The road division of Europa Worldwide is leaving Palletline in a move the network describe as “a mutually agreeable strategic realignment for the company.”

Europa will no longer be aligned to any pallet network as it shifts to focus on its own services and distribution network.

Graham Leitch, Palletline MD, said: “Europa have been an excellent and respected member of Palletline for many years, and although any departure from our network family is a sad one, it of course is critical that our members’ strategy is cohesive with our own and hence we fully respect their decision to exit the network”.

B&H Haulage will with immediate effect assume the majority of DA and SE postcodes previously covered by Europa. B&H is new to the network sector.

Simon Butcher, MD of B&H said that, “joining Palletline represents a huge step forward in our business development plans, and without doubt we see lots of growth potential for the territory”.
