All NP Structures PVC-coated fabric buildings are designed and manufactured at our factory in Colne, Lancashire but our deliveries take us all over the country, often on narrow single-track roads to nurseries and farms. Our transport fleet needs to be highly adaptable to meet the needs of our customers, which is why we invest in specialist trailers and lorries to carry our products.
Supplying what is called in the industry ‘ugly freight’, our loads are predominantly complex shapes and sizes which are difficult to safely restrain on normal flat trailers. To improve the efficiency of our deliveries and maintain our safety procedures, we employed an established trailer design company who specialises in bespoke racking systems. The result was state-of-the-art 10m and 13m articulated trailers complete with removable ballast weights and piggy-back forklifts.
Safety our highest priority, risk assessments are routinely carried out by trained specialists and our loading and unloading procedures are reviewed annually or in the event of a change to the system. Our fleet conforms to HSE and the Department of Transport legislation and guidelines, all vehicles are inspected and serviced regularly.
Our drivers have over 20 years’ experience in handling oversized and heavy loads, and are kept up to date with regular communications and training.
