With manufacturers and distributors increasingly scrutinising every area of cost in view of the global economic downturn, Palletline’s European palletised distribution service introduced earlier this year is already providing businesses with a range of benefits from cost savings through to improved service offerings.
Designed around fast, reliable and cost effective pallet distribution services both into and from continental Europe, the service is linking every corner of the Eurozone. From a single pallet to a UK destination through to full loads into the further reaches of the European hinterlands, Palletline now provides a comprehensive range of services across 30 countries, adding significant value to any supply chain.
With regular, scheduled departures to and from 30 countries at frequencies ranging from daily to weekly dependent upon demand, deliveries within Europe are completed by an established network of European partners, with full freight visibility every step of the way. Imported consignments transit via Palletline’s UK network to meet delivery deadlines.
“Palletline’s service innovations have proved an important route for volume growth in recent years, and Palletline Europe is no exception to this rule,” confirmed Kevin Buchanan. “Our key USPs include set departure schedules guaranteeing total reliability, transparent consignment tracking and competitive rates, whatever the size or weight. We promise no hidden or additional charges such as currency or fuel surcharges, and our entire network can provide customers with instant quotes, on a per pallet or best value volumetric basis.”
Demand is already exceeding initial estimates as businesses seek out more competitive ways of moving goods, and Palletline expects the European links to generate significant additional business in 2012.
Hand in hand with the new European service, Palletline is continuing to develop its London site as an effective ‘gateway’ for European hauliers, providing them with the option of much more cost efficient solutions for UK distribution. A growing number of European-based distribution companies are now using the gateway as a convenient entry point to access the Palletline network, rather than running their own vehicles for small consignment deliveries across the UK.
Companies across the UK and Ireland can request quotes and access the new European service via their local Palletline Member Company. For details on Palletline Member companies in different areas, go to www.palletline.com
