Kent-based FORS Gold haulier HMF Services (Transport) has called in the administrators.

The family-operated firm, which employed around 26 staff, collapsed just days before Christmas on 20 December 2023, appointing Jake Beake and Wayne McPherson of Begbies Traynor as joint administrators.

HMF Services (Transport), which has its headquarters in Sittingbourne, holds an operating licences for 12 trucks and two trailers and boasts a fleet that includes small vans, artics and hiabs.

It specialised in the construction transport sector, as well as offering a delivery and collection service within the UK and mainland Europe, an express haulage service, and handling and storage facilities at its site at Eurolink Commercial Park in Sittingbourne.

HMF Services made deliveries to FORS-only sites in the City on behalf of its customers. The company was also CLOCS, Crossrail, HS2 and Tidesway compliant.

A request for comment from the administrators has yet to receive a response, nor has there been any response as yet to calls made to its headquarters.
