Pallet Services

In November 2010 A.J.Maiden & Son Ltd became a member of the highly regarded Palletforce network, servicing the SY postcode area on behalf of the network.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary on 1st September 2010, Palletforce is one of the sectors leading exponents in palletised freight distribution within the UK and Europe. With over 100 strategically-located depots around the country serviced by the central hub, the Palletforce pallet network offers a streamlined process with significant efficiency savings over conventional methods of distribution.

Our Palletforce operation, like that of every other member, is controlled by Palletforce’s bespoke IT platform, Alliance. This gives us a track and trace facility for your consignments, as a registered user, you would be able to enter your own consignments, and view their progress through the network. Alliance also facilitates access to stored PODs (Proofs of Delivery), which can be printed or e-mailed directly from the system.  Through our membership of Palletforce we are able to offer the following services;

Total European Network

The European Service can handle from one pallet to a full load with daily departures and return loads from every country in Europe. Loads are fully traceable throughout the established haulage network.

In combination with our main fleet, Palletforce allows us to cater for virtually all of your distribution requirements. If your operation has a need for multiple full load deliveries, several part loads and a few individual pallet deliveries, we have the resources at our disposal to satisfy that need in its entirety.
