TPN- The Pallet Network

Here at YDL, we are part of the TPN pallet network. We proudly run over 100 depots throughout the UK. We listen to our customers requirements which is the reason for our success. We offer flexibility to deliver services that are like no other company!

If you’re looking for a reliable pallet courier, a trusted TPN member is the best place to start. Listed below is more information about TPN, how they work and the benefits of using a courier in the network. 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.

Why choose pallet deliveries with TPN?

The service offers peace of mind because you can track & trace your pallets from your mobile phone. Wherever you are, rest assured you’ll never miss a parcel. This is especially helpful in the case of expensive or fragile deliveries! A forklift truck allows the pallets to be moved easily. By choosing TPN as your pallet courier, you are saving a significant amount on costs. Not forgetting you are able to ship your products in bulk. Instead of sending multiple stockpiles through normal delivery services, choose to use TPN.

  • International delivery- wherever you are, we’ve got you covered.
  • Saturday service

The importance of using pallets.

Pallets are used for a lot of different things for businesses. They can offer storage and a base for assembling and transporting materials and products. Pallets provide vital protection to the product when they’re being transported to the final destination, ensuring they arrive intact.
