“We joined Pall-Ex because the mentality was different and we wanted to work with the network, not for it. Unlike previous experience, Pall-Ex proved to promote cooperation between its network and the hub.

"Being part of the network has opened up the market place and allowed us to appeal to a much larger customer base.

"Membership to the Pall-Ex network made it a lot easier for us to ride through the recession. The network gave us significant customer spread and lowered our risks, putting us in control. We became far less dependent on certain customers. The key to our growth has been our capacity to sell. Being part of the network has opened up the market place and allowed us to appeal to a much larger customer base. Through the network, we can offer to transport anything that goes on a pallet, regardless of the size of our customer. We even collect from farms or private homes and can deliver anywhere in the country”.

Managing director

2. PMB Pallet Express

 

"PMB Pallet Express has worked with Pall-Ex for a number of years. We trust Pall-Ex because we believe that its standard of service is greater than that offered by other networks, and because Pall-Ex understands our business and needs.

“Pall-Ex makes sense for PMB. Its financial stability means that the business is secure, but the network is also not afraid to look forward and adapt quickly in this volatile industry.

“The fact that Pall-Ex is owned by an individual means that key decisions are made much faster than they would be if it was a co-operative. It also has an intricate awareness of its own brand and ours.

"Pall-Ex has enabled PMB Pallet Express to grow safely, and with solid foundations to make sure our business remains stable going forward.”

Managing director

3. John Bywater Transport Ltd

 

 “We’ve been a Pall-Ex member for seven years, previously working within another pallet network.

“At John Bywater Transport, we firmly believe that communication is the key to customer satisfaction, and that poor communication is detrimental to the smooth day-to-day running of any business and, in turn, its success. We needed to find a pallet network that was made up of members and individuals who shared this belief, and Pall-Ex was the perfect fit.

 “As part of Pall-Ex we managed to ride out the recession, and the wide range of services that we can offer thanks to the network has allowed us to expand our customer reach; as well as generate further income through storage and warehousing, which was a service we did not offer prior to our membership.

“It’s great to be able to work with other like-minded hauliers, and to be a part of a network that supports each other and goes out of its way to assist each other’s growth.”

Hannah Bywater,
Depot principal

4. Premier Palletised Ltd

“We joined the Pall-Ex network in 2004. After extensively researching the pallet networks available for membership, it became clear to us that Pall-Ex was the one that we wanted to be a part of.

“At that time Pall-Ex, unlike other networks, had already identified the differences that there were when it comes to London deliveries and the unique challenges that London hauliers face. Pall-Ex had bespoke solutions to combat those challenges, rather than sticking to a “one size fits all” mentality.

“What we really like about Pall-Ex is that it’s a network that works with its hauliers, and we know that we have a voice and will be listened to. We’ve seen many changes in legislation and operating processes since our membership began; from the introduction of congestion charges, to the London 2012 Olympics and continuous issues with parking at delivery points.

“Together with Pall-Ex, we’ve been able to refine our operations to ensure that our services have remained unrivalled within London; which has allowed our customer base to continue to grow and our business to thrive.”

Adam Hopcroft,
Managing director

5. South Link Ltd

“Our partnership with Pall-Ex started in 2014, and since then we’ve benefited from the ability to offer our customer-base a more dynamic and complete logistics solution.

“Through the network, our range of services has grown and we’ve been able to incorporate solutions that we previously weren’t able to offer; the Retail Plus service in particular is a real benefit to many of our customers.

“It was clear to us when we were first approached by Pall-Ex that the network had a clear, strong vision for the future of the network and all of its members, and we were keen to be a part of its plans.

“We were welcomed with open arms by the other Pall-Ex members and everyone supported us whilst we found our feet. It’s great to be a part of something that is so driven on partnership and collaborative efforts.”
