Pallet networks have grown and evolved significantly since the early days when their key focus was single pallets and small consignments which the freight industry found difficult and expensive to manage. Today, the market leaders in this field provide sophisticated and comprehensive logistics solutions tailored to meet the needs of their customers, backed up by advanced technology designed to streamline systems to ensure fast, efficient and reliable services.
Bringing together a powerful national network of professional warehousing and distribution companies, palletised distribution specialist Palletline Plc has innovated and developed its technology to match the changing requirements of the retail market.
Palletline can move anything, from a single pallet through to a full load, with overnight and economy options, delivering next day or in line with customer requirements. The organisation’s nationwide network is made up of established distribution companies with a professional and focused approach. They bring to the party a real understanding of needs of the market and, perhaps most importantly, a detailed knowledge of the geographical areas they cover.
As a result, Palletline’s service offering has expanded over the years beyond next working day deliveries to all major conurbations throughout the UK, with a 48/72 hour economy service option, to include multi pallet/groupage services for cost effective solutions and even the innovative City 24 ‘congestion busting’ service, consolidating loads and delivering in bulk to specified urban locations.
With the retail market in mind, Palletline also offers weekend and bank holiday deliveries as well as added value services including timed delivery and collections; a vital issue for busy regional distribution centres. Here, too, Palletline Member Companies are increasingly requested to provide consolidated services to reduce the load at peak times.
Early in 2011, Palletline expanded its services still further with the introduction of partnering arrangements which has given the company the scope to provide express deliveries to all major European destinations, covering a total of 30 countries.
Today, Palletline focuses on delivering services that add value and real benefits to customers’ supply chains. In addition, investment in technology across the network means that all customers benefit from industry leading track and trace systems, together with processes for instant communication of accurate proof of delivery information.
