Established in 1932, Bacton Transport Services Limited provides general and dedicated road transport and distribution services to businesses across the UK.
The company’s principal operations are in Suffolk with an increasing footprint in other regions, including the South East and East Midlands, driven by the growth in demand for the company’s unique brand of high quality, asset-rich services.
Today, the business trades from operating centres in Woolpit, Belvedere, Sawley, and the Isle of Sheppey reflecting the increasing breadth of sectors and customers who choose to work with us.
The company has recognised the need of specific sectors and established successful long-term relationships with key customers.
With the growing customer base comes increasing scale and Bacton Transport now moves more than three thousand tonnes of freight every day, consisting of six hundred individual consignments whilst our fleet uses over two million litres of fuel every year.
With 90 years of trading history, we remain true to our origins as a service driven, owner-managed business with the emphasis on relationships and continuity - building a secure future for customers, suppliers and employees alike while cementing our place as one of Suffolk’s leading road hauliers.
The heritage of the business, stretching back 90 years, continues to shape the board of directors twin long-term goals of sustainable growth and increasing enterprise value.
