THE Pallet Network offers award-winning services levels for palletised freight distribution in the UK and Ireland

TPN offers an efficient, cost-effective palletised freight delivery with unbeatable service levels. We have 120 Partner companies, with 130+ depot locations around the UK. 

The pallet network model offers:

  • better environmental performance with reduced mileage and lower emissions 
  • the most efficient way to move pallets anywhere in the UK overnight
  • an efficient way for regional distribution specialists to offer their customers a national service
  • standardised and excellent service levels

How does TPN work?

Each of our Partner companies collects and delivers freight within their allocated postcode areas. This means that pallets can be collected from all over the country, taken the the most appropriate of our three Hubs, and cross docked to their destination vehicle. It's fast, super efficient and means that each individual Partner performs a minimal amount of trunking.

We further reduce mileage by siphoning freight which both originates and is destined for the North to our Northern Hub in Preston; and freight originating and destined for the South-East, Kent, and East Anglia goes to our regional Hub in Coventry. Everything else is taken to our state of the art, purpose-built facility in Minworth, near Sutton Coldfield.

As TPN is committed to completely resilient peak-proof performance, we are already preparing our next Hub for 2023, which will be purpose-designed to manage future freight volumes.

Some fast facts about our Minworth Hub:

TPN contributes significantly to the UK logistics industry. It enables regional distribution specialists to provide a first class national service  to UK business customers. However, it is also progressing and developing models of collaborative logistics which could significantly improve the carbon impact of freight movements; the stability and longevity of their partners as local employers; and posits that sustainable business means excellence, fair pricing and the principle of mutual benefit.
