Built on Experience

A family owned business founded over a century ago, Truswell Haulage has the experience and resources to provide a reliable and cost - effective, comprehensive and all embracing logistical service to companies throughout the United Kingdom.

With operating centres in Barnsley, Douglas (Lanarkshire) and Scunthorpe, and a fleet comprising of over 100 vehicles linked by telematics and upwards of 250 trailers, Truswell Haulage can ensure rapid and reliable delivery of consignments ranging from 50 kilos to 150 tonnes.

This is achieved using the latest in IT Transport Logistics Systems, provided by RoadTech Computer Systems, which are linked throughout the operating network.


Dedicated to Reliability

The key to successful operation is being in the right place at the right time, that's why we insist on maintaining our modern fleet of vehicles in our own on-site workshops. All main operating centers are within one mile of the national motorway network, giving Truswell Haulage fast effective access to most destinations.

Always Professional

Our vast experience doesn't mean that we know it all - far from it. We believe that training and professional qualifications are vital in today's fast moving world. That's why our drivers all receive regular skill assessments and many hold hazardous goods certificates: our traffic personnel all hold certificates of professional competence. The company's overall professionalism is underpinned by its membership of the Road Haulage, Heavy Haulage and Transport Associations. This is further endorsed by our accreditation and successful re-assessment to the RHA Icon Safety Standard.

What our customers say about us:

"We are delighted to have Truswell as our main warehouse and distribution partner. As a chemical distribution company, we need a warehouse with healthy stock levels, coupled with a quick (next day) UK nationwide delivery service. The service levels we get from Truswell allows us to source our non-hazardous raw materials from Europe to Asia and the Americas, all ultimately arriving at the Barnsley warehouse ready to be safely and securely stored, then shipped to our customers. The relationships we have built with Garry, Paul and Andy means that business improvement ideas regularly flow both ways, so all the time, we are looking to make our service even better."

"Truswell haulage are probably one of the most reliable haulage contractors out there. We have been a customer of theirs for over four years now and they have never let us down. Whenever there is a job to be done or when everyone else has let us down Truswell always come through for us. One of the few ‘old school’ hauliers left who have their customers’ priorities at the forefront of their working ethos."
