UPN Trafertir 1

United Pallet Networks (UPN) is to boost its route capacity in Spain and Portugal under a partnership deal with Trafertir Group.

The new deal will see Basildon-based Trafertir Group become UPN’s Iberian partner, providing a range of palletised freight distribution services to Spain and Portugal and helping UPN negotiate new customs requirements as the UK leaves the UK.

Trafertir Group specialises in road, sea and air freight as well as customs clearance and warehousing.

UPN MD David Brown said: “Both Spain and Portugal have strong trading links with the UK and this new partnership with Trafertir brings increased route capacity, competitive pricing and excellent services.”

He added: “As we enter into a new era with the European Union, Trafertir’s in-house customs department will provide expert support and ensure a seamless service for all UPN members and their customers. It’s a win-win partnership for both companies."

Stuart Bowden, Trafertir sales director, said: “Trafertir Group are extremely excited to be consolidating our partnership with UPN in this way.

“Both our organisations pride ourselves on high quality service and a philosophy of ongoing adaptation to both client and market needs.”
