New Hub Opening

The new hub building was opened 13th December 2007 by Minister for Enterprise, Trade & Employment Mr Micheal Martin T.D.

Mr Maurice Buckley, CEO of NSAI was on hand to present each Depot with their ISO9001:2000 certificate making TPN Ireland the only pallet network in UK or Ireland to have achieved this standard.

Depots receive their certificates


Thanks to Depot 118 Deering Transport, Depot 113 Hyland Express and Depot 121 Rockall Logistics, barcode scanning of all pallets is now a reality. Scanning on delivery and digital signatures will now enter testing phase and will hopefully start to roll-out in the second quarter of 2008.

The Safe Network

For many years, hauliers located more than ‘an hour from Dublin’ have been faced with spending up to 15 hours a day in their vehicles. This is at odds with the Working Time Directive, is not conducive to road safety and is wasteful of resources.

“The road freight sector cannot ignore the dangers posed by drivers working 15 hours a day, five or more days a week. The Pallet Network allows drivers to carry more goods in a shorter time-frame.”, says Seamus McGowan.

TPN – The ‘Green’ Network

With TPN, all the articulated trucks carrying goods between the hub and the depots around Ireland are moving at night, when the roads are less congested and so use less diesel and pollute less than conventional transport.

These large articulated trucks and our local collection and delivery vehicles are very well loaded in both directions and thereby reduce empty running. This in turn reduces fossil fuel consumption by reducing the number of vehicles on the road.
