123 palette, the new transport service business owned by French company Viapost, has announced plans to double its turnover in 2017 in order to reach EUR 15mn (USD 16.85mn). Managing director Christophe Baboin has informed that the business, which offers transport solutions to SMEs and mid-cap companies with one to six pallets, is acquiring new markets within the retail and supermarket sector and it hopes to increase its daily orders from between five and six to 50 by 2017. 123 palette has 600 transport partners and also takes advantage of services offered by French postal company La Poste, the owner of Viapost. A commercial team of four transport experts has been established with a global offer with freight management and pallet distribution services for SMEs, as well as chartering activities and a pricing service, as well as a flow management solution. The introduction of a transport management system is also underway and according to Baboin, the business will have a tool to help it to both handle the flow of goods within the group and to provide solutions to foreign clients by the end of 2016.
