In TPNâ€™s fifth signing of 2020, new to networks logistics specialist Hampson chooses the network on the basis of haulier recommendations.
TPN â€“ THE Pallet Network has signed another excellent regional haulier, Hampson Haulage, and continued its extraordinary success at attracting first-rate, new-to-network companies.
Birmingham-based Hampson Haulage is very well established as a â€˜bespokeâ€™ general haulier, offering Hiab, flatbed and curtainsided vehicles for a wide range of dedicated loads. Its management recently decided to include palletised freight distribution in its offering in order to give customers a more complete service.
â€œDiversifying into pallet network business allows us to offer something new, yet complementary to our existing clients,â€ says director Paul Hampson. â€œWe can now offer a cost-effective service for small consignments and part-loads as well as the dedicated haulage weâ€™re known for.â€
Hampson says that the choice of network was not hard, because various hauliers recommended TPN. â€œI am on the Road Haulage Association (RHA) regional committee and various hauliers I met through the RHA said that TPN was a good network and would do well for our company.
â€œFinding a network you can trust with your goods is hard because your customers are depending upon the other Membersâ€™ performance,â€ he says. â€œWe have built a strong reputation for quality of service, so it was important to me that other hauliers could vouch for TPNâ€™s high service standards.â€
Although Hampson officially becomes a full TPN Member on 9 March 2020, the team has worked with the network under a service level agreement this year, to give them a chance to assess the network from the inside and ensure it is all they could expect.
Hampson says his three tenets of business are excellence, only using trusted partners and drivers, and effective, timely communication â€“ and he felt that TPN meets these standards.
TPN MD Mark Duggan says: â€œWe are delighted to have Hampson Haulage on board and even more so that our own Members are recommending us to friends and colleagues in the industry.
â€œOur Members work with the Hub and each other every day, and they are the ultimate judge of whether we serve their customers and their businesses. Their recommendation means the world to us.â€
TPN is celebrating its 20th year of trading in 2020, and Duggan says the network has never been stronger. â€œWe had an exceptional year in 2019 and we are already surpassing those standards, operationally and in terms of recruitment.
â€œWe have a very strong pipeline of interest from potential Members, mainly because joining TPN doesnâ€™t require a leap of faith. Itâ€™s good business sense because we have a sound business plan based on helping our Members to succeed and delivering excellence to their customers.â€
