Transport 50 World Ranking

International Crane & Specialized Transport's Transport50 has been announced, since 2007 Collett have featured on the index and we're delighted to be in the top 50 once again.

Collett & Sons Feature in the International Transport50

In 2005 International Cranes & Specialized Transport Magazine launched the Transport50, a list of the world's largest heavy and specialized transport equipment-owning companies ranked according to the total carrying capacity of their fleet.  Companies are listed according to their Transport50 Index, calculated by adding together the transport capacity of all modular and specialized trailers in a fleet.

Since 2007 Collett & Sons Ltd have been proud to feature on the list, rubbing shoulders with businesses from far and wide.  Looking back to 2007 our Transport50 Index was 4,406 based on our overall fleet carrying capacity, eight years later and our combined modular trailer capacity of 5,764T and combined specialized trailer capacity of 4,620T more than doubles our Transport 50 Index to 10,384 Tonnes! 

As we continue to invest in new technology and new additions to our fleet, our total carrying capacity continues to grow and hopefully we'll feature on future Transport50 indexes.  In the meantime we'll continue doing what we're doing, providing expert Transport, Heavy Lift, Marine and Consulting Services!
