Collett Transport

This family-run business started in the 1960s with two trucks transporting milk to dairies in West Yorkshire. Collett Transport has since developed into an international haulage company with more than 40 heavy-goods vehicles and 70 hydraulic trailers. It specialises in transporting difficult loads, such as oil and gas equipment and wind turbines, and also offers warehousing and heavy-lift storage at its depots in Halifax and Goole, between Leeds and Hull. Under David Collett, managing director, profits have increased 57% a year from £930,000 in 2006 to £3.6m in 2009.
