Now Pall-Ex goes pan-European too

[ June 15, 2012   //   ]

Hard on the heels of DSV’s announcement that it was to set up a pan-European palletised freight network, UK network Pall-Ex has announced the launch of its own European network covering 38 countries, including Turkey and Russia. 

Pall-Ex has already launched domestic networks in Italy, the Iberian Peninsula and Romania and will soon do so in France and Poland. Deliveries on Pall-Ex Europe could be as little as two days, depending on the destination. The operator claims that its pallet-based tariff will be more predictable pricing than dimension-based pricing and the service will be fully integrated with Pall-Ex’s TWINE IT real-time track and trace and online proof of delivery system.
The company’s managing director, Adrian Russell, said:“Now more than ever, customers on both a national and international level are looking for the most cost effective and reliable way to transport goods to Europe. We’ve created a competitive service that is based on the core Pall-Ex principles of efficiency and unrivalled customer service.
“Trade between countries is key to growth at the moment and we’re pleased to be in a strong position to help facilitate this and to keep freight moving across the continent. In addition, this new service allows our members to increase their own offering and strengthen their own customer-base in the process.”

In April, DSV announced details of its own-European service based on a hub near Stuttgart. It has already been operating a pilot system covering 17 countries and plans to step this up to 25 countries.
