The Pallet Network is an alliance of 130 individual and independent logistics depots around the UK. That means we have driver jobs available in every county and near every major town.
Our drivers have two main roles. The first type of driver, who will have a Category C licence, drives rigid vehicles doing local collections and deliveries. Although the job takes great driving and customer service skills, many drivers enjoy staying on their own patch, and getting to know repeat customers.
They'll typically do 25 deliveries in a shift, which is far less than the hundreds of parcels a typical van delivery driver has to manage.
Typically their hours will be 8am til 5pm, but hours can be reworked in order to allow drivers to do the school run before coming to work, for example.
The other type of driving role is trunk driving. This means driving an articulated HGV from the depot on an evening into our Minworth Hub. (We also have two regional Hubs which will be a lot closer to the depot.) Once at the Minworth Hub, drivers turn off their engines, can have a free hot meal on us, or enjoy the kitchen and relaxation facilities we provide. They can even take a shower.
Once their HGV has been unloaded and reloaded with deliveries for their depot, they drive home.
Although trunk drivers work at night, Monday to Friday, many drivers enjoy the quiet roads, the familiar journey and having their days free to relax or be with family.
