About Us

Facilitating more efficient logistics for our customers through the development, engineering and application of practical trailer and loading bay innovation

About

Since founding the company in 1997, our mission has been to develop and supply products, services and systems that improve the efficiency, sustainability and safety of distribution operations. We always strive to give our customers more than they’re used to, more than they’d expect.

To achieve this, we keep our ear to the ground. We consult with people from across the logistics spectrum: transport and distribution managers, academics, architects, health and safety experts, and those at the coal face, the drivers and loaders. And then we draw on our world class team of engineers to design, manufacture and implement innovative trailer, loading bay and lifting solutions.

The key is in the detail. And that’s where we excel, where our passion comes to the fore. We are committed to creating and building carefully engineered products that offer concrete benefits in practice, that work not only on paper but also in the rugged, day to day environment of the logistics sector.

Innovation

Innovation runs through the core of our business. We want to understand if and how you could improve on your logistics operations. We like to challenge and stretch the boundaries of accepted industry standards. And we are proud of both our ongoing development work and the achievements we’ve made so far, which have received a number of prestigious industry awards and accolades. From innovative high volume trailers to specialist loading bay equipment and supporting technologies, all of our product developments generate real savings for our customers.

Corporate Responsibility

Corporate Responsibility

We take our responsibilities to the wider environment seriously. We are working towards a more sustainable future not only for our business, but for the world as a whole. Our whole company mission is based on developing and promoting the means to increase transport efficiency and supply chain sustainability. As well as creating systems that enable streamlined logistics processes and reduced carbon footprints, we have also taken steps to "green up" our products, sourcing more components and manufacturing locally, and working to minimise the environmental impact of our own supply chain. Closer to home, we are also very committed to our work and responsibilities within the local community, where we regularly support charities and not-for-profit organisations through donations, sponsorships and fundraising events.

Engineering More Efficient Logistics

We develop products and systems that save our customers road miles and distribution inefficiencies, cutting operational costs and carbon emissions. By facilitating greater double deck trailer utilisation, for example, we have helped Tesco to cut 25 million miles and Boots UK to remove 14 million miles p.a. Even smaller operators like Thomas Ridley Foodservices are saving over £200,000 p.a. with the introduction of just one of our Wedge double deck trailers. As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainable development, we are dedicated to making our products the greenest available on the market. By restructuring our manufacturing base and focusing on local sourcing, for example, we have improved our own supply chain efficiencies, as well as generating lower unit costs and shorter lead times.

Health & Safety

Health & Safety

The loading bay and transport are statistically some of the most dangerous areas in the workplace, and we take our commitment to health and safety very seriously. Safety, along with efficiency and sustainability, is one of the key drivers of our development work. We innovate and integrate products and features that enhance the safety of operators, drivers and 3rd parties, alongside increasing operating efficiencies. From double deck rear-door and taillift designs to cyclist safety features on our urban trailers, from load weight monitors to double deck lift interlocking systems, from the design and build of our trailers and lifts, to the performance of our onsite installation teams, we pay continuous and careful attention to safety. All Transdek products are built to comply with relevant UK and EU standards as a minimum requirement.
