03 Sep 2019 Pallet-Track member ensures Brits receive their news in holiday hot spots
A high-flying UK firm is ready for business to really take off as millions of Brits hit the skies for their holidays.
London-based Pallet-Track member ELB Partners helps holiday makers stay informed by ensuring national newspapers and magazines are jetted out to them every day.
ELB, working with industry specialists Higgs International Publishing Logistics, runs a seven day a week operation transporting the latest editions to Heathrow and Gatwick airports to be flown out to holiday hot spots.
Managing director Peter Eason said: “A lot of holiday makers who go abroad still enjoy keeping in touch with what’s going on back home.
“It’s our job to make sure they can stay informed by helping deliver the national newspapers and magazines to all the popular holiday destinations.
“So, seven days a week we’re shipping the various publications to Heathrow and Gatwick airports – and I’m proud to say we’ve never had a failed delivery.”
It’s that dedication to service and total reliability that has earned ELB the prestigious FORS Gold Award for excellence in the logistics industry.
It’s also helped them win – and retain – prized contracts with top companies like Higgs International, which is the UK’s leading supplier of logistics and service solutions to the publishing industry.
Wimbledon-based ELB has worked with them since 2006 although the two firms have enjoyed a close relationship for almost 30 years.
Darren Starkey, business director at Higgs International in Purfleet, Essex, said: “We deliver newspapers, magazines and books to more than 110 countries around the world and we have used ELB for many years to handle our UK road transport.
“The UK transportation of time-sensitive media products is a very important element of our business and a significant amount of this volume is destined for airfreight so this transportation must adhere to strict Civil Aviation Authority regulations.
“In the many years we have worked with ELB they have never let us down and they have always worked closely with us as our business needs changed so I would not hesitate to recommend this company.”
Eason added: “We’re absolutely delighted to work for Higgs International, who are the UK’s number one in publishing logistics.
“We work extremely hard to deliver the best results for our clients and always look to forge close relationships with them for the long haul.
“Our long and loyal relationship with Higgs International is the perfect example of that, and long may it continue!”
