Will UK distributors face a pallet crisis if no-deal Brexit?

Earlier this year, The Guardian newspaper raised an “unpalatable” warning concerning the distribution industry. It reported that in the event of a no-deal Brexit, palletised goods could be prevented from transiting between the UK and the EU due to a “dire shortage of the ‘right-sort’ of pallet to import and export goods”. “If the UK leaves the EU without a deal the overwhelming majority of wooden pallets, used to transport a vast range of consumer goods from breakfast cereal to pet food, beer and chocolate, will not meet strict EU rules designed to stop the spread of bark beetles and other pests.” (Source: The Guardian).

UK Organic Wholesalers are helping to develop total supply chains for organic

“The UK organic market continues to experience steady healthy growth, with sales increasing by 5.3%. That means almost £45 million a week is spent on organic in the UK” tells the Soil Association in its ‘Organic Market 2019’ report. (Source: Soil Association 2019 Report)

The report cites the growth within the organic sector to be fuelled by relevancy, as our culture shifts towards consumers making conscious, ethical choices on food and drink and other aspects of daily life such as waste, packaging and energy. “Organic’s integrity and values fit well with mindful consumerism, environmentalism, veganism and vegetarianism – trends which are dominating the market”.

PDX’s is now a Certified Organic Warehouse & Distribution Centre

PDX sees ‘Organic’ Growth (but not in the way you might think….)

So this spring our warehouse and distribution has quite literally grown…… Organically! As of March this year we were certified in the storage and distribution of organic goods.

It all a started a few months ago when we received an enquiry from a customer looking to warehouse and distribute pre-packaged organic products coming in from Sri Lanka. In order to bring organic certified products into the UK you need your warehouse partner to be organically certified too.

Sleep Easy, PDX’s New Warehouse Security System is Looking After Your Stock

Not content with our standard CCTV and having immediate police and fire response through our 24 hour remote monitoring station we have just installed a new ‘super-duper’ camera system. 14 new cameras have been set up providing high definition recording around the perimeter and within the warehouse. With excellent night vision capability, the new additions to the PDX security kit are second to none.

Reviewing Your Distribution and Warehousing Operations: Get to the Bottom of the Bottom Line

In today’s increasingly competitive and politically uncertain climate, there has never been a more important time for suppliers and retailers to focus their attention on the bottom line of their operations and to review or respond to any potentially destructive or negative influences on the company’s objectives and projections.

Many Operations Managers are rightly being asked to reduce costs or better yet, increase productivity and efficiency and lower cost at the same time.

Episode One: Equilibrium Products

Equilibrium Products came to PDX looking for a 3PL fulfilment partner to warehouse and distribute their equine based goods. Products include leg protection, therapy, sun & fly protection and nutritional food based packs.

They were previously with a large warehousing distributor but wanted to find a company with a more personable approach who they could work alongside rather than the old adage of ‘small fish in a big pond’.
