Bristol Logistics Companies Partner to Deliver Critical UK Infrastructure

Today, Osprey, a leading Bristol-based specialist logistics provider, proudly announced their position as the first in the UK to receive two cutting-edge 4th Generation InterCombis.

This significant milestone marks a new era in logistics capabilities for Osprey, further solidifying their commitment to innovation and efficiency in the transportation sector.

Osprey’s SPMT Fleet Enhanced with
Power Booster Pack

These state-of-the-art InterCombis are fully compatible with Scheuerle InterCombi and Eurocombi modules. The integration of a power booster pack comes as a pivotal enhancement, increasing Osprey’s Self-Propelled Modular

Transporter (SPMT) fleet by an impressive 20 axle lines. This expansion not only elevates their capacity but also positions Osprey at the forefront of advanced logistics solutions in the UK.

By seamlessly integrating the power booster module and power pack with various modular trailer combinations, Osprey elevates the traction and pulling power capabilities of their entire fleet. This technological advancement is akin to adding an extra tractor to each trailer, emphasising Osprey’s commitment to staying ahead of the curve in the logistics industry.

“The procurement of these power booster modules and power packs empowers us to transform standard dumb axle modules into versatile SPMTs,” says Dean Graham, Operations & QHSE Director at Osprey. “This strategic enhancement significantly broadens our capability to handle diverse transportation needs with greater efficiency and versatility.”

A Powerful Duo: Osprey and Kings Heavy Haulage Delivering Efficiency

Collaboration is a key element in Osprey’s success story, and their partnership with renowned transport firm Kings Heavy Haulage exemplifies this approach. Together, they are proving instrumental in delivering critical infrastructure projects on time and with enhanced efficiency.

Kings Heavy Haulage: Over 50 Years of Excellence in Transport

Boasting over 50 years of experience in the transport industry, Kings Heavy Haulage is a name synonymous with reliability and excellence. Established in 1969 as a family-run business with just one vehicle, the company quickly realised the importance of customer service.

“People would ring and book another job because we had loaded and delivered on time, providing good service at a competitive rate,” reflects James Hallier, General Manager, the visionary behind Kings Heavy Haulage. This customer-centric approach has become the essence of the company, which today handles the movement of everything from small site equipment to specialist abnormal loads.

Sustainable Collaboration: Reducing Long-Distance Travel for Efficient Project Delivery

The collaboration between Osprey and Kings Heavy Haulage not only reflects a commitment to innovation but also signifies a collective effort towards sustainable project delivery. By minimising long-distance travel through regional collaboration, both companies contribute to a more environmentally friendly and efficient logistics landscape.
