Pall-Ex Poland in business

[ September 24, 2013   //   ]

Pall-Ex has opened its Polish network, Pall-Ex Polska, the pallet delivery specialist’s fifth continental network and its second in Central Eastern Europe.

The hub is in the Lodz region and logistics company KMC Services is principal national partner for the 19-strong network. Pall-Ex Polska joins Pall-Ex Groups operations in the UK and will also work alongside the four other European networks  Pall-Ex Italia, Pall-Ex Iberia, Pall-Ex Romania and the newly launched Pall-Ex France.

Managing director of Pall-Ex Group, Adrian Russell, said: Coupled with our endeavors in Romania, this steady start in Poland provides further evidence to show that the pallet network concept is one that is adaptable and of interest to the wider region. As the global supply chain continues to change and Central Eastern Europe continues to play an integral role in this; we forecast that Pall-Ex Polska will continue to grow and integrate itself as a backbone to the domestic distribution landscape much like we did in the UK, all those years ago. Pall-Ex Polska CEO, Katarzyna Chabinka said the new network had had a positive start and, after months of hard work, its rewarding to see the hub up and running. We have a solid initial membership, but my team and I will be looking to build on our good start, to increase pallet volumes over the coming weeks, months and years ahead.

The model of collecting freight, transshipping it at our central hub and loading it onto outbound vehicles means members return to their depots with new freight onboard to deliver in their own areas. This makes sense both financially and environmentally as well as provides our clients with a trusted last-mile solution. Pall-Ex is also in talks to launch networks in Germany, Scandinavia, Benelux and Turkey.
