RASE Distribution Ltd has helped to move a record breaking 5.4 million pallets around the Palletways UK network in the most successful year for Europe’s largest and fastest growing palletised express freight network since its launch in 1994.
The 2016 / 2017 figure beat last year’s previous record of 5.1 million by some 300,000 pallets with spikes in demand for members like RASE at Christmas 2016 and this Easter. Palletways also exceeded its largest daily volume in pallets recorded to 27,017 on 11th April 2017, (up by 9.4%) from 24,696 in 2015 / 2016
Geoff Hill (Managing Director) said: ‘Our team works extremely hard to respond to customer demand and move pallets quickly and efficiently through the Palletways network. The network is strong and resilient enough to take on whatever pallet volumes our customers want to move, even at the busiest times of the year. Technology such as the Palletways Digital Information Hub, which monitors pallet traffic, enables us to function as part of a well-oiled machine. The fact that RASE can offer services across Europe and provide an industry-first-two-hour time notification pallet delivery window in the UK has helped the network hit new pallet movement highs’.
