2021 – A landmark year for UPN
For UPN 2021 was a landmark year. Despite unprecedented challenges, in its 20th anniversary year UPN broke new records and saw superb growth.
Maintaining an ongoing strategy of strong stable self-sufficient business growth UPN saw an increase in volumes of over 25%. An increase that was 10% higher compared to Pallet Network competitors, increasing UPN market share significantly.
“Our growth has been excellent and indeed has outperformed the sector based on a variety of criteria,” said UPN MD – David Brown, “I would like to personally thank every UPN Member for their individual contribution to the excellent growth that UPN has achieved in such uniquely difficult times.”
UPN has hit the ground running in 2022 with two major expansion announcements.
UPN has boosted investment in its central sortation workforce and forklift fleet by over 50%, in response to the huge increase in demand for its palletised freight delivery services throughout 2021.
UPN is introducing SmartHUB 2, a new facility that will boosts central sortation capacity to over 15,000 pallets per night.
“Our tremendous growth throughout 2021 has meant that UPN has had to significantly accelerate our own development plans,” said MD – David Brown, “These expansion investments are great news for UPN, our members, and their customers.”
