Currently their UK network comprises of circa 90 partners now including local logistics company FTS Group.
FTS’s rapid expansion in such a short time is a local business success story and cements their optimistic vision of providing more local jobs for the future. The major reason for deciding to partner with Pall-Ex was that both companies adopt the same mentality when it comes to looking after their customers and there is a real synergy with the culture and philosophies within the two businesses.
Adam Peters Head of Warehousing and Distribution said “Partnering with Pall-Ex has provided the platform to take our business to the next level. Our service proposition is second to none, allowing FTS to offer a vast array of distribution options. From the biggest household names to the smallest enterprises, irrespective of consignment volume the consistency of service and care provided to our customer remains of the highest order. The collaboration of FTS and Pall-Ex will allow the market to be challenged as we strive to raise the bar.”
