Supported by our extensive branch network
We distribute packaging products via our extensive branch network. Our sites are located close to key transport links and each distribution centre has its own local warehousing, transport and customer service teams, so your packaging is always close by.
Macfarlane Packaging also has sites in the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe, so we can help you, whatever the size of your business.
Your packaging can be delivered on a schedule to suit you. We deliver packaging efficiently to you via our own fleet of over 150 vehicles ranging from 3 tonne to 40 ft. articulated lorries that deliver 600,000 orders per year.
Macfarlane Packaging is committed to a proactive policy of sustainability and environmental responsibility and all our vehicles feature clean engine technology. At the heart of our logistics operation is Paragon, an advanced vehicle planning and tracking system. We use it to optimise vehicle loading and plan the most eco-friendly and efficient routes.
Paragon also benefits you, our customers. It helps us reduce delivery lead times and we can estimate more accurate delivery times in real-time. The location of your packaging is monitored at 30-second intervals.
