The transport of feed and fertilizers from factory to farm was one of the first third-party services provided by the transport arm of A.W. Jenkinson – understandably so given the business’s roots in farming and agriculture. Both feed and fertilizer can be transported by the tipper load or using convenient bulk blower units. Alternatively, material is often delivered in more manageable bulk bags or sacks either using walking floor trailers or smaller vehicles where access is limited.
Although historically A.W. Jenkinson Transport has focused mainly on the haulage of wood co-products, over recent years the growth of general haulage services for major national and multi-national businesses has increased rapidly. Continuous investment in the fleet means that we are able to provide a tailored logistics service to all manner of industries including construction, retail, paper and food manufacturing.
The Company operates a number of specialist liquid based resin transport trailers. These units feature a large 20,000 litre capacity collapsible neoprene carrier tube, securely harnessed in-place within a standard, curtain sided articulated trailer. The urea-based resin is an important bonding agent used in the manufacture of panelboard. Once the delivery has been made, the tube is quickly and easily rolled up and stowed, leaving ample capacity for carrying finished board on the onward journey.
