Merseyside haulier SSO Logistics joins Pallet-Track

“Reducing our carbon footprint & boosting revenue by £1 million”
Rapidly-expanding Merseyside haulier SSO Logistics is the latest new shareholder member to join the growing Pallet-Track network, a move which is directly helping to create 12 new jobs.
 
And, apart from boosting revenues, the St Helens-based business will also be able to cut its carbon footprint through vehicle load optimisation and its close proximity to Pallet-Track’s northern hub – located just five miles away – as it takes over palletised deliveries in part of the network’s WA postcode area.
 
The family-owned business, which only started trading in 2013 and now provides a full range of national and international logistics services, is creating 20 new jobs, 12 of which are directly linked to becoming a Pallet-Track shareholder member.
 
FORS and AA BRC accredited in recognition of the highest-quality storage and distribution credentials in the food sector, SSO Logistics has employed new administration and warehouse personnel at its Merseyside head office, as well as drivers to execute the Pallet-Track requirements.
 
Commenting on becoming a Pallet-Track shareholder member, Peter Draper, one of SSO’s three directors, said the move was strategic and part of the company’s growth trajectory:
 
“Being so close to the northern hub and being able to reduce our carbon footprint was one of the main drivers for becoming a Pallet-Track shareholder member.
 
“Apart from the new jobs it has helped create, it is also boosting our revenue by £1 million.”
 
Pallet-Track CEO Caroline Green said:

“We continue to invest in our own delivery infrastructure and bringing in new ‘can-do’ shareholder members is part of that strategy.
 
“SSO has a lot of energy and ambition and an admirable track record of local, national and international delivery, credentials that are all-important at a time when volumes and demand for our services have never been higher. This increased demand is tempered with greater environmental expectation from the buying public.
 
“On this front, pallet networks have a great story to tell as they are a really green and cost-effective solution, helping businesses like SSO reduce their carbon footprint as well as realise their financial potential by helping to boost revenues – so that when they grow, we all grow together.”
