TPN â€“ THE Pallet Network â€“ was acquired by Eddie Stobart Logistics (ESL) this summer, and TPN MD Mark Duggan says the move promises to open a new range of opportunities and benefits for the networkâ€™s Members and customers.
â€œThere are all kinds of ways in which our Members, their customers and Eddie Stobart customers will benefit from our joining the ESL family,â€ says Duggan. â€œWe are looking forward to exploring those synergies and opportunities, but we already know they will make us more efficient, more cost-effective and give us the tools we need to realise TPNâ€™s long-term strategy.
â€œWe are delighted to be in a long-term complementary partnership,â€ he adds.
There are a number of immediate operational synergies which Duggan says will help the network to maintain its high-quality, low-cost operating model. â€œThe breadth of capabilities within Eddie Stobart will help to accelerate TPNâ€™s evolution and ensure that our Members and their customers retain a competitive advantage,â€ he says.
TPN and its Members will enjoy efficiencies from ESLâ€™s substantial procurement advantages and land holdings.
â€œTPN is committed to offering a peak-proof operation regardless of the relentless growth in pallet volumes,â€ says Duggan. â€œThat means that we are always looking ahead to anticipate future customer requirements, and to ensure that TPN Members have everything they need to deliver service excellence.â€
The management and ethos of TPN will not change, he says. â€œWeâ€™ll still be committed to excellence, retain our focus on customer service, and on meeting the needs of our Members.â€
