WHAT IS A PALLET DELIVERY?

A pallet is a flat sturdy structure, typically constructed from wood, plastic, or metal, which can be used to safely transport and distribute a wide range of different items – from fresh produce and goods to heavy materials and industrial parts. Products are secured to the pallet using straps or shrink wrap and the entire pallet can then be lifted onto a truck using a forklift.

Pallet transport is all about improving your delivery performance and reducing freight costs, whilst also driving your retained profitability. It’s about making your life easier and avoiding the complex challenges and disjointed transactions that usually come hand-in-hand with transportation and delivery of goods. The pallet distribution company will take care of the entire process, from pick-up to final delivery and, ultimately, it makes very smart business sense.

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A PALLET DISTRIBUTION COMPANY?

Generally speaking, pallet distribution is a much more cost-effective method of delivery than individual shipment. But in order to maximise financial benefit, it’s important that you only pay for the pallet size that you actually need. Wooden pallets vary greatly in terms of size and the amount of space you require will depend on the type of goods you’d like to transport. When choosing a new pallet distribution company, be sure to read up on which pallet sizes they offer and decide whether they’re suitable for you and your business.

The John K. Philips Group offers a full range of pallet sizes (including quarter, half, full, and oversized) and our transportation rates are specifically tailored to meet the individual needs of clients. If your consignment doesn’t fill the minimum payload capacity, we also offer a part-load service, whereby your delivery is consolidated with others to create a full-load. This allows us to provide all customers with the same level service, but at a fraction of the cost, and it is an incredibly popular choice with small business owners who have a relatively small delivery load.

NO. 2: TECHNOLOGY

All businesses need to keep up with the latest advances in technology and this is especially true in the distribution and logistics industry. The best pallet distribution companies are all underpinned by technology solutions that help to streamline and improve the pick-up and delivery process.

Take for example the state-of-the-art “track and trace” computer system, currently used at the John K. Philips Group. This innovative piece of technology, along with modern signature-capture devices, allows us to follow the exact progress of your consignment from pick-up to delivery. We can keep you fully informed regarding the status of your consignment, offering information on its current location, the vehicle and driver involved, and it’s estimated arrival time. Such technology allows us to run the most efficient service possible and you can always rely on us to deliver your product to the specified deadline.

NO. 3: EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE

If choosing a transportation logistics company for the first time, remember, excellent customer service is key. Ideally, you need to find a company that will offer advice and guidance from the outset. Somewhere that has a dedicated team of staff, who are easy to reach and happy to help.

Here at the John K. Philips Group, our customer services are based at the company headquarters in St. Helens, where they work tirelessly to ensure you receive the best possible service. Whatever your business needs or distribution requirements, they will do everything they can to create a tailored solution for you. We offer a full range of services, including different-sized pallets and deliveries to the UK, Europe and beyond, and all of our drivers and vehicles are ADR compliant – meaning they can transport everything from fresh fruit to dangerous chemicals.

The fact that everything is centralised helps us to provide a seamless, efficient service. We offer faster distribution times, reduced operating costs, and our customer service is second to none.

WHAT SIZE IS A PALLET IN THE UK?

When it comes to buying or renting pallets in the UK, there’s no doubt that things can quickly become confusing. What you’re storing or transporting, how heavy it weighs and where you’re sending it can all play a big part in the type of pallet you opt for – so it pays to be in the know from the start!

Whilst there certainly is one ‘standard’ pallet size in the UK, it’s not all quite as simple or straight forward as that. Here at John K Philips, we have been specialising in pallet delivery and storage for over 40 years – so if you’re looking to hire pallets in the UK, stick around to find out everything you need to know!

HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN A STANDARD UK PALLET CARRY?

When it comes to pallet delivery, perhaps the most important factor to consider is the haulage itself, as this can be the determining factor in the type of pallet you will require. It is for this reason that you’ll want to get familiar with the different kinds of standard UK pallet size.

UK Standard Grade 1 (also referred to as Grade A)

  • Typically, capable of holding up to 1 tonne in weight
  • Identifiable by its big boards and narrow gaps
  • Sometimes referred to as a Perimeter Based Pallet

UK Standard Grade 2 (also referred to as Grade B)

  • Typically, capable of holding up to 750kg in weight
  • Range of options available with this type of pallet, including perimeter based pallets which are best for racking, or non-perimeter based which don’t have any extra base boards.

UK Standard Grade 3 (also referred to as Grade C)

  • Most commonly used for lightweight haulage typically managing anything between 200-500kg in weight
  • Typically have thin boards with more gaps in between

This is a rough guide to the UK standard pallet sizes, but we always recommend you discuss your specific requirements with your supplier first before committing to any type of pallet.
