Palletforce has launched a global distribution service which will connect its members to worldwide markets.
The company will specifically focus on Asia, due to investment from owner EmergeVest, an in-house service that the company said will be the first of its type in the sector.
Palletforce Asia Services provides the network’s 100 members with fast and competitive access to new opportunities around the world. With an emphasis on growing Chinese and Asian markets, the move is the company’s first step in developing Palletforce in China.
“With our investment in this exclusive new service, Palletforce is connecting its members to many exciting economies and markets – providing the platform to enable growth and fuel expansion,” says Michael Conroy, chief executive officer, Palletforce. “This is unique in the marketplace and gives our members exclusive access to offer a new worldwide service to their customers by combining a global reach with local knowledge and expertise on the ground.
“We are particularly excited by the huge opportunities that China and the Far East offers for our sector, and Palletforce Asia Services will provide a gateway for our members to establish themselves in these growing markets.
“We understand it can be a daunting prospect, which is why we are delighted to be working with Allport Cargo Services – an established Palletforce member. With over 50 years’ experience they are the experts in their field and will provide fellow members with all the support they need.”
