Pall-Ex launches central billing system
May 04, 2010 Comments (0)
Pall-Ex, the UK network for the distribution of palletised freight, has launched a new billing structure. The organisation has developed the central billing system to substantially reduce member administration and to make the invoice system easier and more efficient to use for its growing member network. The web-based system also enables members to manage payments more effectively, thereby providing greater control over billing.
Under the new system, Pall-Ex acts as the central biller and issues invoices for all work delivered between Pall-Ex members. Pall-Ex members now receive a maximum of three weekly invoices covering all input and delivered consignments managed through the Pall-Ex network. Central billing invoices are generated five working days in arrears from the last day of the invoicing period and normally cover one weeks trading from Monday to Friday.
Members are emailed a one-page summary of the invoice on the day it is generated and detailed consignment information for each invoice is available for members through web-based reports. Pall-Ex Members are also provided with a monthly statement detailing all sales and costs invoices as well as information on due payments. Pall-Ex IT director Sean Sherwin-Smith said: It is essential that Pall-Ex is able to operate as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible, not only in the central organisation but also across all its member depots. Pall-Ex has a track record of innovation, technology adoption and technology adaptation to suit the networks specific needs. Our members are also acutely aware of the benefits that technology innovation brings and central billing has been developed in response to member needs and to support our members as they expand their respective operations.
Founded in 1996, Pall-Ex has grown to become the UKs number one network for distribution of palletised freight.
Boasting a membership of around 100 of the countrys leading hauliers, Pall-Exs strong and vibrant brand is synonymous with quality, reliable service and innovation, and is testament to its sector-leading capability, knowledge and experience of founding and operating pallet networks.
With daily services throughout the UK and Europe, Pall-Ex has expanded freight distribution facilities for customers, to offer bespoke order fulfilment that includes secure warehousing, deep sea and air freight services.
