The Association of Pallet Networks is asking for your support and patience as the UK’s pallet networks meet an unprecedented level of challenge in their role as keyworkers and as a major delivery mechanism for UK plc.
Unrelenting growth and a 46% increase in residential deliveries, along with a driver shortage has been exacerbated by Brexit, and we are still operating under social distancing rules.
APN are asking for patience if some deliveries take longer than normal.
Secondly to communicate to your customers that there may be some unavoidable delays in their delivery schedule.
Thirdly, to work with your pallet network and local depot to ensure every pallet is correctly manifested.
