Scotland’s Finest To Global Supply Chain Connector

29 April, 2024

In recent years, Bullet Express has successfully transitioned from being amongst Scotland’s most prominent logistics companies into a firm capable of connecting supply chains on a global scale.

Founded in 1990 by David McCutcheon and Gary Smith, Bullet Express began life as a same-day delivery company with the simple mission of becoming Scotland’s number one logistics partner. Over the years to follow, Bullet Express arguably achieved its original mission, becoming one of the most active and reputable logistics partners in Scotland; moreover, the company expanded its core capabilities into offering a range of logistics and storage solutions, including developing work through Pallex Group. As of October, 2023, Bullet Express underwent an equity backed management buyout led by John McKail, former Managing Director and present-day Group CEO of Bullet Express.

Initially joining the company back in 2020 as Managing Director, John McKail entered Bullet Express at the request of David McCutcheon to ultimately take the business to the next level and assist the company in unlocking its potential. Under John’s leadership, Bullet Express not only enjoyed significant commercial success in the years to follow, but also evolved from the position of being a prominent local logistics partner into a global supply chain connector with expansive logistical capabilities and infrastructure. Importantly, this has included expansion of the core fleet up to a total of 134 trucks and trailers in addition to shifting much of the firm’s business development activity into long-term, contractual, and strategic relationships.

“The strategy was to use the Bullet establishment, fleet, and facilities, but change the brand and point the business towards being more of a global supply chain connector. Effectively what I did was create five autonomous key business units within the company: Express Pallets, Contract Services, Aviation, Worldwide Logistics and Storage,” explained John McKail, Group CEO of Bullet Express. “The Bullet company now effectively connects supply chains by leveraging those resources. It’s not just connected externally, but there’s also co-dependency internally as well.”
