Kammac has joined Pallet-Track, taking on the WA postcode that is being vacated by Abbey Logistics Group at the end of next month.

The operator, formed in the 1980s by MD Paul Kamel, has depots in Lancashire, Merseyside, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire.

It employs more than 350 people and specialises in contract logistics, warehousing, distribution, onsite logistics and contract packing, along with keg and cask rental and sale.

Kammac added that it is working to offer staff affected by Abbey’s decision to exit the pallet business the opportunity to transfer their employment to the company. The number this offer will be extended to will run into at least double figures, the operator added.

Wolverhampton-based logistics specialist Pallet-Track recently saw the 20 millionth pallet move through its network since inception in 2004.

Pallet-Track MD Nigel Parkes said: “We’ve been in discussions with Kammac since we knew of Abbey Logistics’ plans. Kammac is a first-class company which shares the same core values as Pallet-Track and wanted to be part of our network, so we are delighted to welcome them on board.

“We are thoroughly looking forward to working with them over the coming years and combining our collective experience to provide an efficient, value-for-money service for our customers.”

Kammac MD Kamel said: “We’re delighted to become part of the Pallet-Track network. This partnership will only strengthen our commitment to providing a complete logistics service when coupled with our current warehousing, on-site logistics, contract packing and transport solutions.

“Pallet Track is a like-minded, quality-driven business who share our ambition to provide excellent service at competitive rates in such a challenging market.”

Pallet-Track opened a £10m northern hub in Ashton-in-Makerfield, Greater Manchester in August.
