PalletForce – Live Tracking, Track and Trace Service
Track a Palletforce Consignment
The Alliance Computer Network is Palletforce’s customised I.T. system that monitors a pallet’s lifecycle from collection to delivery. Palletforce customers are able to review and track orders online using the system. The Alliance Computer Network also provides Palletforce’s member companies with a tool to analyse pallet volumes and performance using the system’s information management functions. The system also includes a delivery address tool to verify address information using the latest data from the Royal Mail.
In order to track a pallet, a Palletforce Tracking Number, Consignment Number or Customer Reference is required. To track a shipment, visit www.palletforce.com.
Palletforce Company Information
Palletforce is made up of 87 member companies that are also independent transport companies. Each member company has an equity share in Palletforce, meaning it is owned by its members. The company’s distribution network includes more than 100 depots across the United Kingdom and Europe. Palletforce’s flagship state-of-the-art distribution hub is located in Burton-upon-Trent in the Midlands of England, close to the A38. The company’s hub is one of the largest centres of its kind in Europe with 400,000 square feet.
Palletforce uses a shared delivery network to maximise efficiency and move freight quickly. The company’s central hub in Burton-upon-Trent allows member companies to work together when transporting freight. Each member company delivers their goods to the hub, which is strategically located close to the centre of the UK. Once their goods are delivered ‘half way’, member companies pick up goods from other hauliers before returning to their base depot. This prevents transport companies from delivering loads in one part of the country and returning to their base with an empty lorry. According to Palletforce, 85 per cent of the company’s network trucks operate full. By comparison, the company estimates that traditional fleets run at approximately 50 per cent full.
Palletforce delivers small and large consignments 24 hours a day throughout the year. With strategically located depots across the United Kingdom and partner depots throughout Europe, Palletforce offers timely and reliable deliveries with a high-tech distribution network.
The company has been awarded several honours in recent years, including being recognised as the ‘Pallet Network of the Year’ by the Institute of Transport Management. Palletforce has also been recognised by International Freighting Weekly and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). The company also won the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award in 2014 for the fifth consecutive year.
Palletforce handles consignments of any size, including delivery of a single pallet and larger loads with multiple items. In addition to standard services within the United Kingdom, Palletforce also provides bespoke services such as warehousing and order picking, European and international deliveries, same-day express delivery, and other customised services. The company also provides daily collections.
