Palletforce pledges £3minvestment to mark 20th anniversary
Distribution giant Palletforce is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a multi-million pound investment pledge. The Staffordshire company is investing more than GBP3 million to develop its distribution services, pioneer technology and embrace sustainability as it marks its milestone birthday. Over the next 12 months, the company will fully replace its forklift truck fleet to ensure each vehicle includes Palletforce’s award-winning technology and patented weighing, scanning and imaging capability.

“We will bring our members together and ensure the entire Palletforce network continues to work collectively, collaboratively and in the spirit of the membership to ensure our continued success.” Palletforce was launched on August 31, 2001. On its first night of operation, at a former aircraft hangar at Fradley Park, Lichfield, the company handled 524 pallets of freight from the initial 36 founding members.
Now part of global logistics and technology provider EV Cargo, the company operates from a state-of-the-art central super hub in Burton upon Trent, delivering five million pallets annually via a network of over 100 members.
