Fresh pallet supply contract
26 January 2016
Pallet pooling specialist, IPP Logipal UK & Ireland, part of Pooling Partners, has won a sole-supply contract from Kanes Foods, a supplier of chilled produce to major multiples. Previously, Kanes Foods dual-sourced its pallets.
Mark Harris, company director, Kanes Foods said: “IPP’s systems are easy to understand and administer, we enjoy ease of communication and believe we will benefit from improved value from the sole supply agreement. This new contract represents a joint opportunity to provide growth for IPP which could unlock further potential savings.”
Carl McInerney (pictured), country director of IPP Logipal UK & Ireland, commented: “Kanes Foods is a trade direct customer and over the past five years it has noticed a significant increase in the quality of IPP Logipal pallet deliveries from retail distribution centres compared to those from the previous shared supplier. It has found our online ordering system, epallet partner, to be very user-friendly and with its access to 24h reporting can manage its pallet balances easily.”
