TPN offers an efficient, cost-effective palletised freight delivery with unbeatable service levels. We have 125 Partner companies, with 143 depot locations around the UK.
The pallet network model offers:
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:
Can unload 57 trailers simultaneously
Handles 20,000 pallets a night
Trailer utilisation in and out circa 100%
Partners receive trunk vehicle back early and at intervals for a smooth delivery operation
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.
