Northern Ireland bakery Genesis Breads has awarded a three-year contract to IPP Logipal to supply pallets from its Portadown depot for delivering the plant baker’s products to major retailers in the UK and Ireland.

IPP will handle all palletised products for Genesis at its plant in Magherafelt, County Derry, to customers including Dunnes Stores, Sainsbury’s and Tesco. The wooden pallets are a standard 1,200mm x 1,000mm in size. The pallets will operate on a one-way trip system. IPP subsequently collects the pallets directly from the retailer and carries out quality control inspections before returning them to Genesis for re-use.

The IPP system allows IT pressures and invoicing to be kept to a minimum, said Genesis.
