But, we’ve come out the other side stronger here at YDL with little impact on the day-to-day logistics needs of our customers.

YDL works closely with multiple depots and logistic companies as a part of The Pallet Network. This collaborative network of British logistic providers allows the UK logistics industry as a whole to benefit from each other’s strength and provide fast, competitive logistics on a local level.
One member of TPN, Nationwide Express Parcels (NEP), was hit by a sudden spike in work in their region of Glossop. Such a rapid increase was unexpected, even as we come out of this pandemic.
YDL MD Paul McLaren quickly realised NEP would not have the resources to deal with their growing backlog single-handedly. Therefore, it was time to get a team together. YDL enlisted the help of fellow TPN members LPC and McDowell Haulage and Distribution to form a compliment of 11 vehicles and drivers.
On an early Saturday morning, the fleet assembled at NEP depot to begin assistance. It quickly became apparent that the team offered to NEP incredible efficiency, meaning only three drivers would be needed that Saturday. As the rest stood down, it was clear YDL had lived up to the TPN Partner Powered Alliance Mantra.
One Team, TPN!
New Truck Day is often widely celebrated at YDL. A shiny new symbol of our continued support for UK logistics is worth cheering about after all. This time, however, it felt even sweeter. YDL prides itself on supporting the local community in York. We’re always looking to give back wherever and however we can.
Next time you see one of our trucks heading out from the depot or into your business, keep your eyes peeled for a new logo on the cab. Our new truck proudly displays the logo of local charity ‘York Against Cancer.’ We hope to spread awareness of the team’s great work across York and the UK at large. According to studies, during the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic, almost 45% of those with cancer symptoms were unable to see a GP. So let’s set that right however we can.
Our excellent connections through the TPN network allow us to offer unique logistics opportunities to UK businesses – including overnight and same-day delivery. Via this or through awareness, YDL is here to help. Learn more about our services and stay updated on our social channels to make sure you never miss a thing.

2020 was certainly a tumultuous year, filled with surprises and incredible changes that have no doubt led your business down a very different path than the one you began upon in January. If 2020 has taught UK business anything, it’s the importance of logistics to stay afloat. There’s no doubt an unprecedented amount of businesses that will have locked down for good, so to speak, without an eCommerce platform and delivery service. As the very last Christmas presents find their way to their new homes, and we prepare for the finale of this year of twists and turns, let’s recap the lessons 2020 has taught us and how a professional logistics team like YDL can make 2021 just that much easier for your business.
From supply shortages to increased delivery demand, every aspect of the logistical chain can change at a moment’s notice. This is true regardless of current events, but a global pandemic has indeed highlighted this unavoidable truth for businesses across the UK. Your logistical needs will change, and you need a delivery partner ready to adapt with them. As lockdowns continue into early next year, thankfully with a vaccine in sight, trust our vast array of shipping options here at YDL. For top-quality shipping, including Hazchem and pallet shipping, contact us today.
Obvious, but vital to remember. Your business might be dealing with agriculture, but the current medical crisis will affect it. You need to be prepared as a business to stay in tune with the world around you to ensure you can continue to operate efficiently and effectively no matter what changes 2021 will bring. For example, the possibility of a no-deal Brexit leaves future trade and shipping between the UK and the EU in a serious state of uncertainty. Allow logistics experts to handle the headaches, so you can continue to deliver to your customers the best products around.
Next-Day, Same-day, Yesterday, customers want their items as soon as possible. COVID has shown us that the seller that can get items out the quickest will always prevail. Just look at the fiasco around the PS5 and Series X launch. Passionate customers are willing to pay thousands on top of the retail price to third-party sellers due to a lack of stock. Shipping complications in this eCommerce-dominated world will cost you countless sales. Every out-of-stock item, week-plus delivery time can irrevocably damage your customers’ loyalty. Ensure you can meet the demand with our YDL delivery options designed to ensure your products are reaching customers in a timeframe and budget your business needs.
If you are to take any lesson away from 2020, let it be this one. Logistics are more important than ever at this time and your business must put its best foot forward to ensure its survival. YDL is ready to serve your business, with logistics packages tailored to suit your business requirements. After all, we’re the people who ensure your needs are “Handled with Care- by People that Care”. Contact us today to begin your journey with us.
