Palletways opens Poland central hub

[ March 27, 2017   //   ]

The Palletways Group has opened its new hub at Łódź in central Poland. Comprising 2,500sq m (26,900 sq ft) of distribution and logistics space, it will provide collection and delivery services to every postcode area within Poland for the new Polish network, which currently has 12 members. Palletways is currently recruiting additional Polish members, with four more expected to sign in the coming months as volumes continue to grow.

Łódź  offers daily connections with Germany and the rest of the Palletways international hub network, including Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and a full range of Economy and Premium domestic services within Poland.

Palletways chief executive, James Wilson, said it represents “another major step towards our vision of being the European Pallet network of natural choice for all customers across Europe. We have worked very hard to recruit the best possible team and the best network members to deliver service excellence to all.

“In 2017 alone we’ve added three new hubs to our network, including Bristol in the UK and Jaen in southern Spain, together with Łódź in Poland. We are also continuing to invest in award winning IT systems and enhanced infrastructure to continue to offer the best support for our members and customers.”

Managing director of Palletways Poland, Tomasz Cegielski, added: “The new Polish network offers an outstanding improvement to our Eastern European connections for our Polish customers particularly. In-bound and outbound volumes between Poland and the rest of our pan European network will move faster and more efficiently than before, which presents the opportunity for us to offer market leading customer service.”
