EV Cargo’s Palletforce continues to unlock profitable growth opportunities for its members after launching five new international services to Aegean and Baltic countries.
The routes to Greece, Turkey, Latvia, Lithuania and Croatia bring the number of direct international services operated by Palletforce to 30, with the prospect of a further 10 countries being added in the next few months.
The investment mirrors unprecedented growth in international volumes for the network, which have risen 30 per cent annually. This follows Palletforce winning a National Business Award for enabling growth and the appointment of David Breeze as commercial and international director last month to further develop international networks.
Palletforce has identified international freight as being the most profitable for its members and it continues to provide a competitive advantage by connecting its member businesses to international trade and long-term revenue opportunities.
Members benefit from one central hub, for both domestic and international freight, a concise pricing structure and sector-leading technology, giving their customers the confidence of being able to track and trace consignments through one unified system.
David Breeze, Palletforce’s commercial and international director, says: “We are now giving members access to more international markets than ever before, reinforcing existing services and developing new ones. International products are profitable for members and open up new revenue opportunities with the back-up of Palletforce’s award-winning infrastructure and technology.”
Michael Conroy, Palletforce chief executive, added: “Palletforce continues to invest across the network by connecting members and their customers to new international markets as part of EV Cargo. The result is the continued delivery of commercial benefits and growth opportunities for members and, by working side-by-side with the best international partners, providing them with a competitive advantage to power further stability and growth.”
