Leading pallet management company Whirlowdale Trading Company is widening its operations with major food producers and retailers and finding that its unique Palogistics service really does make a difference.
Staff levels have been increased to ensure that dedicated personnel are handling all aspects of the special pallet provision systems the company offers. This includes the management of one trip pallets, recycling or multi-trip lease, as well as the vital area of pallet procurement.
Whirlowdale recently appointed Roger Colton to work as a dedicated point of contact for its procurement on behalf of retailers. Roger's important role will involve working with the leading supermarket chains in the UK with a territory operating from Dundee in the North to Somerset in the South, organising white pallet collection and purchase.
The system is already working well and retailers are finding the support invaluable in terms of providing that vital link in the effective removal of pallets from their sites. With the trend continuing towards reconditioned pallets, food and drink producers are switching back to using this cost effective system in a bid to reap the benefits of major cost savings and avoid the problems of monitoring lost pallets.
Sales Director Jarrod Fisher explains: “Customers have responded well to the fact that their complete pallet requirements can be met by one company. By purchasing pallets for single or numerous trips, customers no longer have to worry about the costs and problems of handling pallets, many of which are inevitably lost, which adds significantly to the overall budget. Our experience lies in the handling and recycling of pallets and we are working closely with a number of retailers to come up with the most cost-effective solution for them.”
Whirlowdale has a highly effective network of pallet distribution centres with sites in the Northern, Midlands and Southern regions. This enables a quick and efficient turnaround of pallets and ensures high volumes are available from stock as required. Whirlowdale is one of the few UK pallet providers that can offer a comprehensive selection of stock as well as dedicated sales staff with a strong understanding of the industry and its requirements.
