Pulling their weight on road to suc­cess

Sunderland Echo - - Retro -

Ferguson’s Trans­port was haul­ing its way to suc­cess in Sun­der­land. And the com­pany was be­ing helped on the way by a new con­tract from Nis­san.

The com­pany moved into Sun­der­land three years ago, when they took over Clark’s Haulage which was based at Wood­vine Ter­race, in Hen­don.

Now, with busi­ness well and truly grow­ing, the trans­port firm has just opened a new de­pot in the Castle­town area.

At a spe­cial func­tion to mark the open­ing, vin­tage cars were pa­raded and guests from ports, com­pa­nies and Sun­der­land Bor­ough Coun­cil were present.

The com­pany has a to­tal fleet of 100 ve­hi­cles, mainly ar­tic­u­lated lor­ries, split be­tween Wear­side and Blyth.

The Nis­san or­der is for the trans­port of items, brought in to Teesport and Avon­mouth from Ja­pan to the Wash­ing­ton com­plex.
