Young Brothers Transport joins Pallet-Track network

Young Brothers Transport has become the latest in a succession of businesses to join the expanding Pallet-Track network.

Serving the CT postcodes the Kent-based logistics organisation, which began trading in 1968, has big hopes for 2016 and will be looking to tap into Pallet-Track’s nationwide network in order to bring a broader range of services to existing and potential customers.

Jeff Young at Young Brothers, said: “We’d spoken to a number of networks over the course of 2015 but felt that Pallet-Track would be the ideal fit. We’re looking to increase the volumes of pallets we transport while still remaining profitable and Pallet-Track’s reputation for having never lost a pallet really appealed to us.

“We’re also confident that our existing customers would receive the same level of great service that they’ve come to expect from Young Brothers, and that potential customers would be impressed by the network’s national reach.”

Based at a 267,000 sq ft distribution centre in Wolverhampton, Pallet-Track operates a ‘hub and spoke’ system whereby members bring their goods into the central base and other members then take them to other parts of the UK.

This reduces costs for individual hauliers as they are cutting delivery distances and making sure that no HGVs run empty on any leg of their journeys.

Pallet-Track also has two regional hubs in Welyn Garden City and Bellshill in Scotland, which enable members to reduce mileage costs and their Carbon foot print.

Nigel Parkes, founder and managing director at Pallet-Track, said: “We’re pleased to be welcoming Young Brothers to our network. The organisation and its staff have a fantastic reputation and we look forward to working alongside the team to better serve the area of Canterbury.”
