A&D Logistics now works with a wider range of drink manufacturers such as Edrington, Diageo and William Grant & Sons. The business has also established itself in the seed potato transportation market and is making use of its exceptional workshop capability by not only carrying out maintenance on its own fleet of trucks, but also offering services for external clients.
