About Gilbraith (TS) Ltd

Gilbraith (TS) is a well established transport and storage company based in Blackburn in the North West of England which can trace its roots back to 1920.

We offer a comprehensive range of services tailored to meet the varied needs of our wide customer base. We operate from a 6 acre site which comprises over 100,000 square feet of warehouse space, as well as outside yard storage and office facilities.

An additional facet of the Gilbraith operation is its capability to handle traditional rail freight. Our Blackburn site is rail connected, with a kilometre of private siding, part of which passes through one of our main warehouses, allowing for the off-loading of rail freight without having to worry about adverse weather conditions.

Over the years we have handled a wide range of rail-borne product including steel coils, chipboard, bulk liquid clay products and stone aggregates.

Our modern fleet of vehicles ranges from 7.5 tonnes 'rigids' to 44 tonnes tractor units which are allied with a range of trailers, including double deck trailers for maximum palletised load efficiency, bulk tankers and specialist steel coil distribution trailers.

This extensive fleet gives us the ability to provide both full load haulage and palletised goods distribution, the latter being provided through the Gilbraith groupage operation and our membership of the Palletways nationwide pallet network system. Both express and economy delivery services are provided.

You won't find a more dedicated team, just ask our driver who has clocked up over 2,000,000 miles, our operations staff who start work at 4am every morning or any of our customers who we have retained over many years.

Gilbraith (TS) Ltd is a member of the Road Haulage Association (RHA), the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) and the Railfreight Group. In 2004, we were awarded Investors in People accreditation which we have retained through our commitment to staff training and on-going development.
