ONE of the world’s largest independent drinks companies has turned to Palletforce to help distribute its popular alcoholic brands across the country.
Global Brands Limited, which produces some of the UK’s most recognised alcoholic drinks including, VK Vodka Kick, VK Vodka, Corky’s Vodka Shots and Goldschlager, is using Palletforce’s new £30million distribution hub at Burton-upon-Trent to transport its range to hundreds of major retailers and wholesalers.
Kevin Hopkinson, Global Brands transport manager, said: "Our distribution operations are already run from Burton so it makes perfect sense to use Palletforce.
"The unique member network means we can effectively deliver our consignments, which often come in different shapes and sizes, instead of sending half empty trucks across the country which helps cut costs."
Palletforce, one of the UK’s largest palletised distribution networks, works with 100 plus transport depots across the UK make up the powerful Palletforce distribution network to serve thousands of customers, including many major brands and leading high street retailers.
Marketing and sales director for Palletforce Dave Holland said: "We are delighted to be working with Global Brands in providing a cost effective solution for the distribution of its world-renowned products.
"As part of Palletforce’s growth we are continually developing strategic and national accounts with major manufacturers and retailers.
"We are seeing an increase in companies looking more favourably towards using palletised distribution networks like Palletforce rather than dedicated fleets for improved efficiency and cost-saving."
