About H. Crabtree

We're unique, over 50 years old and provide an extensive range of transport services across the UK, from all cities and towns to the country’s most remote locations.

Incorporated in 1961, H. Crabtree Ltd. is a privately owned and managed UK wide freight management company providing an extensive range of services from national long haul road transport, to short haul palletised services.

We're affectionately known as Crabtree's. If you visit New Mills in Derbyshire, we're woven into the culture of the area, there are few who haven't heard of us.

From our beginnings, operating long distance transport throughout the UK, Crabtree's now operates a fully integrated national network of warehousing, distribution and transport services by road. Today we employ over 80 staff as well as a number of subcontractors from company operated facilities in regional areas.

We have at Crabtree's a creative solution to any transport problem. We're an integral shareholder of the Pallet track network. Location is all important; Pallet Track's 267,000 sq. ft. central hub facility in Wolverhampton is within easy reach of the M5 & M6, allowing us the ability to deliver pallets next-day through the 80 strong member network. This, we believe, is something unrivaled by many UK haulage companies.

While we transport goods all over the UK, we have always put people first. It is this personal approach that is behind our many successful business partnerships. Our staff are trained in the most efficient methods of secure handling, from container loads to fragile product to home deliveries. We make a formidable team, with a total focus on the specific needs of every customer, large or small.
