Palletways, Europe’s fastest growing provider of overnight palletised freight services, today unveiled a new market leading 48 hour door-to-door delivery service to Germany as part of its plans to significantly grow its share of international traffic.
The Premium+ service, which starts from March, will for the first time deliver palletised freight direct to Germany in just 48 hours via the company’s recently established hub in Homberg. Previously, Palletways offered a 72 hour service via its hub in Nijmegen, Holland.
With the new service, small consignments of palletised freight are collected across the UK before distribution to Palletways’ hub in Lichfield, near Birmingham. From here, the goods are transported direct to the German hub in Homberg, where they are sorted for onward distribution to their final delivery points.
Tim Joernsen, Managing Director of Palletways Europe GmbH, says: "The introduction of this new service is part of a wider strategy to grow the company’s international business, which has grown significantly year-on-year.
Martyn Young, Managing Director of Palletways UK, adds: "This service offers both our UK member companies and customers the opportunity to open up new business prospects in the fastest growing market in Europe. It also further underlines our commitment to be the leading international pallet delivery network."
The new service is managed by Palletways Europe GmbH and is supported by their pan-European IT infrastructure.
