Palletforce’s European expansion

[ November 26, 2012   //   ]

PALLETFORCE has launched a new direct Italian service after appointing Italy’s leading pallet network One Express as its strategic partner.

This tie-up between Palletforce and One Express, based in Bologna, went live on November 1 and offers a combined network of 174 depots handling some 4million pallets.

It is the first direct network-to-network collaboration in Europe for Palletforce and by bringing two leading like-minded networks together it sets the industry standard for European services.

“This new partnership follows the blueprint for our European strategy of aligning ourselves to country leading pallet networks to create a significant European footprint,” said Michael Conroy, Chief Executive of Palletforce.

“Our members are able to access the same services as their UK offering through Palletforce’s existing IT platform Alliance, allowing them to take advantage of the expansion opportunities in Europe.

“We specifically selected One Express as our Italian partners as they share the same values and operate in a similar way to Palletforce, offering a quality and value service for all, and we are excited at this new direction we are heading in together.”

The new Italian service includes day definite delivery and daily direct departures.

Earlier this year Palletforce appointed a new European Development Director, John Mckail, to enhance its European coverage.
