Pall-Ex looks for Turkey partner

[ February 22, 2012   //   ]

Pall-Ex is searching for a partner in Turkey to help it set up a palletised freight distribution network in the country. The new network would follow the model that has already been established in other countries. Along with the established Pall-Ex Italia network, last year saw the launch of Pall-Ex Iberia and Pall-Ex Romania, the first pallet network in Eastern Europe.

Pall-Ex’s project director in charge of the expansion, Anand Assi, explained: “Our principal aim is to create the first Pan-European palletised freight network, but we inevitably have ambitions beyond that too. Turkey not only has domestic products like textiles and minerals requiring domestic and Pan-European distribution but it is an increasingly important transit route.”

He adds: “We are searching for a Turkish logistics partner to introduce an innovative new concept to the existing market and lead our operations. In each location we’ve launched, national distribution costs for manufacturers, importers and distributors have been considerably lowered, as their goods have not required dedicated transport for each area, so this represents a real opportunity.”
As part of its continuing expansion plans, Pall-Ex is also currently seeking partners in Germany, Poland, Scandinavia and beyond.
