All our drivers are highly trained and ADR* licensed to carry products of a hazardous nature. Our vehicles are fully equipped and comply wuth the stringent legislation necessary for the transit of hazardous materials. .

As Waste Licensed Carriers we are authorized and equipped to collect and handle a wide range of waste streams, working in partnership with and enjoying a close working relationship with the Environment Agency.

Having our own, on-site DGSA ensures that we remain abreast of the ever changing industry standards, and are able to respond quickly and conform fully to government legislation relating to the carriage and storage of hazardous cargoes.

We service a wide range of customers who operate specific on site delivery protocols. Upon receipt of such an order, our system automatically generates and produces the relevant documentation, highlighting the customer's requirements. Drivers are issued with this documentation thus providing in many situations a bespoke service.

Our clients regularly call upon or expertise to conduct on site H&S audits and risk assesments of their clients premises. The aim is to establish safe and efficient delivery procedures, and following each consultation, a comprehensive report is produced. The report contains observations and offers suggestions to the client which will minimize risk, and ensure that best practice is achieved and maintained.

From the smallest package to an I.B.C; regardless of size or timescales, you can rely on our logistics team to meet your demands.

We provide a comprehensive product discharge service whereby liquids, predominantly chemicals, hazardous and non hazardous, are transferred directly into a customer's site based receiving/storage vessel. Container size is irrelevant, and discharge deliveries from a 25 litre pails up to a 1000 litre steel pressurized vessels can be accommodated. Both an economy and a premium discharge delivery service is available subject to the timescales required. All drivers are fully trained, however, an ongoing retraining programme and auditing process ensures that performance is regularly monitored and standards maintained.

All of our staff understand the flexibility demanded by our customers and strive to help at any time, day or night. There'll always someone at the end of the telephone to help solve whatever delivery or collection issue you may have.
