Mixed Freight

Tuffnells is the engine of our mixed freight proposition. Its ‘Big Green Parcel Machine’ is a nationally recognised brand, with a reputation for flexibility and a ‘can do’ approach to more complex distribution challenges.

With 37 distribution centres and over 900 vehicles Tuffnells is one of the UK’s leading business to business distribution specialists. Our national network is trusted by over 4,500 customers, making regular deliveries and collections that are essential to their supply chains.

Making the complex simple.

We specialise in handling items that others find too awkward or irregular to carry. From multiple pallet loads to outsize and bulky items, Tuffnells provides an efficient and timely service, delivering everything from tyres to ladders, to building supplies.

Our dedicated network minimises the number of times consignments are handled on their journey. This secure method of trunking reduces the possibility of damage and is the most efficient method for delivering bulky and irregular items.

With locations across the UK we aim to build strong relationships with local businesses, particularly small and medium sized enterprises with a range of complex distribution needs.  Working in partnership we provide a one stop service, handing large consignments, smaller items, making collections or handling returns as required. It’s all part of a service that’s dedicated to being flexible and customer focused.

We offer a range of guaranteed delivery times for business customers. Consignments are securely tracked with electronic proof of delivery usually available within seconds of delivery.

A reliable road based service into Europe and Air Express service to the rest of the world complements the range of domestic delivery services making Tuffnells the complete distribution service provider
