Palletways started in 1994 with our UK business based in Lichfield, Staffordshire. After 10 years of successful trading, the business then opened facilities in Europe starting with Nijmegen in the Netherlands, quickly followed by Spain, Italy and Germany and in 2018 we started a brand new network in Hungary. Today the business has an International business based in Switzerland which runs pan-European services within 24 countries, via over 450 depots between a strategically placed network of 23 hubs.
We pride ourselves in recruiting forward thinking people which has allowed us to continually innovate and change the way palletised freight is managed and delivered. This in turn creates huge benefits for our members which is why we are the express palletised freight company to be a part of.
In 2016 Palletways became the express palletised freight arm of Imperial Logistics and the business has continued to grow from strength to strength. Imperial Logistics has enabled us to strengthen our position in Europe, helping to achieve the goal of “European pallet network of natural choice” for the distribution of express palletised freight.
Imperial operates within 32 countries, employing over 27,000 people and is ranked within the top 30 global logistics providers. Listed on the JSE in South Africa, this African and European focused logistics provider, specialises in contract logistics, integrated freight management and market access services.
