Palletways Hungary, part of Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network, is celebrating record volumes and a growing membership base since launching in October last year.
The network, which started with eleven members from across the country, transported around 100 pallets a day in its first month of operation. Over the past seven months, this figure has significantly risen with Palletways Hungary currently moving around 300 pallets a day.
Further underlining its exponential growth, the network reached a significant milestone in April of this year, shipping a total of 20,000 pallets.
With its main hub in the western suburbs of Budapest, Palletways Hungary currently has a total of 15 members servicing routes across the country. Customers in the UK and in Hungary have access to a full range of domestic and international services including: a domestic next-day Premium service across Hungary, an Economy service and also morning deliveries. All of these services are provided with Palletways’ Track and Trace technology.
Peter Kovacs, Managing Director of Palletways Hungary said, “As a new addition to the Group, this is an important milestone and we’re incredibly happy with the network’s performance over the last seven months. We’ve seen a very positive response to our excellent level service in the Hungarian market. Our sector-leading technology and European-wide coverage means we can offer customers a unique package. We are looking to expand our import and export opportunities to and from the UK, Germany and Iberia. These regions have already made good use of the network so there is great potential for development.”
Luis Zubialde, Chief Operating Officer of Palletways Group said: “We’re delighted with the Hungarian network’s impressive level of growth. It underlines a period of extensive development for the Palletways Group, with the additional announcement of a new operating area in three Nordic countries last autumn. I look forward to supporting the Hungarian team as they continue to expand.”
