Dawsongroup truck and trailer has opened a branch in Hull, taking its total number of UK sites to 24.

The independent rental, leasing and contract hire specialist, says this latest branch will support operators working in and around the East Coast port. It will operate together with its well-established operation in Doncaster and Leeds, to form a Yorkshire and Humber region.

The new site’s truck and trailer operations will be overseen by regional manager Scott Bailey (pictured), who has been with the company for 15 years. It will also offer vans and static temperature control products.

“We have been experiencing a significant increase in numbers of our vehicles going into the Hull area, both as the port gets busier and busier and as our rigids and trailer reefer fleet becomes increasingly popular,” said Bailey.  “As a company that prides itself on proven customer service levels, we have made the positive decision to invest in the area with a full branch facility to offer more immediate support to our local customer base. Being located in the immediate area will help strengthen our service offering to operators for years to come.”

The 1-acre site, which will initially open for five days a week, is located off Burma Drive on Marfleet Industrial Estate, close to the main A1033 that runs by the main port entrance.

Dawsongroup has a 12,000-strong fleet of ambient and temperature-controlled rigids, tractors and trailers, and also offers vans, forklifts, sweepers and temperature-control solutions. It is Commercial Motor’s current Rental, Leasing and Contact Hire Provider of the Year, having been crowned at last year’s Road Transport Ball.

  • You can talk to Dawsongroup truck and trailer at this year’s Road Transport Expo, which takes place at Stoneleigh NAEC on June 28-30. It’s FREE to attend, and registrations are now open.
