Hull Road at Wilberfoss

Slam Transport in Coventry has acquired a 6.5-acre site near York to act as a foothold for haulage opportunities in the north of England.

The site at Wilberfoss is fully secure with a barrier entry system and an 18,000 sq ft industrial unit, complete with vehicle inspection pits, a spray booth, a five-tonne travelling crane, 10 roller shutter doors and office space.

The haulier bought the land from Montracon for an undisclosed sum and to coincide with the acquisition it has also ordered 100 new trailers from the trailer builder.

Harinder Kohli, Slam Transport director, said: “In recent years we have expanded our fleet and now operate throughout the UK and beyond.

“This site has a well-equipped building and a very spacious yard, which can comfortably accommodate plenty of vehicles.

“It’s also ideally located between the port city of Hull and the A1, and within easy reach of the A19 and M62, which made it the ideal location for our Yorkshire base.”
