TPN – The Pallet Network – is one of the UK’s leading palletised freight distribution networks, offering Next Day, Premium, Economy and Tail-Lift services throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as Europe and Scandinavia.
The Pallet Network was founded in 2000 in an old aircraft hangar near Doncaster, with the aim of providing a cost-effective and reliable palletised distribution solution. It was subject to a management buy-out in 2007. In 2014 Mark Duggan, formerly principal of member company Eezehaul, became managing director. The network has continued to grow and prosper, adding significant numbers to its Membership in order to secure sustainable service levels in the face of volume growth and smaller, manageable delivery areas. At the time of writing, TPN has 107 Member companies and 123 depot locations.
Our current, purpose-built, 367,500 sq ft Hub which opened in January 2014 was joined in 2015 by a regional Hub near Preston. We have a policy of continual investment and continual improvement to ensure that our facilities and operational procedures remain second to none.
With 200+ HGV parking bays, state of the art CCTV and undercover load checking areas, we are confident that we have a sustainable Hub to ensure the ongoing quality of the Network’s operation.
In 2018 TPN was acquired by Eddie Stobart Logistics Ltd. This new partnership offered synergies for both companies, and ensured that TPN could continue to evolve and develop as it needed for the benefit of its Members and their customers. TPN’s culture and management remains unchanged.
