TPN – THE Pallet Network has finished a strong year of recruitment by signing two more first-class member companies which will officially join the network in early 2020 and the company says it will have more member additions to announce in 2020.

Coventry-based Hambridge Transport is a leading logistics firm, specialising in distribution and global logistics. It has an established event logistics business and 120,000 sq ft of warehousing space. It boasts a substantial portfolio of manufacturing, retail, distribution and import clients.

“We were attracted to TPN’s ethos of excellent service,” says Financial Director Alan Mohomed. “We have extensive experience in palletised freight distribution and felt we could offer value to our existing customers by joining the leading network.”

The second company who will usher in the New Year with TPN is Stevenage-based Big G Logistics, a relatively new logistics player which has nonetheless won some impressive contracts.

“We started in 2016 and now have two depots in Stevenage and Hoddesdon,” says MD George Denman. “We are really pleased to be joining TPN. We have some prior experience helping one of their member depots, and I absolutely love TPN.

“The systems are brilliant, the people are great. TPN makes it very easy for you to be very good at what you do,” says Denman. “I think I’ll be TPN for life.”

Big G recently won a major XPO contract, becoming an authorised XPO depot.

“Although we will do general haulage for customers upon request, palletised freight distribution is the bulk of our business,” says Denman. “That’s why joining TPN will be such a positive move for us and our customers.”

TPN MD Mark Duggan says: “TPN has had a very strong year in 2019, operationally and in terms of member recruitment. We are very pleased to be starting 2020 with such great companies added to the network and are expecting to announce further exciting additions in the near future.”
