Pallet network growth for Lombard Shipping


The last few years have seen Lombard Shippping’s pallet division grow significantly and 2020 has further built on that success. 


This year has seen the Ipswich pallet network business increase by 60%. During lockdown the team really pulled together, working in shifts to enable distancing and separation between team members, while delivering on the increased demand for their services. The department has gone from strength to strength and now handles in excess of 2,500 pallets a week.

This growth has led to a substantial recruitment drive seeing seven new HGV drivers and two forklift drivers added to the team. The increase in work has additionally led to three new office roles (with one currently being recruited for). Harley Wenman has also been promoted to the role of pallet network manager, overseeing all pallet operations into the different networks, ensuring efficiency across the teams.
