PALLETFORCE has achieved a new milestone in its history with the distribution of its 16th million pallet.
On November 15, the UK’s leading palletised distribution network reached the landmark figure 11 years after the first pallet was handled in August 2001.
It is the latest in a long line of accomplishments for the network this year, including investment in Alliance ePOD across the whole network, the inception of its direct Italian service and the development of its ‘live tracking’ mobile iPhone app.
Palletforce was also Highly Commended at the Global Freight Awards and IFW Awards, as well as shortlisted for two Motor Transport Awards and a St John Ambulance Awards.
“This is a very proud moment for Palletforce and a credit to the consistent efforts of our members and staff to provide a quality service that retains customers and wins new business,” said Michael Conroy, Chief Executive of Palletforce.
“I am sure there will be many more proud moments to come as Palletforce continues growing stronger, developing further innovations and expanding its routes and services.”
Palletforce, founded in 2001, is the UK and Europe’s leading member owned pallet network.
Palletforce offers a range of services for small consignments of palletised freight, including next day, economy and timed delivery options.
With over 100 depots and a £30m state-of-the-art distribution hub, the largest of its kind in the UK, based centrally at Burton on Trent, Palletforce can offer its customers the highest quality service.
Palletforce’s purpose built IT system called Alliance provides customers with an easy to use solution to manage their consignments. Alliance allows full visibility of customers’ freight from collection to delivery, including online POD information.
