Palletised freight distribution network Pall-Ex appoint Cooper Parry to integrate IT systems

Cooper Parry appointed to integrate Pall-Ex's logistical IT systems

The UK's number one network for the distribution of palletised freight has joined forces with a leading business service provider to develop its award-winning IT services.

Pall-Ex has appointed Cooper Parry to supply IT services designed to optimise the management of all logistical tasks by integrating its existing systems.

Sean Sherwin-Smith, IT director at Pall-Ex, believes the IT system will play an integral role in the long-term success of Pall-Ex in UK and its expansion across Europe.

He said: "For Pall-Ex going forward, it was imperative we found the right IT solution - not only to streamline our business but to maintain our position as market leader.

"We were looking for a software solution to enable us to bring all our current internal and external systems together and would help us drive value to our customers and extended network.

"It blends not only seamlessly into our current system, but will further improve our ability to orchestrate the movement of freight in our network, allowing unprecedented control of the flow of information, goods and funds.

"More crucially, it means we can focus on what we do best and concentrate on the day-to-day running of Pall-Ex."

Andrew Geer, IT partner at Cooper Parry, added: "Cooper Parry IT Solutions used Microsoft Dynamics NAV and developed a web-based real time system in order to drive efficiency across all of Pall-Ex's operations and supply chain management in the UK and across Europe.

"We have developed a strong working relationship with Pall-Ex over the last few years and we hope that this new contract will allow us to continue to work closely to help the company maintain its position as market leader."
