ABOUT EAST TRANS
Founded more than 30 years ago, East Trans has the experience and resources to provide a reliable, cost effective and comprehensive logistical service to companies throughout the United Kingdom and the immediate European continent.
Based on the east coast of the United Kingdom, East Trans operates from Immingham, with an extensive managed fleet. East Trans has traditionally focused on the short sea container market that has evolved from its historic association with the Icelandic shipper, Eimskip UK Ltd. However over the past years evolved to one of the largest curtainsided operators in Lincolnshire.
East Trans maintains its historic links with the Icelandic reefer container market. Delivering fresh and frozen fish into the local markets and food processors in Hull and Grimsby, East Trans has been able to develop and extend its service to several container lines.
We also offers plug in points at its depot in Stallingborough to maintain the integrity of temperature controlled food stocks. This allows the lines to move reefer containers away from the main ports nearer to the final receiver.
East Trans is probably the largest provider of curtain sided transport movements on the south bank of the River Humber. It has focused its key skills towards a small number, but strategically significant, industrial manufacturers in the region and across the UK.
East Trans operate in excess of 100 curtain sided trailers including Moffett Mounted Forklift delivering goods ranging from a single pallet to a full load throughout the UK.
East Trans is a member of Palletways. which was founded in 1994 with the aim of providing a cost effective and reliable palletised distribution solution, regardless of size of consignment throughout the UK and Ireland.
