We are an independent courier for all types of freight such as small parcels, like mail, packets and boxed freight all the way to large pallets that hold heavy materials.

Are you wondering who TPN are?

Here’s some information and history behind TPN.

TPN was founded in 2000, and in 2019 they were awarded pallet network of the year, which they still hold today. At present, TPN has 130 partner locations and has delivered 5m pallets in 2021.

They offer a cost-effective palletised freight delivery. The pallet network offers excellent and convenient service levels and efficient ways for regional distribution specialists to offer their customers a national service. TPN is also the most effective way to move pallets anywhere in the UK. They have the best postcode coverage and have track&trace which shows customers proof of delivery.

How does the TPN work?

TPN’s partner companies like us (YDL) collect and deliver freight within our allocated postcode areas. It’s fast, super-efficient and means that each individual partner performs a minimum amount of trunking.

Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

YDL’s Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

At YDL, we support several charities. One of which is the Martin House Hospice for children and young people, for which we have their logo proudly displayed on one of our wagons.

On the 12th of March, some of the team at YDL took part in the Yorkshire Three peaks challenge to support the Martin House accumulator challenge. The walk was set out in the early hours of Saturday morning, the challenge for the team was to cross the summit of the 3 peaks and complete a 24-mile walk in under 12 hours. We successfully completed it in under 12hours!

 What does the Martin House Children’s Hospice do?

Martin House support and cares for families that have children with life-limiting conditions in their local community. All of the money raised will go towards more families and children who go to Martin House. Running places like this usually costs around £28,000 per day. Every donation made will help towards ensuring Martin House can keep providing essential care for the families that go to them for the best possible support.

The story behind our team’s name.

Kristian, a member of our team ‘Yankee Darcy Lima’. Has had support from Martin House since 2019 after the loss of his 6-year-old daughter Darcy. This is why ‘Darcy’ is part of the team name. Martin House has helped Kristian and his family by guiding them on the right path and providing support whenever is necessary. The walk was very special to Kristian as he could do it in the memory of Darcy.

 How much we raised

Our goal was to raise £3,000. We have currently raised an amazing £4,400 with 101 supporters. 48% over our initial goal!  https://bit.ly/3NORi4Q

What our team had to say

Kristian:

Why did you want to participate?

“It is a challenge I have been keen on doing since I moved to North Yorkshire 4 years ago, but the fact it was to be done under the premise of raising funds for Martin House Children’s Hospice made it even more appealing. I have first-hand experience of the work they do at the Hospice when our daughter, Darcy, passed away in January 2019 so it made it more special to be able to do this in her memory.”

How did you find the experience?

“Exciting! But during the climbs, I had a slight issue with my knee, and it made it difficult. I felt like I was hitting a wall halfway through, but the team dragged me through. It was a real buzz to say we completed it!”

How do you feel after completing the challenge?

“It’s amazing! A real sense of accomplishment and proud feeling to say I did it… with no training!”

 

Lauren:

Why did you want to participate?

“This was for an excellent cause which is very close to our hearts at YDL.”

How did you find the experience?

“The experience was possibly the toughest I’ve had to date. I am a very competitive person so the 12-hour challenge provided the motivation I needed to keep going, I knew if I didn’t complete within the 12 hours that I would feel like I failed the challenge.”

How do you feel after completing the challenge?

“I could barely walk when I got home, was one toenail down, and had blisters on every toe and on the soles of my feet, but, I felt extremely proud of the whole team and the efforts that every single one of us made. From exceeding the donation target to everyone completing the walk, it truly was a fantastic achievement for a very worthy cause.”

 

Matt:

Why did you want to participate?

“For Team Building and a great charitable cause”

How did you find the experience?

“Really enjoyed it, great fun with the whole team.”

How do you feel after completing the challenge?

“Looking forward to the next opportunity to do more charitable work.”
