TPN has launched new livery, which comes with the strapline THE Pallet Network.

The refreshed livery is being sported by a number of members including TPN Gold Performance winner Express Logistics (Harrow), TWE Haulage and SCS Logistics.

Express Logistics (Harrow) has chosen to re-livery a double decker trailer in TPN’s new colours, whilst TWE Haulage and SCS Logistics have re-liveried a number of collection and delivery vehicles.

TPN recently added Abacus International Shipping and Butlers of Kent to its 108-strong membership.

TPN MD Mark Duggan told MT that the new livery is being gradually rolled out across TPN’s membership.

“Members have responded very positively to it. In fact the re-livery was driven by TPN’s members who were very keen that not only the TPN brand but also the full name be shown in the livery. It’s popular because It modernises the brand whilst keeping the TPN logo,” he added.

Duggan said the network is continuing to grow following its MBO last year.

"Last year we shifted more than 3.5 million pallets and this year we are running way ahead of that. Just after Easter rates peaked, up 22% higher year-on-year, and that is still strong now, up 18% compared to last year," he said.

Last February Duggan led a management buy-out of TPN, which he said has enabled the network to become more strategic. “The MBO allowed a new management team to put together a collective strategy for the next four years, rather than just a hub strategy,” he said.
