Colton Commercials has been established since 1979, based in Barking, Essex with a second depot in Coventry, West Midlands. Owned, operated and run by owners Keith & Joan Norman still today we aim for our current status and future growth by being a private owned and controlled family business. As a company we have worked with many major blue chip companies throughout our trading life both as a Transport & Logistics vendor, along with being a commercial vehicle repairer and recovery agent in our early years. Over the years within the business we feel we have built up a good working and business relationship with our various clients allowing us to operate a nationwide service on a 24/7 basis.

Being a family business has allowed up to grow our driving force over the years with the current customer base, however maintaining full control of our business from all aspects. Operating 17T Rigid vehicles up to 44T articulated vehicles, this offers our customers a total transport solution allowing us to handle small consignments up to full loads nationally on a day / overnight service to include weekend and bank holiday deliveries. Being a live news carrier we have a full rolling night shift that operate 364 nights of the year, so we feel we have all the required criteria to undertake work on a consistent volume at any customers delivery request. From being awarded our Bestway Cash & Carry contract we have taken our business forward and increased our vehicle fleet to cater for this awarded 5 year contract, hence with the acquisition of the Tate & Lyle West Midlands contract allowed us to continue our growth to an area we feel we specialise in.
