Driving standards forward from the start – with Palletline

As one of the first companies to join the Palletline network and still working closely with our partners every day, we have enjoyed a longstanding relationship with the distribution company for over two decades.

With a rather unique business model, the Palletline concept is simple – carefully selected member companies are all shareholders in the Palletline network. Combining expertise of logistics and distribution, the fast, reliable and efficient service is coupled with a spirit of innovation and a dedication to quality control.

With this special concept at the heart of the partnership, each company has a personal commitment to ensure that Palletline’s quality standards, services and values resonate throughout everything they do. With our business values falling into line directly with Palletline, we are proud to be award-winning members of the network, regularly receiving a consistent achievement of 98.5% in our service offering.

That being said, our very own Managing Director, Ray Clegg has been appointed as this year’s Chairman of the Palletline Members Management Committee, ensuring each member company is performing to the expected standards and supporting to make decisions around investment and infrastructure.

Ray explained: “Having originally been a member elected representative for three years, I was honoured to take over Chairmanship of the committee for 2020. The main role is to ensure that Palletline has full member engagement and to share operational best practice across the network. By having a shareholder owned network, we are able to draw on all relevant experience whereby everyone is engaged and committed to driving standards across all key performance indicators, plus all members have access to the main board to share their views.”

At Alan R Jones, we are committed to staying true to our heritage of being a family run company in which integrity and loyalty to our customers always come first. The Members Management Committee and the entire Palletline network share the same values and standards that we have been renowned to fulfil over the last four decades, and we are proud to stand with Palletline to drive forward industry standards and services.
