Palletways opens second German hub

[ October 31, 2017   //   ]

Palletways is to open a second German region hub in the south of the country, at Neufahrn, near Munich. The pallet network already operates a main hub at  Knüllwald-Remsfeld in the centre of the country while its site at Nijmegen in the Netherlands acts as a regional hub for the Rhine/Ruhr area.

The new regional hub in Neufahrn will also handle international cargo and is expected to accelerate general cargo traffic to consignors in southern Germany and provide faster routing and better value to customers across southern Europe.

Consignors in nearby Austria, Italy and Spain will also benefit from a more direct connection, with transit time expected to be shortened by a day on average.

Palletways Germany has at least 20 network members in the Bavarian region who will no longer need to travel to the central hub in for collections and deliveries. Seven network members are already connected directly to Neufahrn, with more expected to follow soon.
