Premium Pallet Delivery Company in Mid-Wales & Shropshire
We regularly hear from businesses who are fed up with their current pallet carrier. Poor service, high damages and no communication, transparency or information on delivery progress or performance lets them and their customer’s down.
They come to us because they recognise Speed & Palletways are firm leaders in the area and can give a leading service.
Cheap is not always cheerful; and using a cheap carrier will bring additional indirect cost to your business. Some of this you can quantify; such as added time, damages and service failures. Most of it is not quantifiable, such as the harm to your reputation in your customers eyes that a poor service causes.
