Since 1984 we have been involved in the transport industry, from the beginning as a drivers mates and trailer "boys" during summer holidays then passing during Military training LGV, CPC, Motorbike, Demountable Rack Pick up Offload loading system "DROPS", JCB Forklift on deployments both UK & Germany. Then onto full time LGV1 European driver via both "tilt trailers and abnormal loads, plant operators loaders securers, then onto passing National & International CPC Qualifications – then a move into the office running busy transport operations at different companies, moving high value loads and abnormal loads again in UK & Europe. These gained our wealth of experience with our team dealing with customs clearance facilities and port booking systems, site visits to both UK & European Ports dealing directly with the shipping lines and port handlers to arrange/facilitate the loading unloading of abnormal load cargo shipments.
Our team also developed these same relationships in the Aircargo "Oversize shipment" by attending loading unloading at LUX Findel, Oostende & Liege cargo airports and to this day we still use the same local agent partners. We realised some years ago that with our wealth and strength of European abnormal loads we should concentrate on pursuing this area in greater detail and this excelled our personal development and client base when we were all working for a major freight forwarder for whom we set up our own abnormal load division.
This grew due to our knowledge and European contacts extremely quickly within five years growing the operation to operating 7 STGO Cat 1 & 1 Cat 2 tractor units and two fully equipped pilot escort vans, and we are all proud to say we became well known pathfinders in both France and Germany and were the first to move completed aircraft wings by road from UK to Mainland Europe in Bespoke trailers which are indeed still moving today on the routes we path-fined for the customer! Our team assisted on many first time by road moves and due to some of our team speaking fluent German this really impressed our principal customers by liaising directly again with ports shipping lines on the ground both in France and Germany.
Back in the UK the team grew its strength and knowledge within the aerospace industry, gaining a good reputation as a mover of aircraft engines and aircraft major components to/from UK - Europe and this grew the client database of agents and other hauliers which to this day we still work with and for indeed this excelled the wide range of abnormal load variety we moved for these agents and companies where they knew we could offer them the complete service from site survey route finding onto permit application process to the actual move on our in-house vehicles or if too heavy on one of our partner vehicles under out team's guidance.
Today sees our team moving in what we firmly believe is the best direction for us and more importantly our principal clients by working as your one stop shop consultants providing directly for you our services; we can act directly on your behalf as your consultants not via any other freight forwarder or logistics provider.
