European Services

With three new International Hubs coming online during 2016, Palletways continues to lead the way with daily departures with pre-defined lead times to the whole of Europe.

The international service has been designed to meet the increasing demands for the movement of small consignments of palletised freight within the European market sector.

The service is provided through our network of over 400 depots across 14 countries.

Your local depot can offer daily departures assisted by an integrated IT infrastructure which allows you to obtain reliable lead times as well as Track & Trace your consignment throughout its journey. Furthermore, they will be collected by your regular driver in their regular vehicle thus reducing the number of vehicle movements in/out of your business.

Collections can be made daily, with departures internationally the same day (with some restrictions).

Two primary service levels, Premium Service and Economy Service, provide an efficient solution for you, your customer or supplier within Europe, whilst our Premium PLUS service to Germany provides a market leading solution when your goods ‘just have to be there’.
