Palletline is the UK’s first palletised freight distribution company. It’s now the only network owned wholly by its members. Its carefully selected members, who are predominantly family-owned transport companies, work collaboratively to provide the best possible services to customers across the UK and Europe.
Following a change of personnel within the IT team, Palletline’s leaders felt they needed a new approach. After a number of discussions, they appointed David Beck of Freeman Clarke to work with the team.
David is developing a new IT strategy that matches the business and its members’ desire to maintain the position as the UK’s leading pallet distribution network. For example, David moved the core business applications into cloud-hosted services, delivering better value, performance, and stability. They’re now reviewing the technology across the business to ensure it is meeting expectations and moving to the more appropriate platforms as needed.
David’s strategy was well-received both by the business and its members, and it’s instrumental to future business plans.
Operations Director Richard Gutsell commented:
‘David is very professional and pragmatic. He’s a calming influence, generating innovative ideas from his extensive knowledge of current and developing technologies. David is very thorough and detailed in all aspects from inception to delivery. David and the Freeman Clarke fractional model served us very well’.
