Holt Transport

Holt Transport in Lockerbie has secured five-figure funding to expand its fleet and resume growth following the pandemic.

The business has acquired a DAF tractor unit, taking its fleet to seven trucks and this will be used for contract work on routes across Scotland and England.

Founder Kevin Holt said: “The addition of this vehicle is important as we win new contracts and grow our customer base.

“We will operate the vehicle on a day and night rota, so it’s a vital addition to our fleet.”

The funding was arranged through Craig Owens, Paragon SME Lending business development manager.

Holt started the business in 1998 and it now employs 12 staff, including 10 drivers.
