Pall-Ex Group has launched a new streamlined European distribution service aimed at minimising the stress of transporting goods across the EU, by offering businesses a seamless solution for freight clearance.

The service introduces a gateway to EU countries, with end deliveries completed by Pall-Ex Group’s European networks, which ensures end-to-end tracking within the Pall-Ex network.

A key feature of the new service is decreased transit times, as clearance is completed in the UK under regime 40/42 - a method of shipping which streamlines distribution and avoids delays as there is no prepayment of tax at the country of destination.

The pallet network has pledged that the new service, combined with last mile delivery via Pall-Ex Group’s Master Licence Networks, will deliver the same quality service standards throughout its network of 700 European members.

Pall-Ex said the company’s network of operators, combined with its hub-to-hub scheme, offers comprehensive coverage across Europe, guaranteeing reliable and efficient distribution.

Sue Buchanan, Pall-Ex network services director, said: ”Pall-Ex Group is thrilled to offer this enhanced service, which simplifies the process of shipping freight to European destinations. With regular departures and full consignment track and trace capabilities, we are redefining the standards in freight distribution.

“Our smart border clearance and the elimination of stops for customs clearance ensure a swift and hassle-free experience for our clients, highlighting our commitment to excellence in European distribution.”
