Woodside Distribution

Our groupage and distribution division, catering for single pallet/part load distribution.

Palletised Distribution UK & Ireland

Woodside Distribution was formed in 1993 as the pallet distribution division of the Woodside Group. Since then, we have grown to become a major player in the UK and Irish distribution markets. Our depots in Ballyclare, Belfast, Dublin, Preston and Liverpool give us the flexibility to serve our customers throughout UK and Ireland. Europe- wide and global markets are also within easy reach, care of Woodside Global, our associate company within Woodside Logistics Group. Of course, it is not just pallets we deliver. Stillages, crates and roller cages can also be managed within our distribution system.

Cost-effective deliveries

We have seen a substantial increase in part-load and small consignment, time-sensitive traffic, and the range of services within our groupage operation is designed to meet this need. Where possible, we will group consignments of several different clients together to maximise load size and minimise cost. The Part Load service allows us to offer you more cost-effective deliveries, with no compromise to our quality standards. In addition, we consolidate time sensitive deliveries into our daily schedules in order to minimise costs.

Time sensitive deliveries

We offer guaranteed next day services nationwide, throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as timed deliveries; pre-booked deliveries; tail-lift deliveries and 2 day/economy deliveries of single and multiple pallets. Our services operate seven days a week, with 2-man deliveries an option if so required. The growth of on-line shopping means that home delivery is a growing service area for us too. We specialise in time-sensitive deliveries. These include:

  • High street deliveries, where commercial customers rely on their goods arriving within specific delivery windows
  • Automotive part deliveries, where car dealers absolutely require next day delivery of car parts
  • Main supermarkets, where out-of-hours and time sensitive deliveries are crucial.

Our cutting edge I.T systems provide a full track and trace service. Our online tracking and electronic proof of delivery provides complete transparency as your consignment travels through the system from collection to delivery.

Freight Preparation

We can ship ¼ pallet, ½ pallet or full pallets.  All freight presented must be securely attached to a good quality pallet. The minimum transhipment process is eight lifts commencing at your collection point. It is therefore imperative to use good quality four-way pallets to negate any problems through the collection, transhipment and delivery process.

Goods should be banded, heat or at least shrink wrapped to the pallet making sure that there are no items overhanging. All freight should be wrapped to protect it from inclement weather during the local collection and delivery process. In the case of high value goods, these should be black shrink-wrapped and security (tape) sealed.

Bag traffic should be protected on all sides and underneath the pallet with cardboard or a similar substance.  We do not carry hazardous goods.

We also have a maximum standard pallet weight of 1,200 kilos with a Tail Lift maximum being set at 1,000 kilos.
