    Company Profile

    The Journey so farIt all began with a simple yet ambitious idea.

    Create a super-efficient, centrally located, state of the art, purposebuilt and highly environmentally friendly and pollutant free palletisedfreight distribution hub that would set a new benchmark in the logistics industry. Add to that, a highly motivated and enthusiasticworkforce and attract the best independent road hauliers in Britain asmembers - and what would be the result?

    The answer is Pall-Ex, the most admired and respected, award winning palletised freight distribution network in the UK - and now in the fast lane of growth in Europe too.

    Today, the Pall-Ex depot fleet numbers approximately 7500 vehicles. Every 24 hours, our 42 bay hub, centrally located near junction 22 of the M1 motorway, is host to approximately 300 inbound/outbound visits and were used to managing up to 17,000 pallets daily. This remains the only non drive-through hub in the sector.

    At the heart of Pall-Ex is acommitment and determinationto provide our customers withan unparalleled, cost-effectivefacility. This, above anythingelse weve done, has securedour position as the distributionpartner of choice for many ofthe UKs most popular brands.

    The development of our own state of the art track and tracetechnology and an award winning information management systemunderpins the robust IT backbone that powers our infrastructuread that our members can rely on to help manage their businessesefficiently and accurately.

    Now, the Pall-Ex fleet is an increasingly common sight on the UK andContinental European road networks. The UK, Poland, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Portugal are all daily stops for our drivers. Every week of every month of every year were helping to make doing business with a global market a whole lot easier.

    Its been a wonderfully rewarding journey so far - and as we look forward to the road ahead we hope youll join us.

    Pall-Ex - The road ahead beckons.

    Company Profile

    Pall-Ex in the CommunityHilary Devey, our multi award winning founder and CEO, has always believed passionately in Corporate Social Responsibility. Protecting the environment, supporting worthy causes and helping with local community projects are therefore all at the heart of the values we hold up as important at Pall-Ex.

    Much of her time is dedicated to charitable causes and other worthwhile contributions to society, helping to raise funds and awareness of many issues. Some years ago, Pall-Ex launched a Penny-a-Pallet scheme that resulted in regular, reliable funding to Transaid, which provides much needed transport solutions for developing countries.

    Young EnterpriseFor some years, Pall-Ex is proud to have been a patron of the nationwide Young Enterprise organisation, aimed at encouraging business innovation in young people and helping them to better understand the day to day operations of industry and commerce. Pall-Ex has supported the scheme not only with much needed funding, but also, again, in practical terms. Pall-Ex staff often help with out of school activities at local schools and colleges, and join competition judging panels.

    The Princess RoyalTrust for CarersThe Penny-a-Pallet scheme (of which Hilary is a trustee and patron) helps a number of charities, including The Princess Royal Trust for Carers.

    The contributions made by Pall-Ex and our members help the trust to fund its 133 independently-managed Carers Centres, which look after more than 310,000 carers throughout the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. Amazingly, some 15,000 of these are children, with an average age of just 12.

    Support offered by the trust consists of support groups at centres, respite day care clubs, training in cookery, managing finances, etc, home visits, funding for essential items such as washing machines. Pall-Ex staff and network members are encouraged to support our chosen charitable causes, by holding fund raising events and offering practical support, such as befriending carers.

  • Since 1996, the name Pall-Ex has lead the way in the UK palletised road haulage network and is now one of the most recognised networks on our motorway system today.

    By listening to and working with the 100+ network members and their customers, Pall-Ex has identified a number of innovative ways to respond to the challenges that face members and their customers alike. The extensive IT capabilities at Pall-Ex provide a technology backbone which is a much valued facet of the Pall-Ex/Member partnership.

    Now, 7,500 member vehicles and 5million sq ft of warehousing provide an unrivalled service to customers throughout the UK and Continental Europe. Customers who acknowledge our relentless innovation and development of valuable initiatives.

    Innovation & Technology

    As a customer of the Pall-Ex network, you have access to industry leading technology solutions to help you and your staff deliver better service to your customers and manage your day to day pallet distribution more efficiently.

    At the centre of our IT hub sits our core operational application TWINE. This features a host functionality including the ability to produce shipping documentation, consignment Track & Trace and POD retrieval.

    Using our web based shipping system, you can book jobs directly with your local Pall-Ex member, and produce network compliant documentation to ensure your consignments are visible across the Pall-Ex network. If you require your carrier to capture PODs using your own company delivery documentation rather than a Pall-Ex produced delivery note, we can comfortably accommodate this, enabling you to retrieve signed POD images (of your paperwork) via the web or for download into your own back office systems.
