The Pallet Network


Northern Freight Services is proud to be a Member of TPN – THE Pallet Network. It is, in our view, the best network for palletised freight in the UK, and is an indispensable complement to our other freight services. It means we can always be sure to give our customers the most cost-effective distribution, regardless of the size of consignment, without sacrificing excellence of service.

TPN – THE Pallet Network has more than 100 Members and over 120 sites throughout the UK.  We offer next-day, timed or economy deliveries for any palletised goods.

We handle full or half pallet sizes, and you can see the dimensions on the images below.  We can also take oversized freight which requires more than one pallet space. For freight which measures 3m or more in length or width, ask about our expert service TPN XL.

 

There are some highlights of TPN’s operation and the reason Northern Freight is a committed partner.

  • Its service levels are second to none and, with great IT, excellent regional members and superlative IT systems, its operation is now peak proof. Even when volumes climb, TPN service stays strong.
  • With the largest number of depots throughout the UK, TPN offers unrivalled postcode coverage and national service.
  • Both Hub and member operations are accredited to ISO 9001 for quality assurance. All TPN Members including ourselves, are rigorously audited every year.
  • TPN’s IT, Connect lets you enter your jobs online; print your own labels, so you know the details are right; track your pallets all the way to their final destination; and it’ll give you real-time automated updates en route, including the moment your customer signs for their delivery through the award-winning electronic POD system. The TPN App – TAPP – gives you all your pallet network information from your Android mobile or iPhone.
  • TPN has purpose-built Hub facilities in Minworth and two regional Hubs at Preston and Northampton.
  • Through TPN, we have links to Europe and Scandinavia, and TPN.ie, our sister network in Ireland.

You can download TPN’s customer brochure here. You can also find out more about us on our website, or follow us on twitter. Customers are welcome to visit the Hub by arrangement with their local Member.
