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
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.
