In a review of its business UPN said the company’s position was satisfactory and it was optimistic for the future: “The company continues to grow in respect of the number of pallets moved on a nightly basis,” UPN said.
“The company will continue to develop its internal systems and IT infrastructure in the coming year which will maintain UPN’s position as a market leader within the pallet sector.”
This summer, the network said its presence in the east of England had strengthened after members in the region enjoyed significant expansion.
