Pallet-Track in continental deal with Hellmann

Pallet-Track is to expand into continental Europe after signing a partnership deal with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK.

Operations are due to start in  September. Pallet-Track will have access to a Hellmann’s network across 56 countries. And Hellmann benefits from access to some target UK markets.

Pallet-Track managing director Nigel Parkes said: “Hellmann is a multi-billion Euro family – owned business that is in the top 30 largest freight companies in Europe. It works with some of the biggest international household brands in almost 60 countries and has the scope and the vision to work with us across those European markets that we want to reach. In return, we can offer Hellmann a strong network, the right technology and access to the key UK markets it wants to reach,” he said.

The deal will enable Hellmann to service three additional London postcodes and will generate approximately 25,000 deliveries per annum within the Hellmann global network.

Matthew Marriott, commercial director of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK, said: “The new partnership with Pallet-Track provides an exciting opportunity for Hellmann to really capitalise on its growing global network. After a positive start to the year, and the continued success of our Colnbrook distribution depot, we’re confident that the relationship with Pallet-Track will only enhance our service levels. A lot of research was carried out and we made the decision that the partnership was perfectly suited to Hellmann.”
