Inside The Depot

The depot building, once an aircraft hangar, allows us to hold an extremely large quantity of freight both securely and protected from the outside weather.

Loading & Unloading Freight

The depot staff are fast, well trained & very experienced at loading and unloading freight.

They are highly skilled at maximising the depot storage space and extremely efficient at moving freight into and out of storage.

Packaging Freight

Packaging is critical for the safe transportation of our freight. The photo on the right shows an example of alternative packaging.

Although it is both cheaper and lighter, it will afford little protection to the goods held within and can not be safely stacked more have two high, thus restricting loading operations and efficient use of cargo space.

The photo on the right shows how our large wooden crates can be easily stacked allowing freight to be efficiently and safely handled.

Packaging work bench

Inside the depot, we have materials and work space for constructing the large, strong, and stackable wooden crates that you can see in the other photos.

We also have stillages for the handling of loose freight such as shown left.
