Carters Haulage in Hertfordshire has entered administration and ceased trading.

The company appointed insolvency practitioners at SFP Restructuring to handle its affairs on 21 January.

Established in 2016, its Hoddesdon base is just 10 miles from central London and close to the M25.

It held a standard national licence for 50 HGVs and 28 trailers.

When Motor Transport contacted the company, director James Harrington declined to comment on the circumstances surrounding its insolvency, but he confirmed that the business had ceased trading and staff had lost their jobs.

According to its website, Carters Haulage also ran “a fully operational warehouse that distributes to any destination in the UK.”

SFP was unable to respond as we went to press.
