The Pall-Ex Northern Hub

We are proud to also provide the Northern Hub to the Pall-Ex pallet distribution network.

The A.D.D/Pall-Ex Northern Hub is based at the heart of the North West in Rochdale and provides extra capacity and operational efficiency within the Pall-Ex network.

The site is a state-of-the-art trans-shipment hub designed to further improve our innovative hub-and-spoke model.


  • Reduces our carbon footprint

  • Handling thousands of pallets a night

  • Reduces the number of pallets transported to Leicestershire.

  • Assists in making all hubs more efficient.

  • Reduces pallet travelling time.

  • Shortens delivery times.


The Hub is operated by A.D.D Express and recently underwent a £1.4 million pound refurbishment. The Hub is perfectly placed just off Jct 21 0f the M62.

The facility currently accommodates 4000 pallets per night with industry leading turn around times.


David Fairbrother Managing Director of A.D.D Express comments “Rochdale is the perfect location for us to develop as it provides space for us and our fleet to grow alongside our customers.

A.D.D has been growing at a rate of at least 10% year on year for the last five years and that has all been organic growth, due to recommendations from happy existing customers.

It took us almost two and a half years to secure the perfect site. Our site in Rochdale will allow us to grow even further, size and location are key and we have invested heavily in future-proofing the entire site.


We work closely with the Central Hub team in Ellistown to knowledge share and optimize the running of Pall-Ex’s Northern Hub for the benefit of the entire network.
