With a history which now dates back almost two decades, the pallet network concept is now an integral part of the UK’s total road transport solution. Yet for Palletline, who pioneered the sector back in 1992 with the first ever hub and spoke network for palletised goods, the past twenty years has been a time of continuous evolution. With the focus firmly on innovation, Palletline remains totally committed to delivering added value for customers in every corner of commerce and industry.
Key to Palletline’s continued success has been the network’s flexibility, with the capability to tailor solutions to meet customer needs. From single pallet deliveries through to part and full loads, from flexible warehousing to order picking and distribution to destinations ranging from RDCs to domestic locations, Palletline provides total solutions designed around quality, reliability and efficiency.
Alongside industry leading service levels, Palletline offers a range of benefits. Targeted investment in IT means customers enjoy advanced levels of freight visibility and the confidence of knowing where goods are at any given moment in time. Access to digital signature capture online via the web portal facilitates earlier invoicing and associated cashflow benefits.
A bespoke system providing instant alerts on delivery or collection issues assists with improved levels of customer service, whilst an automated claims system means that any issues that do arise are dealt with quickly and efficiently.
The range of goods transported daily through the Palletline network is astonishingly diverse, illustrating the true capabilities of this flexible and affordable distribution system. From fresh eggs to Christmas trees, from cut turf to high value electronic items, from animal feed to engineering components, a peek inside Palletline’s three national hubs could give an overview of Britain’s current commercial heritage. Expanded links into Europe are now transporting goods as diverse as tyres for motor sport events and war memorials!
