Beginning in 1979 with one truck, SMARTS have gradually added more vehicles and drivers, branching out in 1995 into container haulage, with two secure depots, one in Southampton (2 acres) and one in Avonmouth (1 acre).

We now conduct container haulage operations from most major ports in Britain with a fleet of 43 vehicles, plus subcontractors, working mostly within the container market, carrying import and export cargo, becoming a multi-million pound container haulage company. We can also offer other types of haulage work.

We have developed an enviable reputation for providing quality services within the time limits, critical within the industry of container logistics, essential both not only to our own but the success and continued growth of all our clients.

SMARTS is a business combining creativity with sound ideas and a comprehensive knowledge of the market place. The needs of our clients and our desire for success have been the motivation behind the expanding and developing our client base enabling us to compete with the major players in this highly competitive marketplace.

SMARTS views its people as its greatest asset and has a continuing quest to develop this approach. Technology is a strong component in our business development planning. We believe it provides one of the fundamental building blocks in the client/company relationship and will be an invaluable tool in business into the 21st century. The technological advances we are making will enable us to work within a fully automated business environment making not only local but global commerce even easier and more efficient.
