Shetland is where our Head Office is located. At this location we have a depot for handling all Shetland related traffic both north & south bound. Includes a comprehensive general haulage operation, waste handling & disposal, warehousing and storage facilities.

Our accounts office is also based here where all accounts functions are monitored.

We also have a workshop facility based in Shetland. The workshop maintains the majority of vehicles & trailers within the fleet as well as providing 3rd party maintenance services.

We are currently in the process of modernising our workshop facilities and will shortly have the most modern ATF facility within the Northern Isles.
