Willmotts Transport has been a member of the fastest growing pallet network in the United Kingdom, Palletforce, for over 10years.
This October Palletforce will be officially opening the latest expansion of their service in the form of a £50 million, 620,000 sq ft bespoke facility. Combined with the 600,000 sq ft hub building they already occupy on the same site, Palletforce are naming their site the ‘SuperHub’.
The ‘SuperHub’ could see the introduction of 70 new jobs at Palletforce and a estimated 700 across the members, of which we are one. The hub will now have the capacity to handle over 30,000 pallets a day, making it the largest drive through distribution centre in Europe.
As part of the investment in their service Palletforce are looking to upgrade their ePOD systems by Christmas, introduce a forklift that takes pictures of pallets every time they are moved, a smart phone app and introduce more coverage across Europe and Asia in the coming months. All of which were announced yesterday at their annual sales meeting (13 September 2017).
If you have any questions about the ‘Superhub’, or any of the investments being made contact the office on 01749880333.
