When it comes to pallet delivery, it’s often far more cost effective to have multiple pallets delivered in a dedicated vehicle rather than send them through a pallet network.
Many of our Kenilwroth pallet customers were extremely pleased to find they could have pallets delivered for just under £15.00 + VAT per pallet. This price is obviously dependent on the number of pallets & the distance between the collection & delivery point, but it highlights that Derby pallet distribution doesn’t always work out cheaper through the pallet network system. Often the cheapest Derby pallet delivery option is also the most secure and involves direct delivery in a dedicated courier van.
Of course there are times when pallet networks do offer the best option. Which is why Defenda Couriers insert pallets into 3 pallet networks when it makes sense for a client. Each of our pallet networks have their own strengths & weaknesses & we will select the most suitable network based on the pallet’s size & destinations.

Of course when it comes to buying wooden packaging for exporting your goods you need to ensure that solid timber crates, cases, pallets or any wooden containers are ISPM 15 certified to avoid your goods being refused entry into another country.
All of our DEFENDA solid wood shipping crates, cases & pallets are made using heat treated timber which is ISPM 15 certified & wheat stamped to avoid any problems with customs at the borders of countries you are exporting to.
Our clip lock collapsible & reusable crates & cases are constructed from OSB & plywood board which means they do not require ISPM 15 certification but may take a little longer to make.
