International freight specialist Jonen Shipping has joined The Pallet Network having left Palletline, finding the long-term financial commitment of Eddie Stobart Logistics to be a major attraction.
Jonen will cover Enfield, Loughton, Harlow and parts of East London. It is already seeing benefits following its move to TPN: “One of the benefits of our move to TPN has been a better working pattern for our employees, particularly less stressful journeys for our delivery drivers. They are already happier,” said Jonen director John Hodges. “We believe that job satisfaction goes hand in hand with commercial success and we are already reaping the benefits.”
Hodges also said the Eddie Stobart connection sealed the deal for Jonen Shipping with member benefits apparent following its acquisition of TPN in June 2018. “We are intrigued by the possibilities of network ownership by a major 3PL,” he said. “It brings advantages over private equity finance, not least that Eddie Stobart has a long-term interest in our sector and a commitment to the network.”
