Palletways, the largest dedicated provider of express palletised freight distribution in Europe, has unveiled a new hub in Naples to enhance its service in Southern Italy. And already it has broken the record for the most successful first night of a Palletways operation throughout mainland Europe and the UK.
Palletways launched a pallet network in Italy in 2002 and it currently comprises of 50 plus independent transport companies, known as members, who use each others' resources to deliver goods via a central hub in Bologna.
Having collected earlier in the day from their local customer base, all Palletways Italia members trunk their goods into the central hub facility where they are then processed and sorted into designated delivery areas using leading edge information technology.
Members' vehicles then return to their local depot with the goods they have been assigned to deliver on behalf of the network and from here they are despatched to their final delivery points. Bar-code technology and a consignment track and trace facility monitor the goods throughout the whole process.
Says Adam Shuter, European Development Director: “Our operation in Italy continues to go from strength to strength and the hub at Naples will enable us to offer businesses in the South a dedicated regional operation, thereby enhancing our customer service further in the area.”
Palletways Italia offers a range of express distribution services for small consignments of palletised freight across the country, including next day, timed delivery options, and Economy 2 to 3 days.
