Need HIAB lifting?
Our experienced crane operatives can lift and haul a variety of heavy objects, using our long reach and heavy load HIAB lorry loaders. We also offer crane hire on site as well as contract lifting services, including an appointed person.
Containers + Freight
Need to move a container?
Highway Logistics can safely transport a container for you, with or without the use of a HIAB crane. A standard container truck with a skeletal trailer will move your container for you, if you have your own lifting. Alternatively, a HIAB crane equipped vehicle is used to deliver and lift off your container. We also offer shipping container import and export along with freight forwarding management.
Pallet Transport and delivery
Offering a complete solution for the daily management and delivery of palletised freight across the UK. Our fully trained drivers and customer service team are able to utilise our flexible fleet of vehicles to ensure we collect and deliver your consignment on time and intact.
Traction Only Haulage
We offer traction only haulage
One of the services we offer is traction only services, we can grab a loaded trailer and deliver it to wherever it needs to be. Finding a company with this kind of flexible approach that doesn’t come with a hefty price mark-up isn’t easy, so it might be a relief to hear that Highway Logistics can help!
All Road haulage needs
Highway Logistics can transport a variety of general goods, using our curtain sided trailers, from one pallet to full loads. Our general haulage network operates across the United Kingdom, transporting goods from beer to chemicals.
Plant and Heavy Haulage
Heavy Haulage Specialists
The equipment known as ‘plant’ often forms the backbone for a huge variety of industrial activity, but its large and heavy nature means it can be difficult to transport the equipment from place to place. We’ve got plant haulage and heavy haulage covered.
Abnormal Loads and STGO
As well as general haulage, our heavy haulage vehicles are suitable for a wide range of abnormal load movements and out-of-gauge transport requirements. Highway Logistics can undertake and arrange all types and sizes of specialist haulage work, from simple, in gauge, one-off moves, to larger more complex multiple vehicle abnormal loads and heavy haulage project moves.
Industry Training and Compliance
Improve your fleet standards with FORS through Highway Logistics, get consultation on lifting plans or receive O licence training. It is safety and training which are at the heart of everything we do. It requires a personal commitment at all levels in our organisation, which we strive to.
