TPN continues its successful recruitment strategy with a new-to-networks express freight specialist

TPN — THE Pallet Network has signed another top-flight logistics company, Bristol-based Toogood International Transport. The network has signed several new members in the past two months, with three starting so far in 2020.

Toogood is an events and express freight specialist, which offers a full complement of road, sea, and air freight services, as well as freight forwarding and warehousing. It has particular expertise in the aerospace, marine, energy, pharmaceuticals and automotive sectors.

MD Jason Toogood says he chose TPN because the company wants to extend its domestic freight offering, and diversify its services.

“TPN’s service levels are outstanding from what we can see, so the choice of network wasn’t hard,” says Toogood. “There is also a family feel to the network, which appealed to us as a family firm.”

TPN MD Mark Duggan says: “We are delighted to bring such a strong and vibrant business into the fold, and particularly one which is coming into the pallet network sector for the first time. Toogood has an excellent operation and we are excited to work with them.”

Jason Toogood says: “TPN has an excellent onboarding process and their team is giving us as much support as we could want, including operations, sales and IT. The TPN team have been brilliant and helped us a lot.”

TPN’s culture is to support all Member operations unstintingly. “We have a very simple business model,” says Duggan. “We are dedicated to our Members’ success. We never compete with our Members but rather work hard to ensure they have all the resources and support they need to thrive. If our Members are strong, TPN is strong.”

Trading since 2004, Toogood is a family-owned business and has strong ties to its local community.

Other companies which have recently joined TPN include Big G Logistics and Hambridge Transport.
