Palletforce partners with France’s Heppner

[ June 21, 2019   //   ]

Palletforce has partnered with French logistics company Heppner, to boost its continental coverage.

It is the latest in a series of collaborations by Palletforce, now part of EV Cargo.

Heppner has 70 regional agencies across France and a turnover of more than €700m. It will integrates its IT systems with Palletforce’s own Alliance system and will use Palletforce’s SuperHub.

Palletforce’s European development director Mark Tabor said: “Our partnership with Heppner means Palletforce members can offer cost-effective deliveries across France through a single distribution hub using one trunk vehicle whether the freight is destined for the UK or abroad.”

Over the last 18 months Palletforce has extended its European coverage from eight to 24 countries in addition to launching a global service.

Palletforce chief executive, Michael Conroy, added:  “By working side by side with European partners like Heppner, we can provide them with a competitive advantage and place them in a prime position for expansion. Members are really benefitting from a simple system that is easy to understand and use. They can use the same collection and line-haul vehicles as their UK deliveries, our pricing is more transparent than other networks and the invoicing process is straightforward and easy to manage.”
