At YDL we are the people who care, handling your packages with care. APC Overnight, our parcel network, consistently achieves a fulfillment of on time deliveries for 99.8% of our parcels.
To ensure our pallet distribution could maintain the same standards we knew that partnering with The Pallet Network (TPN) was the right choice for us and the right choice for our customers.
Coupled with our 3rd Party Logistics warehouse we ensure that we fulfill all of your freight needs.
Today we’d like to talk about our wonderful partnership with TPN and how they help ensure that your pallets end up where they need to be, when they need to be there.
The Pallet Network is a distribution network that spans the UK. Comprising of 120 partner companies servicing 130 depots and three central hubs, The Pallet Network is the way logistics is meant to be.
By reducing mileage covered per collection and delivery and by reducing the area a single partner has to deliver and collect pallets within, The Pallet Network ensures an environmentally friendly and ultra-efficient way of ensuring your pallet gets to where it needs to be.
Each partner, of which YDL is one, is allocated a number of postcode areas and collects and delivers freight solely within those areas. The TPN Pallet Network consists of three major hubs, one in the North in Preston, one in Coventry for all the freight heading to or from the South-East, and one in Minworth for everywhere else.
Pallets are delivered to the appropriate hub and then picked up by their destination vehicle to ensure timely delivery in an extremely efficient manner, and means that each delivery vehicle runs less miles per delivery.
Sending your pallet(s) with YDL means that you benefit from the efficiency of The Pallet Network too, ensuring whether you want to receive a delivery from the South, or send one to the South, no where in the UK is out of our reach. With our delivery options to suit any budget we ensure our services are always within yours.
Your freight is valuable to you and it is even more so to us. When using YDL you know your packages are handled with care by people who care, and to ensure you know where your pallet is at every step of the way we take advantage of the TPN track and trace system.
TPN Tracking is run through TPN Connect, their own bespoke IT suite which allows both their partners and their customers complete transparency, control and all the management information a concerned customer or partner could desire.
With TPN tracking is easy, it has been built in house by logistic experts and is constantly updated in-line with the needs and feedback of both customers and partners alike.
Offering customers a way to book their own jobs, print their own labels and scan their own pallets, the beginning of the logistics journey can all be handled by the TPN tracking system. Pallets can be tracked all the way to their destination, all the while receiving e-mail notifications with estimated time of delivery and an electronic Proof of Delivery (ePOD) receipt. With 24/7 access to the TPN tracking web portal and a simple to use TPN app available on your phone, the TPN tracking system really has it all.
Using our YDL pallet services ensures you benefit from our partnership with The Pallet Network and the state-of-the-art TPN tracking system.
You will also benefit from our deep desire to listen to our customers and offer the flexibility you need and to handle your requests with a range of options to suit you.
We know punctuality is paramount in the shipping and delivery of freight and so we offer next day delivery, time critical deliveries, and Saturday services so that you can ensure your pallet arrives where it needs to arrive when it needs to be there.
We also offer an economy service which offers delivery within 2 to 3 days so that everyone, or those with less urgent deliveries, can still experience our world class service at a price that suits them.
We are able to ship single pallets, multiple pallets and fully loaded trucks. If you happen to be a smaller business without lifting equipment on site, our tail lift service has you covered.
And finally, for your clients and customers overseas we offer international shipping and delivery across the globe.
