How a pallet network works
Fortec Distribution Network is a leading UK pallet network that distributes thousands of consignments every day, specialising in time-critical deliveries. This is done via a strategically located network of more than 70 members.
What is a pallet network?
A pallet distribution network is a group of transport and haulage companies, each handling a specific region usually based on their business postcode and all transport professionals in their own right.
Each transport company collects consignments from within their own region and transports these to Fortec’s Northamptonshire Hub, where consignments from all over the UK and Ireland are consolidated into destination bays and despatched out, via the delivering member to their destination region. From there they are loaded on smaller vehicles and delivered to the end customer – usually within 24 hours. As pallets are large and heavy, Fortec completes deliveries at the kerbside, keeping drivers, customers and the wider public safe.
Fortec is part of the Pall-Ex Group, forming part of the largest collection of transport companies in the UK, which we are proudly part of.
