What is a pallet delivery?

Pallets are standard-sized bases on which to stack goods for transport. Pallet delivery involves the collection, transport, sorting and delivery of your goods to a named recipient. Before it’s evolution, pallets used to go from point A to point B, even if there is a lot of overlap. Now, shipments travel to a central sorting hub where they are loaded into a lorry for the destination leg of the journey.

This is more efficient on fuel and emissions. So, it’s better for the environment. Advanced tracking means the shipment is monitored from end to end. Both by the transport agency and the end consumer. Our partners, TPN, were named pallet network of the year for 2019, so you know your goods are in great hands. Plus, once you’ve booked transport once, you can always log back into the TPN Connect portal to book additional carriage.

How do you prepare a pallet for collection?

First, you’ll need to measure your pallet. Our standard bases are 1.2m by 1.2m, so the only variable is height. You can have goods stacked from .06m to 2.2m and they’ll still fit on a standard pallet. Once you have the sizes of your pallets, you’ll need to input the starting and destination postcodes. This will allow for an accurate quote. Then your consignment and
company details are loaded into the TPN Connect portal for monitoring. Remember, you have options for your load.

The Hallam express Fleet

Hallam Express operates a domestic fleet of 13.6-metre curtain-sided trailers offering a variety of transport options:

● Full load transport – we can offer significant savings on return transport journeys
● Groupage transport – we can combine several separate consignments travelling to the same destination for reduced fares
● Part-load export – we can store goods domestically and consolidate consignments for export

Before the driver arrives to collect your goods, you’ll need to have them secured tightly. Straps or plastic film are common ways to do this. If you need help, we can assist for a small fee. Your driver will load the goods onto our curtain-sided lorry via tail lift, so it’s no hassle at all. After pickup, you can track the journey to the hub and then to its final destination, all via the portal.

Remember, the following services always come as standard:

● Start the request on TPN Connect
● Track the consignment through the portal
● Premium scan and weigh technology
● Advanced tracking technology & delivery confirmation
● Trucks equipped with tail-lifts

What happens on delivery?

We operate a kerbside delivery for all pallets. This means your goods are delivered to the nearest flat and hard surface at the destination address. We’ll never leave a parcel on unsteady gravel or behind a locked gate. Your recipient will sign for the parcel and take over ownership of the consignment from that point.

What if my pallet is oversized?

We have special services for oversized freight. Our partner, TPN offers TPN XL – a dedicated, capacity-managed service for unusual or bulky palletised freight. Innovatively, they have a two-phase system for freight. Standard palletised freight is handled at night and bulky freight is handed during the day by a dedicated team. This gives it the expertise it requires to deliver it within pre-arranged windows.
