Utilising the No.1 pallet network, Pall-Ex, gives you access to secure, cost-effective and carbon efficient palletised cargo movements. Pall-Ex combines the distribution capabilities of over 100 depots enabling next day deliveries to every postcode, every day.
Pall-Ex's network-wide ISO9001:2008 certification enables us to offer a unique quality procedure, ensuring each and every pallet collected and delivered within the network is processed with the same mark of quality and accountability.
1. Collection and consolidation
Customers' freight is collected by local Pall-Ex members and consolidated at the members' individual depots, strategically located throughout the country.
Early afternoon to early evening
2. Inbound line-haul to hub
Each member undertakes daily, inbound line-hauls, transporting consolidated freight to the Pall-Ex hub, closely observing a strategic processing schedule.
Early evening to midnight
3. Cross-dock sortation at the Pall-Ex hub
At the Pall-Ex hub, all incoming freight is sorted. Outbound freight is then re-loaded for line-haul to the delivering member's depot. Delivering members depart from the hub by a pre-designated time.
Midnight to early morning
4. Delivery to customer
The outbound member's vehicle returns from the hub, loaded with freight destined for local delivery. Freight is off-loaded and then delivered on time as required by the customer.
