Freightport Logistics said it has than doubled turnover at its London depot since it became a Fortec member in June.

Freightport said it was approached by “several pallet networks”, before deciding to join Fortec at the end of June.

“ Joining a pallet network was not something we had considered before but now we see such tangible benefits. We have invested in our own fleet since joining the network, we benefit from greater flexibility for our customers, network rates and we can sell locally to others.

Fortec was acquired by fellow pallet network Pall-ex in August.
