Haulage & Storage

haulage1Full load / part load haulage

Starlings have been involved in General Haulage for more four decades. We can deliver your goods in loads of up to 26 pallets and 28 tonnes throughout the UK on our fleet of curtain-sided trucks.

In addition to offering dedicated trucks for full load distribution, we can also offer a part load service. Designed to cater for consignments too large for distribution via TPN (The Pallet Network) and too small to be delivered economically as a full load on an articulated truck, we group these loads together on a single truck, reducing the cost to the customer, reducing vehicle movements and improving efficiency.

All our trucks are fitted with tracking devices so that we can give real-time information about the whereabouts of the load and, as is to be expected, all drivers are contactable by mobile phone. In the event there is a problem or delay we will speak to you – communicating problems promptly and resolving issues swiftly, that’s the way we do things.

Back load haulage

With trucks throughout the UK on a daily basis, we are always interested in back loads heading toward East Anglia or the Midlands. If you have a supplier that charges you for delivery, ask for an ex works price and see what could be saved.


We offer full handling and storage facilities at both North Walsham and Great Yarmouth, including container de-stuffing and palletising.

Machine and plant movements

Starlings undertake machine and plant movements with step frame low-loaders on an hourly or spot price service – we can collect or deliver throughout the UK.
