IPP Logipal's 'cool contract' with Franks Ice Cream

11 November 2010

One-way trip pallet specialist IPP Logipal has increased its presence in the frozen food sector after securing a new contract with Franks Ice Cream

Based in Ammanford, South Wales, Franks Ice Cream has been manufacturing premium dairy ice cream using traditional recipes since the '20s. It produces a range of ice-cream flavours, including a vanilla flavour suitable for diabetics, which are supplied to several entertainment facilities, supermarkets, schools and hospital.

Using its own fleet of refrigerated vehicles, the company also acts as a distribution partner for other leading food brands that supply frozen ice cream products to the sector including Walls, Nestlé and Mars.

With a surge in demand owing to an early period of warm weather this year, Franks Ice Cream was prompted to re-evaluate its pallet supply chain partner ahead of its peak seasonal trading period through the summer.

Having been dissatisfied with the quality of pallets from its previous supplier, the manufacturer identified that IPP Logipal’s one-way trip service provided the ideal solution with pallets undergoing regular quality control checks. This ensures Franks consistently receives high quality pallets, which reduces administration costs and minimises potential supply chain delays.

IPP Logipal makes pallet deliveries from its depot in Newport to Franks Ice Cream’s hub in South Wales where products are then distributed to its customers across the UK including major supermarket chains - Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Waitrose and health food retailer, Holland & Barrett.

Once pallets have been utilised, IPP Logipal arranges collections – simplifying the administrative procedure for the customer - then carries out thorough inspections to ensure the quality of its pallets remains high for continued use.

Franks Ice Cream director, Ronnie Dallavalle, comments: “During our busiest trading period it becomes increasingly important that we have a reliable pallet partner that ensures we can get our products from A to B quickly, cost efficiently and with the minimum of fuss.

“IPP Logipal’s high quality pallets, simple administration process and regular quality control checks ensure customers receive our premium products in excellent condition and on-time.”
