Palletforce has added DNA Express Couriers and NGC Logistics to its network.

DNA Express Couriers, based near Crawley, Sussex, covers the KT postcode area and has been working with Palletforce for the past 18 months.

MD Tony Bunn said: “Working with Palletforce has given us an opportunity to see the benefits of the network, and we are delighted to become a full member this year.”

Founded in 2008, NGC Logistics is based in Birmingham and recently opened a new depot in Buckingham (where it will be running for Palletforce covering the CV35, 36, 37 and 47 postcodes as well as OX15, 16 and 17). This is the first time it has joined a pallet network and MD Nav Singh says the move to Palletforce will help develop further growth.

“After nearly 10 years of success we feel we have reached something of a glass ceiling, and becoming a member of Palletforce will give us the impetus and collective reach we need to go to the next level,” he said.

In August Palletforce will officially open a £50m secondary hub development, capable of processing more than 30,000 pallets a night.

Palletforce chief executive Michael Conroy said: “Our ability to continually invest in the network enables our members to grow and that commitment to the future has attracted six new quality members this year.

“That investment has placed us in the strongest ever position and, with the super hub about to open, we have the perfect platform to drive further growth across our membership as we look to build the future together.”

Palletforce added Circle Express to its network earlier this year.

In January it was revealed that Shakespeare Transport was moving from Palletways to Palletforce.
