Hellmann-Pallet-Track deal ‘off to a strong start’

[ October 7, 2014   //   ]

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics reports a strong start to its new partnership with UK nationwide network, Pallet-Track. Volumes through the Pallet-Track network have risen to more than 10,000 pallets per night within days of the deal going live in September.

The deal, signed in April, extends the UK Pallet-Track network into Europe for the first time, giving it access to multi-modal services in 56 countries.

It also makes Hellmann one of the largest single inputters into the Pallet-Track network in the UK and enhances distribution service for the TW, KT and SM post codes in the south-east.

At Wolverhampton-based Pallet-Track, managing director Nigel Parkes described going into Europe as “a massive step, but never a gamble. We watched and waited for the right opportunity to make sure that our investment would make the best returns to the business – and that is immediately proving to be the case.”

He added: “Hellmann works with some of the biggest international household brands in almost 60 countries and has the scope and the vision to work with us across those European markets that we want to reach. In return, we are offering Hellmann a strong network, the right technology and  access to the key UK markets it wants to reach’”
