Fully compliant fleet…

We are proud to confirm that our fleet is now all Euro 6 emission standard. This means we can travel in the new clean air zones as well as the London LEZ.

We have recently achieved a fully direct vision standard fleet. This means all our vehicles can travel in London. This is complemented by being FORS Silver operator.

Euroliner offers additional offloading options

To add to the options available we operate Euroliner trailers in addition to curtainsider and flatbed trailers. These are basically a curtainsider with a retractable roof. This allows them to operate as a curtainsider or allows freight to offloaded via crane through the roof. This means freight that cannot be delivered on a flat trailer can still be offloaded via a crane. This reduces possible damage and increases site safety due to the additional side supports.

Moffett truck mounted forklift deliveries


This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Moffett-821x1024.jpegWe operate truck mounted forklifts (Moffetts/Manitou) for deliveries and collections to sites that have either no forklift or other means of offloading. This means that we can offload palletised goods or items up to 2500kgs. They operate the same way as a conventional forklift, but also work well off road. They are ideal for deliveries where a conventional lorry crane may not be able to gain access. We also find them more adaptable than a tail lift.
All our Machines are maintained to LOLER standards. Our drivers have both years of experience and  the required license to operate these machines. We can supply these forklifts on either curtain side, flat or urban trailers providing a payload of up to 25,000kgs.

Flat bed deliveries

We operate flatbed trailers for deliveries to the construction and general haulage industries. They are ideal for loads that require crane offloading. We have a range of trailer sizes ranging from standard 13.6m to 9m urban trailers. Both types can be equipped with Moffetts for self offloading. We can also offer fall arrest systems as required by some sites. They have the advantage of being able to move out of gauge or wide loads with ease. Flat trailers have now become rare, but we find them vital for some loads.

Refrigerated deliveries

Since 2018 we have undertaken refrigerated deliveries. Either full or part loads using twin evaloper trailers. This means two different temperatures can be achieved with one trailer. We operate them on both day and night runs to either major growers or RDCs across the country. With a 26 pallets or 26,000kgs carrying capacity. These are normally used for foodstuffs or FMCG. trailers are also equipped with digical themotures and can print out load trip temperatures.

With a fully radio control crane means offloading becomes safer. The vehicle has a 7.8m load bed with the addition of a 1.5m pull-out rear extension. It also has twist locks for moving containers. With a carry capacity of 10,500kgs.

FORS Silver Achieved

We are please to announce that we have recently achieved the FORS silver standard. This has taken a year of planning, additional vehicles and equipment added to the fleet and extensive driver training. This has meant that all drivers have undertaken not only Safe Urban driving courses, but also e-learning modules highlighting cycle safety. All trucks have been fitted with nearside cameras and audio warning devices and we now under take additional demonstrative tasks such as recording co2, NOx and PM levels.
This has not only assisted with existing customers requiring deliveries to FORS sites, but also assures all of our customers that they are using a company with a philosophy for compliance, safety and operational efficiency. We also believe that achieving FORS silver will also open new opportunities to us.

Drivers complete Safe Urban Driver course

FORS fleet operator recognition schemeAll of our drivers have recently completed the FORS Safe Urban Driving Course. This involves drivers swapping places with Cyclists for 3 hours to give them a better understanding of the problems that cyclists have with HGV’s. This hopefully reduces the chances of incidents involving cyclists and HGV’s. Luckily a number of our staff are already regular cyclists. This is also an important part of planned progression to FORS Silver.
