Hargreaves Bulk Haulage

Hargreaves Services plc delivers key projects and services in the infrastructure, energy and property sectors.

Listed on AIM (LON:HSP) and headquartered in Durham, our 2,000+ employees are spread around the world delivering a vast array of projects and services.

Our history is steeped in coal through mining, sourcing, processing and blending, moving and handling. We still have a number of operations and services in the Mining & Minerals sector and now possess one of the largest mobile plant fleets in Europe, but today Hargreaves delivers much more.

After a series of strategic acquisitions, our land portfolio across the UK has increased to in excess of 18,000 acres. Our focus now is on adding value to this land through development with residential housing and renewable energy schemes.

Whilst we still carry out our traditional activities such as industrial services and logistics, these have now broadened to incorporate renewable energy, civil engineering and land restoration and remediation.

Take a look at the various sectors we work in to find out more.

With a network of depots throughout the country, Hargreaves Logistics is ideally placed to offer delivery solutions to customers at local, regional and national level.

Hargreaves operates a fleet of more than 250 vehicles, in both our own and our clients’ liveries, and that fleet is enhanced by the use of some 250 dedicated sub-contract vehicles. This winning combination not only gives us greater capacity than most of our competitors; it also gives us a huge degree of flexibility – something we know is appreciated by Hargreaves’ customers throughout the UK.

Continuous investment in our vehicle fleet – a fleet that includes artics, eight-wheelers, walking floors, and insulated vehicles – is coupled with a sophisticated GPS satellite tracking system and 360 degree cameras fitted to all our vehicles.

Our team of traffic managers know exactly where each vehicle in our fleet is at any minute of the day; and this means we can offer a positive response to customers’ requirements – no matter how short the notice.
