Helping to break records

Transport company Mitchell’s of Mansfield helped to move a record breaking 5.4m pallets around the Palletways UK network in the biggest year for Europe’s largest and fastest-growing palletised express freight network since its launch in 1994.

The 2016/17 figure beat the previous record of 5.1m.

Andrew Mitchell, principal at Mitchell’s of Mansfield said: “Our team works extremely hard to respond to customer demand and move pallets quickly and efficiently through the Palletways network.

“The network is strong and resilient enough to take on whatever pallet volumes our customers want to move, even at the busiest times of last year.

“Technology, such as our Digital Information Hub, which monitors pallet traffic and in-cab pallet label printing, enables us to function as part of a well-oiled machine.

“The fact that Mitchell’s of Mansfield can offer services across Europe and provide an industry-first two-hour time notification pallet delivery window in the UK has helped the network hit new pallet movement highs.”

Dave Walmsley, Palletways UK managing director, added: “Our members, like Mitchell’s of Mansfield, are the most important part of the Palletways UK success story and record breaking year.

“Dedication to customer service excellence and embracing innovative digital technology are crucial elements for us to match customer expectations and deliver even higher pallet volumes.”
