs and requirements of the UK’s fresh fish industry, the business has actually grown into the UK’s leading full load transporter of not only fresh, but also frozen seafood.

Based at distribution centres around the country, the operation has a commercial vehicle fleet which, today, numbers around 85 units and 120 trailers.  Quayside Distribution runs throughout the night collecting from all domestic ports and inland markets around the UK and delivers to a wide variety of outlets, including major supermarkets and their associated RDC’s (regional distribution centres), commercial catering outlets, restaurants and even fish and chip shops.  The Company also offers an overnight service to France, for onward distribution of fresh fish and seafood products to Belgium, Spain and Italy.

Models, available from Search Impex, are priced at £137 each (including UK delivery and VAT).  To check availability of this and other models, visit Search Impex website or call on 01332 873 555.
