• Staples and Pall-Ex begin logistics partnership

        • Logistics specialist, Pall-Ex, is set to transport over 80,000 pallets a year for Staples Solutions (Staples), following a new partnership.

          Staples will use Pall-Ex’s UK-wide distribution network during the three-year contract, assisting with deliveries into UK merchants.

          In order to accommodate the distribution, Pall-Ex has reconfigured a number of its double decker trailers into triple decker trailers, enabling it to better support Staples’ high-volume requirements, which include stationery, office supplies, printed materials and business consumables.

          Mark Steel, Director of Sales and Marketing at Pall-Ex said, “Staples is a renowned brand name, not just in the UK, but also internationally, so we are very proud to be associated with such a highly regarded company. 

          “Staples’ service level requirements and service expectations are extremely high, so we are delighted that they have chosen to work with Pall-Ex and benefit from the capabilities of our network. Over the last 20 years we have built a network of high quality members and, thanks to their professionalism and expertise, we are confident that we will exceed Staples’ expectations.

          “This is a significant new contract for Pall-Ex and, as leaders in our respective industries, it is great to be working in partnership with Staples.”

          Kevin Lewis, Supply Chain Director at Staples added, “Pall-Ex will give us the operating scale and quality that Staples requires, whilst still remaining flexible and agile enough to provide us with the focus and tailored response we need to meet and exceed our customers’ needs.

          “Its continued investment in technology and service improvements, coupled with a commitment to ISO compliancy, is incredibly important to our business. It is vital for Staples that quality and ethical standards are high right from product sourcing and warehousing to the delivery itself.

          “The benefits to Staples will be significant, due to Pall-Ex’s wide geographic reach, which will enable us to provide our customers with the shortest possible lead times and provide more local supply for our end customers. 

          “Environmental considerations have also been a key factor in our appointment, as vehicles completing final mile delivery will now drive fewer miles per pallet delivered, resulting in reducing the impact on the environment. In addition, the CSR, environmental and health and safety commitments of Pall-Ex are closely aligned to those of Staples, which is another key factor in our decision to utilise the capabilities of its network.”
