Specialist mail service company The Delivery Group has announced it is working into the pallet market through a partnership with pallet freight company Pallet-Track.
The Delivery Group is investing in infrastructure and services as it expands its delivery solutions within its portfolio.
In the UK it is estimated that 28.5 million pallets will be delivered this year, according to the Association of Pallet Networks (APN), representing a 6.7% year on year growth. Pallet Track is one of the biggest UK players.
The partnership makes The Delivery Group a Pallet-Track shareholder member and will enable it to use the company’s national network for collections and trunking access throughout the UK.
Steve Stokes, CEO, The Delivery Group, commented: “Pallets represent a major growth market and there was a clear desire from our client-base for this service within our portfolio. We began the search for the very best national network to link our brand to, and, after months of analysis we are delighted to announce Pallet-Track as our chosen partner. Pallet-Track expertly fulfils our requirement for pallet provision whilst also enabling us to offer best-in-class delivery for the network into central London through our Bermondsey hub.
“This really is a match made in heaven as both businesses are committed to the highest level of service standards with an emphasis on IT for easy access, labelling, and tracking as well as industry-leading reporting and MI.
“We are really looking forward to presenting these new services to our client base and to gaining more and more traction in new markets through our ever-expanding sales force.”
