This article focused on how the Transport Association has strengthened its national network by welcoming the Bedfords Transport Ltd., a family-owned enterprise based in Birstall, West Yorkshire, as its latest member. With a modern, curtain-sided fleet of 75 vehicles, the Bedfords Transport Ltd. has established itself as a haulier specializing in distribution for the printing and publishing sector. Working out of new offices in a purpose-built depot, its main activities are haulage, distribution and warehousing. Bedfords Transport was founded in 1924 by Nelson Bedford, who had an interest in traditional horse power and was employed as a groom in the late 1920s. The Transport Association was founded in the 1950s as a self-help group of around 60 hauliers who provide operational support for each other across Great Britain, as well as services including fuel, vehicle repair and maintenance, overnight parking and temporary storage for a network of 4,000 vehicles and 150 depots throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
