H B Holt are founder-members of the
Palletforce network

In 2001, we teamed up with a group of national hauliers to create Palletforce. The aim was simple: to create a nationwide distribution network for time-critical consignments. Typically much smaller than our standard loads, these consignments were intended to benefit from quicker delivery times, cheaper rates and more localised distribution services.


  • Perfect for small consignments
  • Next day deliveries
  • AM deliveries
  • Saturday deliveries
  • Pallet tracking
  • Efficient centralised hub

Palletforce has since become a leader in its field, providing a vital service for local and national businesses all over the UK. The pallet-distribution network comprises 100 member companies, which work together to deliver a more reliable and cost-effective service than they ever could individually. At present, the Palletforce network consists of more than 100 strategically-located depots in the UK.

As a founder-member of Palletforce, we contributed to the vision and direction that led the firm to become the foremost pallet-distribution network in the country. We continue to exert our influence on the company, which operates a multi-million-pound, 400,000-sq-ft central depot in Burton-upon-Trent. Palletforce offers several next-day delivery options (including by 10am or midday), timed deliveries, an economy service and a tail lift service.Our exclusue areas are HU and YO Postcodes
