When Harrowden Group brought Spearhead Turf, Q Lawns, Stewarts Turf and Turfland all under one banner, it needed a premium transport supplier which could manage both high volumes and the very challenging mix of residential, professional and top-end retail customers. It chose Malco Freight.
â€œWe decided on Malco Freight because of the work MD Alison Jeffries has put in to make sure that our delivery operation is as good as it can possibly be. Turf is a heavy and difficult product,â€ he says. â€œWe simply could not do our jobs daily if it werenâ€™t for the efforts of Malco Freight and TPN. I have a background in pallet networks, and I honestly think most pallet networks would creak if we asked them to handle our delivery portfolio. That TPN doesnâ€™t is testament to the hard work of Malco Freight and their fellow depots.â€
Harrowdenâ€™s clients need on-time deliveries because turf requires resource to manage it as soon as it arrives. Itâ€™s not only heavy but a living product. Furthermore, major retailers typically have very tight delivery windows and penalties for non-compliance.
The company sells turf and associated products all year with sales peaking between Easter and the end of summer.

Ask any of our partners and they’ll tell you that TPN is THE Pallet Network. And they’ll mean it.
