About the employer

Pall-Ex Group is a palletised freight distribution company. The Pall-Ex hubs sit at the core of our hub-and-spoke model. The entire operation is designed to maximise efficiency to serve clients better, increase profitability and create savings that members can pass on to their own clients - retaining their business and contributing to their own growth. Members collect palletised freight from their customers throughout the day, organising and consolidating it at their own depot. This is then line-hauled to the Pall-Ex hub, with vehicles arriving at pre-defined time slots. Their outbound pallets are offloaded, and their inbound freight loaded onto the same vehicle, which then returns to the member’s own depot. The freight is then broken down at the member’s own depot onto smaller vehicles for deliveries to final local destinations including businesses, factories, farms and homes.
