In conjunction with its German network partner Online Systemlogistik, Palletforce is starting its ALLNET service with Germany – the largest European bilateral trade market.
Palletforce is a member of ALLNET, the Alliance of Networks including Palet System in France, One Express in Italy and ONLINE Systemlogistik in Germany.
"It is very exciting to see our strategy for European expansion continuing to progress as we introduce our third new continental service within the past 12 months," said Michael Conroy, Chief Executive of Palletforce.
"This new market leading German service is a fantastic addition to our European offering and will further strengthen our position as the UK and Europe’s leading palletised distribution network.
"Adding this quality, value service also gives our existing UK members universal access to the best and fastest services, giving them more opportunities to expand and attract new business."
The new Palletforce ALLNET German service will launch on February 3 with direct connections between hubs in Burton and Schlitz and a direct express pallet service for imports and exports with a 48 hour door-to-door service.
All deliveries made using the German service will be fully tracked using Palletforce’s bespoke IT system, Alliance, and its innovative ePOD (electronic Proof Of Delivery) giving our customers complete visibility.
It is the latest step in Palletforce’s strategy for European expansion and follows the introduction of direct services to Benelux and Italy in the past year.
