The beating heart of our business lies in our comprehensive Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) operation. Overseen by a planning team boasting decades of experience in an industry that requires expert levels of organisation, our tireless fleet operates all over the UK and is geared towards finding the most cost-effective and efficient solutions for our customers.
Our Services and Solutions
Our roster of professional and experienced drivers are fully trained and up-to-date with all road freight regulations. What's more, aligned with the core values of our business, you'll find them to be friendly, courteous and well-presented.
Range of HGVs
Our fleet of HGVs includes a wide range of trailer types including box van, curtain side, flatbed, and skeletal. In addition to contract work and general haulage, we're happy to take on ad-hoc HGV requests from all over the UK.
We use the latest tracking technology with all of our vehicles to ensure real-time location visibility for the customer, from the beginning of your product's journey until its final destination.
All our drivers carry portable devices that allow for signatures and a timely turnaround for proof of delivery (P.O.D) documents. Our sophisticated visual reporting also offers key performance indicators (KPIs) - including customer ratings and time taken – to ensure that our levels of customer service remains exceptionally high at all times.
Key Hubs Throughout UK
Our HGV locations throughout the UK give us a strategic advantage in terms of delivery times and efficiency. We have a range of vehicles based in the key logistical hub of the Midlands during the week, while regular weekly routes to and from Scotland, and daily routes to and from the North East and North West of England allows customers to take advantage of part load services.
Our HQ in Teesside has become the preferred outbase for a number of our retail clients who are able to trunk product to us overnight, scheduled for delivery in our vehicles the following day.
What's more, the Freeport status set to be afforded to Tees Valley will make it the largest secure customs zone in the UK.
This new national hub for international trade is designed to reduce administrative burdens and tariff controls, benefiting businesses by easing the customs procedure. Given our location, it puts ourselves and our customers in a prime spot to take advantage of the new Freeport.
We offer a seamless cross-dock service that can help reduce clients' requirement for warehousing solutions, or to overcome access issues by cross-docking product from larger vehicles to smaller vehicles.
We track and monitor the entire process as inbound goods arrive at our warehouse, are then unloaded and scanned, before being reloaded for the outbound journey and the last mile leg. We offer short-term, medium-term, and long-term pallet storage options.
With two sites at our disposal totalling over 45,000 square feet of space, our warehouses can be used for both short-term and long-term storage solutions for volumes both large and small. We also have the capability and flexibility of increasing storage space beyond our existing capacity if and when required. ISO9001 certified and boasting the latest digital management systems, our warehouse solutions cover all aspects of e-commerce storage services.

Our experienced team will be happy to chat or meet with existing or new customers to discuss your HGV requirements. We'll put our expertise to good use and recommend ways to streamline your requirements to make them more cost-effective. Our 24/7 operation means you can contact us any day of the week, at any time.

Leading the Way
in HGV Operation
HGVs and their drivers are the lifeblood of the UK's economy, and the logistics operations behind them are the beating heart. Integral to the country's supply chain and allowing businesses to trade successfully with the goods that they require, it is estimated that over £124 billion in gross added value (GVA) is contributed from this sector alone.
External factors including Brexit and the Covid-19 pandemic have had a profound effect on the logistics sector, and so the importance for businesses to work with reliable, professional, and experienced logistics companies like Last Mile Logistics has become paramount.
In our combined 65 years in the industry, we've seen it all and have remained on top of the detail, ensuring our drivers and fleet abides by all regulations, including driver health, road safety, and freight security.
Our agile approach and forward-facing outlook also means we're leading the way on technology, from vehicle tracking to smart warehousing. Above all, we place exceptional levels of customer service at the forefront, and take immense pride in the complimentary feedback and returning custom of our longstanding clients.
