Northern Freight Services offer a variety of transport services. We have a wide range of customers from small local businesses to large worldwide blue chip companies.
Dedicated and general haulage throughout the UK and Europe make up the majority of our distribution business. We also operate with a number of sprinter vans enabling us to make express shipments at short notice for our customers. As well as this we are members of The Pallet Network which gives us the opportunity to cost effectively deliver anywhere in the UK next day, with the help of our networking partners.
Our distribution services are controlled onsite from our transport office in Peterlee by our team of highly skilled and experienced operators, planners and administrative staff. We operate a mixed, modern fleet of over 40 vehicles and over 40 trailers which are maintained on site by our own team of mechanics in our own workshop and all of our vehicles are fitted with state of the art tracking systems, enabling us to pinpoint them at the touch of a button.

The Pallet Network
As members of The Pallet Network, Northern Freight Services offer a professional and cost effective solution for the transportation of small consignments of palletised goods.
We can collect goods from your premises and deliver throughout the UK and Ireland using a network of over 100 of the best independent hauliers. We operate a range of vehicles on the pallet network system from vans to double decked trailers, with 7.5 tonne and 18 tonne rigid vehicles all fitted with tail lifts.
Depending on the amount of pallets our customers send out each day, we can provide hardware and software which enable our customers to produce their own barcoded pallet labels which are scanned at each leg of their journey for tracking purposes.
Our drivers are also equipped with state of the art electronic epod devices which enable customers to gain a proof of delivery within minutes of the delivery being made.Pallet Network insurance cover allows customers to benefit from an increased cover of £5,000 per tonne and all claims are dealt with by a dedicated in-house team.
