Hub Extension For UPN
Over the last year UPN has experienced an incredible 30% increase in pallet consignments coming through the network. In order to facilitate this growth UPN has recently begun work in extending its central hub facility at Fradley Park, Lichfield from 120,000 square feet to 170,000 square feet.
Andrew Lowe, UPN Director commented “The investment in the hub, staff and equipment is essential to the whole network and demonstrates our commitment, not only to our members, but also our customers in delivering a first class service as pallet numbers increase. Staff numbers have also increased by 10% to compliment the team we already have in place. We are also investing in our forklift fleet and now have more than 40 available for the transshipment of pallets.”
The growth experienced in this sector has been driven by businesses throughout the UK and Europe recognising the value and environmentally sustainable solution that a palletised freight network can bring.
