Last week, Pall-Ex Romania opened its innovative new hub in Sibiu, with a capacity to handle over 1 million pallets per year.
The operational efficiency created by the cross-dock design allows Pall-Ex Romania to prepare for future growth and exceed its current pallet volumes.
The 6,000m2 terminal has 24 gates, which allows for the loading and unloading of 24 trucks at once. 3,000m2 of internal space boasts an open parking area, exclusively for trucks waiting to be loaded and unloaded, increasing operational efficiency.
The advantages for streamlined operation and improved efficiencies will benefit not only Pall-Ex’s membership but also their customer base.
Danor Ionescu, CEO of Pall-Ex Romania comments, “We are really proud of our new hub and the hard work that went into the design of the building. We utilised our knowledge of the industry to sketch, design and finally build our new distribution hub and we look forward to seeing the benefit this brings not only Pall-Ex Romania but also all our stakeholders.
“The new hub is representative for both our mission, to be the quality network of choice and the way in which we do things.
"We cannot wait for our members and our customer base to reap the benefits of the new hub.”
Pall-Ex Romania’s new hub will also play host to the company’s main offices.
Employees will enjoy modern and efficient office spaces, with many facilities designed to encourage collaborative work. Pall-Ex Romania prides itself on collaboration, and staff are encouraged to interact as much as possible in order to boost interdepartmental communication and find long-term solutions that benefit the entire network.
Pall-Ex has an innovative business model, which enables its network of local transporters and distributors to deliver palletised goods throughout Romania within 48 hours. The company prides itself on a quality service with 98.5% of all goods delivering on time in full (OTIF).
In addition to this, Pall-Ex owns the biggest network of warehouses in the country, with 38 locations.
Since its inception in 2011, Pall-Ex Romania has transported more than 2 million pallets throughout the country, and with the opening of the new hub, it aims to reach 2.7 million by the end of 2019.
