PALL-EX, the European palletised freight network owned by Hilary Devey of TV's Dragons' Den fame, has bought Launceston-based haulage firm Intercounty Distribution.

Commenting on the announcement, Pall-Ex's managing director Adrian Russell said: "The opportunity was presented to us after Intercounty's managing director Nick Coombes announced his retirement earlier this year.
