Palletways, Europe’s largest provider of express distribution services for palletised goods, is to expand its network into the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The company has announced two developments to its existing pan-European services. Firstly, it will be extending its geographical coverage by offering full services to and from both Czech Republic and Slovakia and, secondly, it will be adding two new pallet types to all of its pan-European services, with the addition of both a Mini Quarter Pallet and a Light Pallet.

Both new developments will be launched on Monday, September 2, 2013.

The Czech Republic and Slovakia will bring Palletways coverage to a total of 13 European countries, enhancing its position as the leading Pallet Network in the palletised freight sector.

Rachael Alpha, Managing Director of Palletways Europe GmbH, said: “The addition of the Czech Republic and Slovakia is part of our wider strategy to expand our geographical footprint in Europe and further enhance our customer offering. It also reinforces our position as Europe’s largest network for the express distribution of palletised goods.”

By offering two new additional pallet definitions – the ‘Mini Quarter’ and the ‘Light’ Pallet, Palletways now offers a total of five different standard pallet types on all pan-European services.

Rachael Alpha, Managing Director of Palletways Europe GmbH, said: “the two additional pallet types are the result of ongoing conversations with our customers across Europe. We are committed to offering the best pan-European services and our new pallet types mean that more of our customers will be able to benefit from Palletways proven service excellence, regardless of the type of freight being shipped”

The Palletways Group network now comprises more than 300 depots and twelve hub operations, through which it provides collection and distribution services across 13 European countries.

The Group’s distribution network is made up of independent transport companies who share resources to deliver small consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost effectively.

Palletways is an award winning palletised freight network known for innovation and technological development.
