Distribution Services

Conveniently located near all major routes connecting Lancashire with the rest of the UK, SCS lies at the centre of a UK and European distribution hub. We offer a wide range of services including next day, economy, dedicated day, booked slots, timed and book in services. These services are not mutually exclusive, and we regularly fulfil same-day dedicated transportation contracts.

Same-Day and Dedicated Transportation Service

From our base in Lancashire we offer same-day and dedicated services that represent the best of UK and European 3PL (third party logistics). Loads do not need to be palletised as we will manually offload. For your added convenience you can book your deliveries and collections online. As long as it’s safe, we’ll deliver it – quickly and efficiently.

The Pallet Network

TPN – The Pallet Network operates a “Hub and Spoke” distribution model, based on the analogy of a bicycle wheel.

TPN Members, independent transport companies in their own right, collect pallets from their customers, consolidate and trunk that freight to the Hub facility at Minworth. This is then unloaded at the Hub and is checked, scanned and placed into numbered bays representing specific postcode areas within the UK, Ireland and Europe. Each TPN Member is a regional specialist with an allocated area.

The pallets are then loaded onto trunk vehicles destined for these specific postcodes and the vehicles return to the Members’ Depots. On arrival at the Depot, the freight is unloaded, checked and scanned before being loaded onto delivery vehicles and despatched for delivery.
