Pallet Distribution & Same Day Pallet Delivery

Distributing palletised goods is where it all started for us here at Avango. We used to handle sub-contract deliveries for a large UK pallet distribution network, and it’s what we still focus much of our efforts on today.

We are often called in by large pallet networks to assist with their loads. Either collecting from the sender’s location and dropping into a regional operator’s hub, or the vice versa.

We admit we can’t compete on price with the national haulage networks that carry large volumes of pallets. However, as we tailor our services and prices we can provide excellent options to businesses that distribute on a smaller scale. Specifically small-to-medium sized businesses that regularly dispatch goods to multiple locations.

We can usually offer better next-day rates on loads of around 2-3 pallets per delivery address. What’s more, we offer a same-day delivery option, which many networks can’t provide.

Customers located in our Prime Location areas can also benefit from discounted rates. Deliveries within 200 miles of Manchester (excluding central London) cut out the middle-man and go direct.

The Standard Pallet Network Delivery Process

  • The goods are collected from your warehouse using and taken to the hub nearest to your location.
  • Once offloaded, they are sorted to go with other pallets heading to the same part of the country as your delivery.
  • They are re-loaded onto a new vehicle that will travel overnight to the next hub.
  • Once at the local hub, pallets are offloaded again, for transfer to delivery vehicle.
  • In the morning, the delivery vehicle, containing anywhere up to 26 pallets, follows a planned delivery route.
For: Cheaper Rates per pallet as your goods share space across the network with other deliveries
Against: Slower delivery times, risk of damage or loss due to transhipping and shared space

Benefits of Using a Same-Day Pallet Courier

  • Dedicated transport – Much less risk of being lost or damaged due to transferring vehicles.
  • Same-Day delivery option – Some deliveries can be collected and delivered same-day courier if required.
  • Wait and Return – if you need to exchange pallets we can have drivers wait, re-load and return straight back to your premises.

For: Much faster, direct delivery reduces risk of loss or damage
Against: More expensive as vehicle is dedicated to your delivery

New Service Website

In 2018 we realised this service was growing into an important part of our business, and as we expanded it and partnered with other businesses, we created a dedicated website just for the network pallet deliveries. Take a look by clicking the button below.
