Pall-Ex, the European palletised freight specialist, has launched a revamped and expanded service that allows customers to arrange seamless international transportation in a single transaction.
Pall-Ex Connect further streamlines the business’s partner networks, in the UK, Italy, the Iberian Peninsula, France, Poland and Romania, to provide continental and global services.
Consisting of Connect Europe and Connect World, the former service option provides regular and cost-effective transportation of small palletised consignments to and between every single European territory.
Managed entirely by Pall-Ex’s industry-leading TWINE information technology system, real time track-and-trace visibility and constant contact are standard benefits, and the service features regular departures from each of the six UK and European Pall-Ex national hubs.
For UK members and customer, the service’s simplicity and flexibility means that just one booking process is required, making it just as easy for customers to book transportation between two UK cities as it is for their freight consignments to cross the entire continent.
Connect World, meanwhile, is a bespoke service option that provides worldwide shipping from the UK, via Pall-Ex’s established logistics partners.
With weekly departures from Pall-Ex’s UK hub in Leicestershire, Connect World utilises the same simple booking system as Connect Europe, but allows for a tailored solution to transport consignments, by sea or air, to destinations around the world.
Pall-Ex Connect is available for standard and Euro pallet base sizes, with five height and weight options ranging from quarter to MEGAfull, to provide a wider range of options for Pall-Ex’s customers.
“Improvements in cross-border technology have allowed Pall-Ex to take the success of our leading UK operational model and apply it on continental and global levels,” explained Pall-Ex UK managing director Cris Stephenson.
“The systems that we have developed in-house over the years now allow us to make the most of these developments, so that the service is efficient, reliable and cost-effective whilst also being incredibly easy for our members and customers to utilise.
“Many people are already aware of the environmental and cost benefits of our logistics model, but Pall-Ex Connect means that we can provide a regular international service that is flexible enough for the needs of businesses in 2014.”
