As with all the A.T. Bone operations, the haulage concern started from humble beginnings.
Our first entry into haulage was around 35 years ago with the acquisition of a cattle float. This was used almost exclusively for the transportation of our own livestock to and from grazing land and eventually to market.
As the agricultural industry changed and the livestock numbers dropped, grain production became more prevalent and our transport requirements altered. Soon we acquired a Leyland Bison 6 x 4 dropside tipper. This enabled us to haul a wide variety of agricultural products, and not just for ourselves - as such we started hauling for local merchants.
Soon it became clear that the lorries could fulfil many more needs both in our own business and that of other industries further afield. Low loaders were added to the trailer fleet initially to distribute AT Bone machinery around the south east. This function has grown organically and now the movement of a wide range of clients' equipment forms the greater part of the fleets workload.
The bulk haulage, however, is still the backbone of ATB Transport. The lorries operate under strict UKASTA guidelines of hygiene and are sanitised regularly. Coupled with there up-to-date, on-board weighing systems and rear view closed circuit TV, we can satisfy any customer requirement and remain well within current or future legislation.
We endeavour to accomodate all reasonable requirements from our customers and can offer a multi facetted approach to many operations. These include loading/unloading facilities, storage, transhipping and strategic placement of problem items thanks to the wide range of complimentary equipment we have access to.
As with all A.T. Bone operations we aim to offer the highest standards of service and safety, coupled with modest pricing.
