The hazchem network - celebrating 15 years of excellence.
Using a pallet network can be a very efficient way to deliver your goods around the UK. If your products happen to be classed as hazardous, then your options of which pallet network to choose can be greatly reduced. After affixing the relevant legislative stickers to your products you can call The Hazchem Network to deliver for you.
At The Hazchem Network, they are continually looking forward; a new hub, more advanced technology, legislation, HERS (Hazchem Emergency Response Service), constant change and improvement to benefit our members and their customers alike. However, there are some occasions where it's necessary to look back, taking a moment to reflect, probably not something they do often enough.
15 years ago,a unique and exciting pallet network entered the industry, the brainchild of Ali Karim and the late Jim Scanlan. Two great minds, who, with great foresight and extensive knowledge, developed a pallet network focussed on dangerous goods distribution in the UK. The Hazchem Network was launched; a blend of all the good that standard pallet networks offer, coupled with a tightly regulated framework and advanced technology to manage the ever changing and challenging legislation across its membership. That first night they moved 43 pallets, they now move close to 2000 pallets and 500 parcels every night.
Fast forward 15 years, they have a robust, highly developed and sustainable ADR pallet and parcel network that can distribute goods across the UK and Europe. One particular highlight occurred this year when they made the move to a significantly larger self-contained new hub in Hinckley to accommodate the growth they have experienced and to plan for the future as this sector continues to grow.
As with any business, they recognise it's their exceptional membership and employees that are the vital component to the network's continued success; their loyalty, enthusiasm and commitment have got them to where we are today.
Such is the commitment of their members, that nine of them still remain the same from the inception of the network 15 years ago.
