Pallex looks to Europe for expansion
8th January, 2013
The haulage group PALLEX headed by Dragons' Den star Hilary Devey is looking to expand into 11 countries by 2015.
The ambitious plan will see the Leicestershire business increase its overseas networks from 3 to 14 and create a pan-European operation.
The company already has a presence in Spain, Italy and Romania and will launch in France and Poland by March this year.
Pall-Ex uses a hub and spoke model, which involves each member collecting freight from customers and delivering it to a centrally located hub. This cuts distribution costs and helps reduce carbon emissions.
Manx Independent Carriers UK based sister company Walter Edmundson (Haulage) Limited is the Liverpool postcode franchisee for Pallex, offering next day delivery services throughout the UK via the network.
