The Woodside Group, one of Northern Ireland’s most prestigious logistics businesses, has joined the Pallet-Track network.
An established company with more than 50 years of heritage, The Woodside Group, which includes Woodside Haulage, Woodside Distribution, Woodside Motorfreight, and All Route Shipping employs more than 500 staff and had a combined turnover in excess of £60 million last year.
Based in Ballynure, Co. Antrim, Woodside Distribution will cover the Northern Ireland postcodes on behalf of the 80-plus strong Pallet-Track network.
Managing director Simon Woodside said the decision to switch to Pallet-Track to commence shipments in July was a strategic one.
“We needed to simplify our pallet distribution services to and from the UK and, when we went out into the market and Pallet-Track represented the kind of network we wanted to be part of.
“We simply can’t wait to get started so our customers can experience being part of the Pallet-Track hub and market-leading technology infrastructure which will help drive greater efficiencies through our business.”
Nigel Parkes, founder and managing director of Pallet-Track, said: “Woodsides was a major coup for Pallet-Track. It is a major brand in Ireland because of its breadth of services and knowledge of the local market.
“The company was started in 1964, 40 years before Pallet-Track came into existence, so I know there will be a symbiotic relationship going forward as we learn from each other. However, fundamentally, our two businesses share the same goals – we both want to go the extra mile for customers in terms of service, transparency and value for money.”
