ETA from Speed and Palletways

Deliveries within a 2 hour window

Your customers no longer have to wait in all day for a delivery. We are members of the only pallet network that can offer a 2 hour estimated time of arrival (ETA) to your customers, delivered by email or SMS text message on the morning of their delivery. This is an industry first and invaluable for home deliveries.


Only one network can offer an ETA. That's Palletways.

Save Money and Add Flexibility
Free Selected Day Economy

Other carriers do not allow selected day economy service. A free added extra, allowing your customer flexibility to choose when they want their goods and meet their deadlines.

A Range of Flexible Pallet Dimensions

No other pallet network or pallet delivery company in Powys or Shropshire can offer five pallet dimensions. Maximum cost savings can be achieved by utilising one of our five pallet sizes versus the traditional "three" offered by most networks. Save money if you send full pallets that aren't more than 750kg, or consolidate parcels onto a mini quarter. True flexibility.

Premium Pallet Delivery Company in Mid-Wales & Shropshire

We regularly hear from businesses who are fed up with their current pallet carrier. Poor service, high damages and no communication, transparency or information on delivery progress or performance lets them and their customer’s down.


They come to us because they recognise Speed & Palletways are firm leaders in the area and can give a leading service.


Cheap is not always cheerful; and using a cheap carrier will bring additional indirect cost to your business. Some of this you can quantify; such as added time, damages and service failures. Most of it is not quantifiable, such as the harm to your reputation in your customers eyes that a poor service causes.
