Britvic opts for LPR as pallet pooler for Ireland

LPR has been chosen to be Britvic plc’s pallet pooler for Ireland. 

The firm was invited to participate in a formal tender for its Irish and UK pallet pooling business in 2019. As part of its submission, LPR revealed it ensured its offering included a pricing structure that demonstrated good value for money, was supported by a number of value-added initiatives, and outlined how LPR would meet demand and provide ‘hassle-free commercial simplicity’.

LPR highlighted how its pallet quality would feed into production facilities in both automated and manual handling environments.

Raymond Galligan, head of logistics & demand supply planning – supply chain, Britvic Ireland, said, “I was really impressed by LPR’s handling both of the implementation process, and the subsequent roll out. The feedback from my team has been overwhelmingly positive – particularly in respect of LPR’s pallet quality.”

Diane Carroll, commercial director – LPR UK & Ireland, added, “From the first virtual meeting, through to the first load of pallets being electronically ordered and then delivered, we have worked together in a truly collaboratively way – an absolute necessity given our inability to physically meet in the current pandemic.”
