The Palletways hot air balloon that recently crossed the English Channel in a successful Guinness World Record attempt has made another appearance.

This time it visited the Transland Group Depot in Naas, Co. Kildare.

It made this appearance to help celebrate the one millionth pallet delivery by Transland Group through their Irish Hub.

Now that’s a lot of pallets!

Transland Group has been Palletways Southern Ireland member since January 2010. The Palletways website says this partnership has helped accelerate the achievement of the 1000000 Irish pallet delivery.

Managing Director of Transland Group, Kieran Conlon, says:

“We at Transland are very proud to have reached this milestone. We have all worked hard to establish a pallet distribution service that is second to none, through service features such as online booking and electronic proof of delivery. With the help of Palletways, we look forward to celebrating the two millionth pallet delivery.”

The Palletways network has more than 100 members (of which Transland Group is one) making it the UK’s largest pallet network. It is also’s chosen pallet partner. The Palletways network

“provides a range of express distribution services for small consignments of palletised freight, including next day, economy and timed delivery options across the UK and Ireland, as well as a daily cross-Channel distribution service to mainland Europe.  Utilising each other’s’ resources, all the member companies deliver goods to market faster and more cost effectively than traditional haulage methods”.
