To request a pallet quote, you’ll first need to measure your freight
What is a pallet?
Pallets are useful because they standardise everything but the height of a consignment. When your width and depth are all constant, you know how many pallets can fit side by side in a space. This is why palletised freight is so popular. Our standard pallet size is 1.2m by 1.2m, then the height varies. A quarter pallet is .6m, the half pallet is 1.m and the full pallet is 2.2m. And wood is the most popular pallet material. Although, other options are available including recyclable materials.
How to get a pallet quote?
Generally speaking, all goods – once collected – are transported to a central hub. From there, they are all tracked and sent along via the local provider for their destination. (This is known as hub and spoke distribution.) It’s more efficient as there is less overlap of transit vehicles. This is also better for the environment, resulting in less fuel usage and emissions.
How to prepare your pallet for collection?
Using the TPN Connect portal, you can track your parcel’s journey. Once your consignment has been processed at the hub, it will make its way to the final destination. On arrival, it’s delivered to the closest flat and hard surface. Don’t worry, we’ll never deliver on gravel or behind gates. Your parcel will always be easy to access. You’ll get a confirmation that the delivery has been signed for and the transport is complete. It’s total peace of mind from end-to-end.
