UK packing and haulage operator, International Logistics Centre, has joined Palletways, Europe’s express palletised freight network.
The family-run Group business, which was founded in 1988, specialises in transportation, shipping, export packing, warehousing and storage. Over the past 30 years, they’ve provided a range of services across the globe – working in Russia, the Artic, Antarctica and the Middle and Far East – and the business has won national awards recognising them for their movement of large gauge freight into the remotest areas of the Congo Jungle.
International Logistics Centre’s Palletways services, which will be offered from their depot in Newark, will also be international. From this depot, the company boasts a 50 plus-strong team and a fleet of Artic to 7.5 tonne vehicles.
Commenting on the decision to join the network, Andrew Morris, Managing Director at International Logistics Centre said: “While the business has been running for over 30 years, we think Palletways is a perfect fit for our new venture, especially after considering its mature domestic and pan-European networks, use of innovative technology and commitment to excellent customer service.
“Our family-run business values hard work, respect, commitment and teamwork and our workplace is characterised by the high energy, enthusiasm and effort of our employees. We’re looking forward to bringing this level of enthusiasm as we work closely with the Palletways team and will continue to provide our customers in Nottinghamshire & Lincolnshire with a first-rate logistics solution that is truly customised to their needs.”
Barry Byers, Palletways’ Network Development Director, added: “This appointment highlights the importance we place on recruiting the most experienced transport firms in the logistics industry. International Logistics Centre is a great asset to the network and we’re looking forward to drawing on their experience to grow our presence in and around the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire areas.”
