The online portal allows us see the current status of all of our consignments in real-time plus the new one-hour ETA function means our staff have access to time critical information which is important when responding to customer enquiries.”

Steve Waterhouse of Palletways said: “Winning this business means we will be using expertise and resource from a number of our members, including H&M Distribution in Bedfordshire, who will undertake trunking from Lecico to our hub in Greenford and also Palletways London who will transport a number of trailers everyday to headquarters in the Midlands to assist with balances.”
