Acclaim’s New Pallet Distribution Partner: A Profile on Palletline

Monday, September 7, 2020

We’re pleased to announce that Acclaim Logistics is now a member of Palletline – one of the leading pallet distribution networks in the UK. This new partnership will enhance our existing coverage and offer our customers greater choice in terms of pricing, pallet sizing and distribution options for their palletised freight.

Established in 1992, the Palletline network uses its trusted network of 96 nationwide depots and 7 regional hubs to securely and cost-effectively distribute freight throughout the UK. As the only 100% member-owned network, Palletline is focused on service delivery and driven by the needs of the network rather than the requirements of third-party shareholders or finance companies.

Palletline was the first network to achieve the hat-trick of internationally-recognised quality, safety and environmental accreditations – with ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 accreditation. What’s more, they have consistently won awards including the prestigious Network of the Year award at 2012’s Motor Transport Awards, Team of the Year and Safety in Operation Awards in 2013, and the Motor Transport Safety in Operation Award in 2015 and 2017.

Palletline’s award-winning Contrado system is one of the most advanced consignment management systems in the pallet network sector, integrating seamlessly with each depot’s traffic management system to provide complete delivery visibility for customers. As well as comprehensive tracking capabilities, Contrado allows easy and fast booking of jobs and identifies potential delivery issues in real time, facilitating fast resolution and ensuring customers know exactly where their freight is at any given time.

From a service standard perspective, Palletline offer next day, 48-hour and 72-hour transit times, as well as timed, Saturday and AM deliveries, tail lift deliveries and a handball service.

In addition to domestic coverage, Palletline also offers a full import and export service to 29 countries throughout Europe.

Mark Robinson, Acclaim’s managing director commented: “We are thrilled to have joined the award-winning Palletline network and are now in the enviable position of being able to offer our customers an unparalleled set of solutions for their palletised freight”.
