Sovereign Transport Services’ 25-Year Journey

Sovereign Transport Services, a name synonymous with reliable and efficient pallet delivery, wasn’t always the industry titan it is today. Born in 1999, the company sprouted from a single vehicle under the stewardship of Steve Radcliffe, fuelled by a commitment to innovation and a “can-do” spirit. Back then, 20 pallets a day seemed an ambitious target, but our dedication paved the way for an incredible upward trajectory. Today, Sovereign boasts a staggering annual delivery volume of over 250,000 pallets, testament to our unwavering focus on exceptional service.

A key ingredient in our success story is our 16-year partnership with Palletways, the largest palletised distribution network in Europe. This dynamic alliance grants Sovereign’s customers unparalleled access to a vast and efficient network, ensuring seamless deliveries across the continent. But Sovereign doesn’t rest on inherited laurels. We seamlessly blend our 25 years of industry experience with a fresh, contemporary approach, guaranteeing clients that our goods will arrive precisely on schedule, untouched and in pristine condition.

With a robust fleet of 60 vehicles at our disposal, and access to hundreds more through the Palletways network, Sovereign’s reach extends far and wide. Whether you need your pallet dispatched across town or across the Channel, our efficient transportation network has you covered.

But efficiency isn’t just about speed; it’s about responsibility. At Sovereign, sustainability is an unwavering commitment. We meticulously plan our deliveries to optimise load efficiency and minimise road miles, actively reducing our carbon footprint. This ethos extends to our dedicated team as well. All Sovereign drivers are permanent staff, meticulously trained in safety protocols and rigorously assessed before hitting the road. Our Health and Safety department boasts IOSH and NEBOSH accreditations, ensuring Sovereign always operates at the cutting edge of industry best practices and legal standards.

Sovereign Transport Services is more than just a delivery company; it’s a testament to the power of passion, meticulous planning, and a relentless commitment to customer satisfaction. From our humble beginnings with a single vehicle to our current position as a European delivery powerhouse, we ‘ve carved a path of success by prioritising efficiency, sustainability, and a team dedicated to excellence. In choosing Sovereign, you’re not just choosing a delivery service; you’re choosing a partner who understands the value of your goods and your desire for seamless, stress-free delivery.

Q What is Pallet Delivery

Pallets are used for heavy, large or smaller items in bulk. They are designed to support the weight of the goods and to ensure your cargo arrives safe and secure. A forklift is used to load pallets onto the loading truck and minimises the risks of damage through manual handling

Q How do I send a Pallet?

To ship a pallet, you must supply your own pallet and wrapping, and make sure that your pallet is suitable and stable for transportation. The next step is to obtain a pallet delivery quote – you can do this by clicking our ‘Get a quote’ button, calling us on 0151 548 1199 or emailing [email protected].

Q How much does it cost to send a Pallet?

Pallet delivery costs take into account the size of the shipment, the weight, and the collection and delivery address. The more flexible you are on delivery times the lower the freight rates will be.

Q What are the Pallet Size and Weight Restrictions?

- Full pallet – 120 x 100 x 220cm. Maximum weight 1200kg. - Half pallet – 120 x 100 x 110cm. Maximum weight 500kg. - Quarter pallet – 120 x 100 x 80cm. Maximum weight 250kg.

Q Pallet Collection – when do you collect the Pallet[s]?

We normally make pallet collections in the afternoon, normally by 6pm. Morning collections and cut-offs later than 1pm need to be arranged in advance, so you’ll need to book a pallet collection.

Sign Manufacturing Project

  • How did Poppy Signs help?:

    Poppy Signs in Chorley became our creative partners for a recent project. We needed four full-colour PVC banners with eyelets and two digitally printed vinyl graphics on anti-slip laminate for floor use. Not only did they stay within our budget, but they exceeded our expectations with their innovative designs and meticulous craftsmanship. The banners are vibrant and eye-catching, while the floor graphics are both beautiful and practical. Installing everything was a seamless process thanks to their expert team. We look forward to working with them again in the future.
