Direct Transportation Ltd

Specialists in Transport

May I take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to you as Direct Transportation, we are a professional transport company (one of the most respected Haulage Companies in Essex) also offering storage and distribution, Low Loader Trailer and Crane Mounted Trucks throughout Colchester.

We have a fleet of vehicles driven by our full time, fully qualified dedicated staff to a standard beyond what others may offer, please see our fleet which is listed below:

Articulated vehicles that offer Cat2 lowloader, step frame, flatbed, skeletal and curtainsider trailers.

Our rigid flatbed vehicles all come with remote controlled cranes capable of lifting up to 10tonne, they have up to 22m reach, easily reaching third floor level where a 1 tonne payload is possible, these vehicles also pull our drag trailers increasing the payloads for maximum efficiency.

Rigid curtainsiders are available from 7.5 tonne to 18 tonne with tail lifts, not forgetting our flatbed 7.5 tonne vehicle. We offer shunt and de-van services from all major ports primarily Felixstowe but also Tilbury and Thamesport this compliments our warehouse facility which is 20k sq ft where we operate our pick and pack service. Counterbalance and Combi lifts are used giving us maximum flexibility when loading/unloading.

Being in partnership with a major pallet network also enables us to offer a national same day / next day service at very competitive rates. As well as above we also offer a full Shipping and Forwarding service of which we have hand-picked our Global partners to ensure the best possible service and rates available.

Would not have used a better transport company to collect and deliver for us. Our customer praised Direct Transportation for their proffessionalism and reliability. We now use Direct Transportation for all jobs especially with their expertise with the use of hi-ab cranes.
