Focus on Palletways

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Palletways logoAcclaim Logistics is a member of Palletways, Europe’s largest pallet delivery network. We offer next day, economy, timed and Saturday pallet deliveries for full and part load consignments throughout the UK and Europe.

What’s a pallet network?
Pallet networks are co-operative organisations made up of groups of professional hauliers working together as Members, Shareholders or Licensees, providing cost-effective, nationwide, next day freight delivery services.

How does it work?
1. Hauliers operate locally to collect pallets of freight and return them to their depot.

2. Any pallets outside the haulier’s area are loaded onto trunk vehicles and transported to the pallet network’s nearest hub. In our case, this means the Palletways hubs in London and Lichfield.

3. Vehicles are unloaded at the hub and pallets are transferred onto trunk vehicles destined for a haulier who operates in the area the pallet is destined for.

4. Trunk vehicles return to the haulier’s depot with all pallets for delivery to their local area.

5. Hauliers operate locally to deliver the pallets of freight.

What does it mean for our customers?
By working collaboratively as part of a network, we can offer a more cost-effective, environmentally sustainable and operationally efficient service for our customers.
