Environment & Sustainability

PalletXpress considers environmental and Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives of paramount importance for the company’s future growth and sustainability. Our policy towards reducing our own carbon footprint was a key factor when planning the company’s new Superhub in Dublin. PalletXpress will continue to improve the company’s CSR initiatives and further contribute towards a sustainable future with our network partners.


Some of the benefits of changing to a full fleet of Lithium-Ion forklifts include:

  • Process between 150 – 200 trailers of freight on a daily basis
  • More affordable operation and running costs
  • Easier to maintain and service
  • Enhanced braking technologies
  • Easier to drive, manipulate and maneuver

Building Sustainability

We reduced our energy consumption through:

  • Installation of 40 PV solar panels, providing 12kw of electricity
  • lighting sensor control system fitted in the office building
  • LED lighting throughout providing 55% reduction in electricity running costs
  • Heat recovery units installed in the office areas
  • PIR controlled flushing system, allowing us to avoid unnecessary water wastage
  • The building has a B energy rating

Paperless network

A key objective for PalletXpress is to become a paperless network where all deliveries are completed using a drivers app on delivery. Some of the benefits are:

  • Reduction of unnecessary paper consumption through the network
  • Less administration for customers and members due to no sorting of paperwork
  • Digital captures means no mis-placing of PODs and provide real-time delivery confirmation
  • Huge saving made on the cost of paper, time and administration
