KDR’s warehousing services are also here to support you when you need to consolidate or split a load. However you need your stock to be delivered, we get it there safely and on time.

03.

Out-of-gauge or wide-cargo capability

Remove the confines of container or pallet dimensions when you deliver on a trailer. Out of gauge pallets can be delivered on a part load or pallet network with no problems.

You have a variety of equipment available for wide and heavy loads. Flatbed trailers are not as strict on load-width and have a lower tare weight so you can load heavier, larger items.

Part load trailer deliveries in the UK

Get the same great service as a full load for a half load or a quarter load when you have several pallets. Part load trailer deliveries combine your shipment with another to give you a cost effective and semi-dedicated delivery, without placing your goods in a pallet network.

Providing greater flexibility for timed delivery compared to pallet network bookings, part load shipments give you most of the benefits of a full trailer load, without the price tag. Save even more when you use warehouse freight consolidation to send multiple loads for less.

    UK road freight FAQs

    Pallet distribution refers to the transportation of pallets, usually through a network or as part of a groupage trailer. Pallet networks are local distribution companies that work together to deliver an infrastructure that supports efficient and cost effective pallet delivery.

    When a pallet is delivered on a pallet network, it will usually be collected by a local haulier and delivered to a local hub. From here, pallets that are going in the same direction will be loaded onto the same vehicle and moved to another hub that is closer to the destination.

    This is repeated until the pallet arrives at the local delivery hub, where it will go on a local vehicle for delivery. The process of moving the pallet from one hub to another is called trunking.

    KDR European have worked with partnering pallet distribution companies for over 10 years, in both the UK and Europe. Contact us for a quote today.

    A pallet service is similar to pallet distribution, except there are added extras. The rewrapping of a pallet (to make it suitable for transportation), relabelling, repacking or freight consolidation are examples of extras that can be utilised with a pallet service.

    Once the pallet is ready to be transported, it will be loaded onto a vehicle and trunked to a warehouse that is closer to the destination. The shipment will then be added to the local pallet distribution provider’s list and delivered, either as part of a route or as an AM, PM or timed booking (which will cost you extra).

    KDR European provide a complete pallet service through our warehouses and distribution network. Contact us for a quote today.

    Pallet networks work by consolidating single-and multi-pallet deliveries onto the same vehicles when they are going to the same area. This allows shippers to send smaller loads without paying for a dedicated vehicle to deliver their goods for them.

    When a pallet is collected by a local haulier, it will be taken to a local collection hub for consolidation. Several pallets that are destined for the same county or area of the country, will be trunked to a hub that is closer to the destination. This may be repeated several times if the area is far away or not on a main route.

    The last hub will be owned by a local pallet distributor, who will then take the pallet to its destination.

    KDR European have built strong relationships with pallet network partners over the course of a decade. Contact us for a reliable, efficient and cost effective quote today.

    Pallet shipping is the process of sending goods in a unitised format. Pallets (wooden platforms moved with forklifts) can hold bags, tins, trays, cartons or many other types of loose units on a single, transferable unit.

    In the UK, pallets are typically 1200mm x 1000mm but there are other sizes in circulation too. Beware that blue (CHEP) pallets are also in circulation, which are standard size but are also returned to whomever the current owner is.

    KDR European provides pallet shipping across the UK, inclusive of warehousing and distribution services. Contact us for more information on our services, today.

    Pallets are transported on trailers and vehicles of all sizes, including tautliners, flat beds and vans. These can be dedicated vehicles for your delivery or your pallet can be moved through warehouse hubs and consolidated with other pallets going near your destination.

    To load and unload pallets a forklift is normally used however, some loading/unloading points do assemble/disassemble the pallet on the vehicle if a forklift is unavailable. Note that not all pallet collection or delivery companies will allow this and will charge for waiting time or a failed collection/delivery in either case.
