Heathrow-based Acclaim Pallet Express (APEX) has joined Palletforce in a move designed to boost sales and volumes.

“In all my years in the business, I have never seen back-up like it: the flair and skill of the Palletforce team is without doubt the best in the industry.”

Palletforce said the move would help the network secure “important delivery capacity” in the capital: “The strategy for both APEX and Palletforce is long-term growth,” added Palletforce member relations director David Breeze.
