Carlsberg has inked a new deal with the European pallet-pooling expert LPR. LPR – La Palette Rouge (division of Euro Pool System Group), the Europe’s second largest pallet pooling operator has bagged a contract with the fourth largest brewer of United Kingdom, Carlsberg. LPR will supply pallets for all Carlsberg’s brands to dispatch products from its Northampton national distribution center to distributors and retailers across the country. This collaboration is established for several years with 600,000 estimated pallet movements per year.
“The LPR offering was like a breath of fresh air,” says Neil Harrison, Primary logistics head at Carlsberg UK. “The deliverance of competitive pricing along with a single trip fee structure makes workings out the costs quick and easy. Added to this, the strong customer-focused proposition, supported by an exceptional level of attention to detail throughout the whole process of tender, implementation and roll-out made the transition very smooth for all parties. We are really enjoying working with the LPR team and we’re secure in the knowledge that they are on the end of the phone to handle any new requirements or issues which may arise.
“LPR prides itself on its flexibility and adapting its services to meet the individual need of its customers,” adds Jane Gorick, managing director at LPR UK. “We’re absolutely delighted that, as a result, we’ve entered into this relationship with Carlsberg UK and are committed to delivering a comprehensive, bespoke service to suit its needs. The growing number of blue chip FMCG clients committing to LPR demonstrates that our approach of flexibility, quality, reliability and listening to the customers’ needs is essential in the modern business environment.”
