Archive news from the Steve Porter Transport Group


As you're reading this news item, you will hopefully have noticed our new look, updated website which we think both looks contemporary and contains all the information that you will need about the company. It is still a 'work in progress' and we will be adding new pages and features in the coming months. You will also see our 'new' corporate image which is being rolled out across the fleet over the next year as we replace with the new generation of vehicles.

It's now six months since the purchase of Red Funnel Distribution and I'm pleased to report that the integration of the two businesses has been pretty seamless - if not without a little drama on the way! The combined resources and knowledge of the two companies has made for an incredibly capable transport provider, but we are still determined to hold on to our core values of service, quality and personality. We will not be resting on our laurels as we continue to improve all aspects of the business for the benefit of our customers, staff and suppliers.

As the largest independent carrier on the Isle of Wight, I am delighted to announce that we have signed up as a local partner to 'EcoIsland', which is the knowledge hub working to turn the Island into a largely self-sustaining and eco-friendly community by 2020. While a transport company may, to the outsider, be in the least green industry going, our use of new technology, double-deck trailers, freight consolidation and vehicle utilisation - vital for economic reasons - have had the unintended effect of making us quite 'green'. It will also give us the opportunity to explore new technologies for powering local vehicles and for looking at renewable energy to minimise our use of conventional power sources.

As we approach the end of 2011, I would like - on behalf of all of us at Steve Porter Transport and Technical Packing Services - to wish you all an enjoyable Christmas break and a healthy and successful New Year.

Steve Porter
