Dear valued customer,
We are glad to inform you that the European export services are now slowly improving. However, the international hubs are still struggling with a massive backlog caused by the existing freight remained in the network. Therefore, we have taken the steps of pushing the collection days by 10 days. We sincerely apologize for all the inconveniences this may cause, but we trust this decision will help all of us in the future.
Our phone lines have been and still are very busy during this period. We expect this trend to continue well into spring as Brexit has proved extremely difficult for the transport industry. We sincerely apologise if you are having difficulties getting in touch with us by phone and strongly recommend you email us at email@example.com your order number in the subject line. One of our team members will look after your query as soon as possible.
Export services updates
Please be advised that our European export services are currently running slower, due to a backlog. Please be aware this backlog affects all the carriers within the UK. We have taken the steps of pushing the collection days by 5 working days. For all the consignments that have been collected so far, please expect delays.
Dear valued customer,
In light of a new lock-down in the UK, we would like to keep you updated towards our services
and to inform you that we are operating as usual.
Pallet2Ship® has over 10 years’ experience of working successfully with businesses and individuals to deliver pallets throughout the UK and around the world. We only work with trusted carriers to ensure that you and your customers receive items on time and in perfect condition.
Pallet shipping is a cheap way to safely deliver your items within the UK and worldwide. Pallets ensure the different items in a consignment are packed tightly together with shrink-wrap or straps to secure them in place. This prevents the goods from falling over or becoming damaged during transit, so it allows businesses as well as private individuals the option of sending large quantities of goods all over the world, safer. It also helps to keep fresh produce and ambient goods longer. Using a pallet delivery company takes the stress out of shipping goods because it handles complex logistics, saving you time and money.
All good pallet delivery companies should provide domestic and international pallet delivery and offer road, air and sea freight services, including door-to-door, door-to-port, door-to-airport and port-to-port services. Anyone with small items can benefit from a parcel courier services, while people with bulk items can book full or half container loads.
Collecting consignments from a specific address on your preferred date and delivering the goods directly to your final destination are standard for any shipping service but ensuring that your goods are fully trackable and insured provides you with peace of mind that you are using the right pallet delivery company.

IMPORTANT! Information on EORI numbers.
Considering shipping goods to/from Europe? In the UK, businesses, self-employed and private individuals involved in a commercial transaction must register, the same for businesses and self-employed within the EU, so before exporting/importing it is essential to make sure that both you and your customers/suppliers in Europe have the EORI numbers (unless your EU customer is a private individual in which case they do not need it).

The number of customers who have used Pallet2Ship®
Standard UK pallets normally have a base size of 120 x 100 cm, but they come in variations, like the 120 x 80 cm euro pallets or 120 x 120 cm. In the UK and Europe we offer services for five pallet sizes: mini-quarter pallet, quarter pallet, half pallet, full-lite pallet and full pallet. Although the standard maximum height you can stack on a pallet is 220cm (including the pallet height), in the UK we provide a delivery service for pallets with an extra 20cm of height, so with us you can ship pallets of up to 240 cm height. When it comes to other destinations like the USA, Australia and Japan we can handle pallets of up to 160 cm in height using the air freight service and 360 x 240 x 220 cm for sea freight.
We can also provide transport for oversized pallets with a maximum weight of 1,200 kilograms and up to 360 x 240 cm. As a matter of fact we can ship any size pallet even if standard pallet sizes vary by country, and we can advise you on selecting the ideal pallet size for your destination.
