As Ireland’s largest pallet business, we have always been aware of the important part that we play in the national and international supply chain. With our customer base spanning a broad range of very varied industries, we have over the years humbly and painstakingly learned each industry’s specific needs when it comes to shipping their precious merchandise.
Infant formula, milk powder, cheese, butter, bread, fruit & veg, meat, confectionery, soft drinks, bottled water, liquor, medicines, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, computer components, building materials, fuels.
We have learned our individual customers’ businesses. We have collaborated. We have innovated. We have customised. We have collectively worked out what our customers need and when they need it. And we’ve delivered. A service underpinned by an unrivalled suite of quality, environmental, health & safety, sustainability and ethical certification. It’s more than just a pallet…
We’ve delivered. And we’ve taken away. We have taken away used pallets from customers’ backdoors. We’ve helped keep the country’s largest distribution centres moving. Used pallets from all over the world bringing in fruit and veg, potatoes, drinks, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, toiletries, clothes, car parts, machine parts, parcels, post.
And now, in March 2020, we find ourselves in the crucial position of “critical supplier” to our “vital products and services” customers as they strive to meet the unprecedented surge in demand from the fallout that this unwelcome visitor called Covid-19 has brought to our shores.
The humble pallet – a pivotal cog in a critical supply chain in the midst of a global pandemic.
This virus has not reached our door but has already infiltrated our minds, our thoughts, our actions, our workspaces, our homes. Precautionary Measures. Preventative Measures. Business Continuity Plans. Pandemic Response Plans. Pandemic Response Steering Groups. Up and down the supply chain. We are on it.
And we will deliver. Never before has the importance of the product and service that our sector provides resonated so deeply with us. We are taking every possible measure to ensure continuity of supply. Supported as always by our incredibly loyal, dedicated and hardworking team and in particular, our committed drivers who duly take to the roads every day to deliver. In every sense of the word.
We are acutely aware that we have a vital role to play as we navigate through this unchartered territory, through the surge and towards recovery.
It’s more than just a pallet…
