Collett & Sons Ltd, one of the UK’s top multimodal transport, shipping and handling companies, is expanding its Halifax and Goole operations.

It coincides with the launch of its new heavy lift and port facility in Grangemouth, Scotland.

The new depot will complement the company’s headquarters in Halifax, and its heavy lift and port facility in Goole, which has handled over 300 wind turbines since it opened in 2008.

Collett plans to increase its fleet size and transport operations over the next year, and the expansion of its current Halifax and Goole sites will help the co-ordination between its ship, port, crane and transport operations in England and Scotland.

The haulier will now be able to service the transport, wind energy, oil and gas, and marine industries with a fleet of specialist vehicles and trailers.

Collett’s regional manager Gerry Carroll said the company will be offering a superb service in Scotland, the borders and the north of England.

The business specialises in heavy transport, logistics and marine shipping.

It dates from 1928 and has been transporting wind turbine components for more than 15 years.

The Collett group includes Transports & Projects, Marine and Consulting. It runs a fleet of over 100 diverse vehicles and trailers that transport standard and out-of-gauge freight worldwide, and currently employs over 100 staff.
