SJ Bargh is proud to be a founder-member of Palletforce, the UK’s leading palletised distribution network, which offers significant efficiency savings compared to conventional distribution methods.

The network is made up of some of the country’s most highly-respected logistics operators who have more than 100 strategically located depots throughout the UK and Ireland. They work together via a central world-class Hub at Burton-upon-Trent, to transport customers’ goods to their destinations efficiently and cost effectively.

Unlike most other pallet networks, every member shows equal interest and responsibility for the success of the Business, creating an unrivalled commitment to quality and service, with clear advantages to our valued clients.  Palletforce is currently investing £50 million in its new national distribution hub.  SJ Bargh / Bassetts combined are currently the largest single inputters into the hub.
