Tuckmill Transport is a member of The Pallet Network, the largest freight distributor in Ireland.

Tuckmill Transport, based in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, is a courier and haulage company specialising in next day nationwide delivery to all parts of Ireland. 

In 2015 Tuckmill Transport reached the significant milestone of 20 years in business, having been set up by Brendan Morgan in 1995 and, operating out of a 12,000 sq ft warehouse, they became ISO accredited through the pallet network in 2009.

At Tuckmill Transport  they provide overnight deliveries to both business and private addresses, and they serve both urban and rural areas, so their customers are guaranteed a truly nationwide delivery service.  

Their customers' goods are always collected and delivered by local carriers so they get the best service in national, UK and international transport and haulage.

Members of The Pallet Network work together to collect and deliver your goods nationwide. With their on-line Track and Trace service, customers can track their goods from the moment they arrive in their local depot right through to their safe delivery. 

This is a standard service to all their customers, both big and small.

With 23 local depots and a €15M storage facility in Dublin, The Pallet Network has the capacity to handle 5000 pallets per night. 

Located just two miles from the M50, Dublin Airport and the Port Tunnel, their hub is accessible to all types of vehicles carrying roadfreight. There are 6 loading bays, 5 double-deck trailers can be handled simultaneously, and all activity is monitored by CCTV cameras.

The Pallet Network is the only network in Ireland or the UK that has achieved ISO9001:2000 accreditation for both the central hub and for every network depot.

Members such as Tuckmill Transport are experienced local freight companies who not only deliver but also provide their own national and international service through The Pallet Network. There is no better choice to transport freight in Ireland.

TPN recently extended its service to include parcel consignments and every TPN depot, such as Tuckmill Transport, is equipped with parcel vans and tracking technology to provide a truly excellent parcel service.

Under the new overnight parcel service, Tuckmill Transport can now collect their customers' parcels and have them delivered overnight to every county in Ireland. They can offer competitive rates and unrivalled service through TPN.  

“We've gone big time into parcels under the TPN's parcel network,” revealed Managing Director Brendan who is joined in the day-to-day running of the business by his son Darren, daughter Hazel and 23 employess. “We started doing parcels last February 12 months ago and while it was slow to take off, it's getting there slowly but surely.”

A recently signed contract with large retailer 'Dealz' has also resulted in a welcome addition to the company's weekly workload.

“Overall business is going well, we're growing all the time. Service is number one with us and we do a lot of retail work with Dealz, covering Gorey to Cork to Waterford. We started working with Dealz last August and it involves two trucks per night, six nights a week. That has been a significant boost for us and brought us into the retail world.

“The Pallet Network still accounts for 80% of our business. Next day delivery nationwide is a big selling point and has proven to be a great benefit to our customers.

“There's a lot of competition out there but, as the saying goes, we're big enough to deliver and small enough to care.”

Tuckmill's customers' overnight deliveries are personally guaranteed to reach their destination on time - if they don't, then they don't charge you. Do you know of any other transport company who offers this level of customer satisfaction?

The Enniscorthy company has a service to suit all customers, whether their goods are being delivered within Ireland, to the UK, or worldwide. One of the main advantages to their customers is their ability to arrange late collections and early deliveries of palletised freight.
