Reducing our environmental impact


Palletline have been the driving force for innovation since the company was established in 1992. Set up to provide a simple, cost-effective end-to-end solution for palletised freight, Palletline’s multi-hub model revolutionised the haulage industry and continues to deliver efficient solutions throughout the UK and Europe. 

The transport sector’s not-so-green reputation, coupled with consumers’ perceptions that environmentally-friendly services equal higher costs, can often make the decision making process tricky to navigate for businesses and individuals alike. But in reality, choosing a pallet network could actually reduce your carbon footprint and slash your logistics spend at the same time.

According to the Association of Pallet Networks (APN), vehicles operating within a network typically have higher levels of vehicle capacity utilisation too, averaging 71% across the sector, compared to 51% in other road freight sectors, taking approximately 800 vehicles off our UK roads. 

Palletline’s multi-hub model means that its members can input freight into their local regional depot, reducing the distance travelled by 4.5 million miles, when compared to operating into one central hub. That’s a whopping 7.5 tonnes of CO2 that has been eliminated over a 12-month period. 

ISO standards 14001:2015 and 50001 support businesses internationally to manage and reduce their impact on the environment. Palletline are committed to achieving these standards, which require year-on-year improvements in order to retain the accreditations, and have already cut energy usage by almost 20%.

Our dedicated waste management system segregates waste into five areas: General waste, wood, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE), builders waste and confidential paper shredding. This ensures that all waste is disposed of safely and efficiently across all of our hubs.

And with over 95 member locations throughout the UK and Ireland, you are never far from a Palletline member – giving you access to our nationwide services, locally.
