Here are a few reasons why the TPN network will be a boon to your business.

  • Its service levels are second to none and, with great IT, excellent regional members and superlative IT systems, its operation is now peak proof. Even when volumes climb, TPN service stays strong.
  • With the largest number of depots throughout the UK, TPN offers unrivalled postcode coverage and national service.
  • Both Hub and member operations are accredited to ISO 9001 for quality assurance. All TPN Members including ourselves, are rigorously audited every year.
  • TPN’s IT, Connect lets you enter your jobs online; print your own labels, so you know the details are right; track your pallets all the way to their final destination; and it’ll give you real-time automated updates en route, including the moment your customer signs for their delivery through the award-winning electronic POD system. The TPN App – TAPP – gives you all your pallet network information from your Android mobile or iPhone.
