Pall-Ex Distribution

Since 1998 we have been members of the Pall-Ex overnight pallet system, offering next day or economy distribution for palletised freight. Members of Pall-Ex have to operate to a code of practice to ensure that a quality service is provided.

Using Pall-Ex we can guarantee next day deliveries and offer timed booking slots for a specified date. We use a range of sized vehicles to make sure we can make all deliveries straight to the storeroom, even those with restricted access.

As a Pall-Ex member we can also offer our customers the ‘Retail Plus Service’, transporting from retailers own distribution centres, though the network direct to the retailers’ high street stores and even take away the remaining pallet and packaging waste.

In 2018 a new software was introduced called MyNexus, an interface portal that allows customers to book and track their own pallets and even access their PODs and delivery vehicle GPRS data. Longs of Leeds are proud to support customers using this system in line with our existing customer services.

How we protect the environment

At Longs of Leeds we do our utmost to minimise the impact of our operations. We work hard to maintain our fleet of modern vehicles to the latest Euro standard to reduce emissions – and operate at the lowest practicable level to mitigate the impact of noise and emissions on the local community.

Longs of Leeds is committed to recycling and choosing sustainable alternatives where possible. We will also seek assurances when choosing to work with third parties that their practices safeguard the environment as well.
