IPP Logipal develops ''innovative solution''

07 September 2010

Pallet rental specialist, IPP Logipal has developed a dedicated pallet solution for Produce World, one of the UK’s fresh produce suppliers to major supermarkets

Produce World offers customers a diverse range of vegetables, and is an expert in organic produce. It supplies potatoes, root vegetables, alliums, and brassicas through a portfolio of names such as RB Organic, Isleham Fresh Produce, Rustler Produce, Solanum and Marshalls.

The company has a policy of providing products from a mixture of own grown crops, as well as sourcing from joint-venture partnerships and collaborative working with dedicated grower groups both in the UK and overseas.

To ensure an efficient supply chain, IPP Logipal works closely with Produce World’s nominated logistics providers, which deliver products using IPP Logipal pallets to the leading high street food retailers, and then collect empty pallets on the return journey.

This significantly increases vehicle utilisation, whilst reducing associated food miles and CO2 emissions. With over half a million pallet movements a year, Produce World needs a competitively priced service that is both flexible and reliable.

Stephen Bowdler, Group Procurement Manager at Produce World, says: “We needed someone to think outside the box and come up with a solution to meet our needs by both controlling costs and providing a high-quality service.

“IPP Logipal completely understood our supply chain and presented a service that really delivers on all fronts - quality pallets, easy administration and helps to control overheads in this tough economic climate.”

This type of service is particularly suitable for major fresh food producers or suppliers of chilled products where there are a minimum of 300,000 pallet movements a year to main retailers and a customer requires pallet collections.

IPP Logipal managing director, Phil Storer, comments: “It’s an innovative solution that can meet the needs of companies that regularly use high pallet volumes.

“Our policy is to get under the skin of a business and see where we can add value or bring a real improvement to pallet quality, cost management but with a service that involves simple administration from start to finish.”
