Pall-Ex flies to the Canaries

[ July 10, 2012   //   ]

Pall-Ex Iberia is to extend its service to the Canary Islands, the operator announced on the first anniversary of its operations in Spain and Portugal. Launched in June 2011, Pall-Ex Iberia has a central hub in Madrid and serves mainland Spain and Portugal, as well as the Balearic Islands, where it became the first network of its kind. It has grown its network to include 33 leading hauliers and handled over 100,000 pallets and pallet volumes are now over 750 every night.
Pall-Ex Iberia managing director Enric Estruch explains: “We are now in a position to start operating in the Canary Islands, which opens up a host of further possibilities for us. The network is already helping to drive down costs for manufacturers, importers and distributors in the Iberian Peninsula and there is no reason why similar methods of operation and the subsequent benefits cannot be transferred here.”
Pall-Ex Iberia is one of three European networks operated by UK-based Pall-Ex, working alongside Pall-Ex Italia and Pall-Ex Romania. Pall-Ex France will go into operation within the next 12 months and there are plans to sign further national partners by the end of the year and to continue to increase coverage in Germany, Scandinavia and Turkey, as well as other areas of the continent and beyond.
