New Sales Manager Puts Acclaim in ‘Prime’ Position for Growth

John Prime

Having spent two years working from Acclaim’s depot promoting pallet distribution services on behalf of Palletways, we’re pleased to announce that John Prime has now joined Acclaim directly in the position of Sales Manager, and will be responsible for selling our full range of services with an emphasis on growing our APC overnight parcel distribution business.

With 37 years’ experience in the logistics industry, John is a fantastic addition to our sales force and will be playing a pivotal role in developing the business both locally and outside the Southampton area.

John commented: “I’ve been working alongside Acclaim for the past two years and during this time the development and evolution of the company has been dramatic. It’s such an exciting place to be and I’m thrilled about my new role here.

“Acclaim’s comprehensive repertoire of services means that there really is something I can offer every potential customer. From a pallet perspective, as members of Europe’s largest pallet network, Palletways, we have a 5-pallet footprint solution for every need, along with industry leading visibility solutions. Our membership of the equally IT driven APC, the UK’s largest independent parcel network, also means we can offer a premium domestic and European parcel distribution service. Acclaim’s unique partnership with Red Funnel further amplifies our Isle of Wight service, whilst our most recent launch, the new port-centric ETSF service (ERTS), is perfect for customers importing containerised freight through Southampton Docks.

“It’s this combined offering of unique services and supporting IT solutions that ‘walk the walk’, making Acclaim stand out above the competition. The new ETSF service in particular is a good example of this, as although other players in the area offer it, very few combine it with the option of a full pick and pack service and onward distribution anywhere in the UK or worldwide – it’s these key points of difference which make Acclaim a true one stop shop for logistics.”

Acclaim offer a comprehensive range of haulage, pallet and parcel distribution services throughout the UK and worldwide, including next day, economy, timed and Saturday deliveries and collections. With depots in Southampton and Cowes, Acclaim is the only operator to provide a door to door same day Isle of Wight parcel and pallet delivery service.
