PALLETFORCE is forging forward with its European expansion plans by joining a ‘giant’ alliance of the continent’s leading pallet networks.
By becoming part of ALLNET (Alliance of Networks), Palletforce joins Palet System in France, One Express in Italy and ONLINE Systemlogistik in Germany – placing ALLNET as a European leader in palletised freight distribution.
Last year ALLNET distributed 9 million pallets, and with Palletforce as its new UK partner, the European networks will have 18 central hubs and 314 delivery centres covering 32 countries.
What makes this European alliance unique is that it is made up of quality networks with strong links between each national domestic network – guaranteeing a seamless palletised distribution throughout Europe.
"Pooling our resources with three of Europe’s leading pallet networks creates a strong, unified, quality pan-European service," said Michael Conroy, Chief Executive of Palletforce.
"Our ALLNET partners are all industry leaders within their own countries and by aligning ourselves with networks with the same ethos of consistent high quality service we are fulfilling our European growth strategy.
"By enhancing our European offering and coverage across the continent we are further strengthening Palletforce’s UK network and supporting our members to expand their services."
ALLNET brings together 17,000 vehicles, 28,000 employees and deliver 36,000 pallets every day – ensuring the alliance is a sector leader.
Joining ALLNET is the latest step in Palletforce’s European growth plans and follows the launch of its first direct Italy service late last year after becoming partners with fellow ALLNET member One Express.
