National haulage firm expands with new Yorkshire base
A national haulage company has announced that it is expanding into a new base in Yorkshire.
Slam Transport has acquired a 6.55 acre site on Hull Road at Wilberfoss for an undisclosed sum from commercial trailer manufacturer Montracon.
It is launching the new base and making a “significant” investment in its fleet as part of the expansion.
To coincide with the site acquisition, Slam Transport has ordered 100 new trailers from Montracon.
The company now operates more than 450 tractor units and approximately 800 trailers throughout Europe.
Paul Mack, director from Gent Visick, commented: “Industrial sites such as this rarely come available in and around the York area.
“The property is perfectly placed to service both the North and East Yorkshire markets and we are delighted to have secured a very positive result for our client.”
Harinder Kohli, director from Slam Transport, said: “In recent years we have expanded our fleet and now operate throughout the UK and beyond.
“This site has a well-equipped building and a very spacious yard, which can comfortably accommodate plenty of vehicles.
“It’s also ideally located between the port city of Hull and the A1, and within easy reach of the A19 and M62, which made it the ideal location for our Yorkshire base.
“Crucially, this site, as well as our new Darlington base, now gives us a strong foothold in the haulage market in the North of England and comes at an exciting time as we prepare to further expand our fleet with 100 new trailers from Montracon.”
