How Can Speedy Support Pallet Networks?

 

Pallet network support: what is it? And how does it work? Here at Speedy Freight, we’ve got the answers.

 

When it comes to providing courier support to pallet networks, Speedy Freight is your answer. The UK has eight leading pallet networks, and from time to time all of them will need support, cover, or additional courier needs. Speedy Freight provides courier support to pallet networks across the UK, offering driver cover, along with ad-hoc and scheduled logistics support as needed. 

 

Our experienced partner drivers can offer reliable, efficient and trustworthy courier services which are recognised within our industry as market-leading. So what does this support look like, and how can we help? Speedy Freight has the answers.

 

Firstly, what is a pallet network? 

 

Simply put, a pallet network is a network of companies that deliver palletised freight: providing courier services by transporting consignments, often in bulk. So-called because of the pallets that house the goods, pallet delivery consists of placing consignments or containers on a pallet, where they are then secured with stretch warp, shrink wrap or strapping. Subsequently, the goods are transported to their destination.  Many commercial businesses use pallet delivery services as it reduces the time, cost, handling and storing of the goods. 

 

When do pallet networks need support? 

 

Pallet networks might need support for a number of reasons. For example, their existing fleet may be at capacity, and it may be time to call in additional support to help them with their existing obligations and consignments. Alternatively, pallet networks might require support with driver cover over holidays or unexpected driver absences to fulfil a gap in the supply chain. Whatever our pallet network partners need, Speedy Freight is there.
