How Does Pallet Delivery Work?

Pallets are a type of flat transport structure that goods are loaded onto in preparation for transport, and thanks to their ease of use and high functionality, they play a core role in the logistics industry.

Pallet size and type can vary widely, allowing them to support goods with ease and efficiency.

Loading up your wooden pallets with goods is only the first step; however – they still need to be delivered to their final destination, and this is where a dependable pallet delivery service comes in.

If you’re on the lookout for a new set of transport solutions to improve your business, or you want to streamline your existing setup, it’s worth taking a look at how pallet delivery works.

Different Types of Service

As there are so many types of pallets and just as many different delivery requirements, there are plenty of services available – it’s all about finding the one that works best for you.

For example, if you only want to transport a few pallets at a time, a pallet courier can be used, whereas if you want to transport an entire lorry’s worth of palleted goods, a full load service would be the best way to go.

You could also go for a partial load service if you want to separate a larger number of pallets, or you only have a small number of pallets to transport, and you want to save money on the transportation costs.

No matter how you want to send pallets or what size and weight your delivery is, STR Logistics can supply you with the solution you need to get your products to the right place, in good condition, right on time.

How it Works

Pallet shipping relies on a network of various businesses and carriers, all working together in unison. This is known as a pallet distribution network.

Once you’ve prepared your pallets with shrink wrap in time for pickup, your pallet delivery company will come and load your goods onto their transport, after which they’ll take them to the nearest central hub. Carriers will then take the pallets to their destination, ensuring they’re collected and delivered in the quickest and most cost effective manner available.

This method of pallet transportation can save businesses a huge amount of time and headaches throughout the shipping process, allowing them to benefit from a pre-existing network of well-established logistics companies.

Why Use Pallet Delivery Services?

Alongside saving you money and time, pallet delivery services are exceptionally efficient at transporting large amounts of goods from point A to B. This allows you to move stock around the country in a matter of days (although next day delivery is also available in many cases).

It can help you greatly streamline the way in which your company handles and stores goods, as pallets can easily store up to 1000kg of product at any given time.
