YOUR FREIGHT, OUR FOCUS

Contract Hire

Contract hire is the simple and effective solution for all your transport needs. For a fixed fee we supply fully maintained vehicles and drivers on a bespoke service tailored to your requirements. There is no need to have your own operator licence, we take care of all the transport for you. We have vehicles of all sizes for every occasion, from heavy loads and refrigerated units all the way to electric vans. Fully liveried vehicles can be customised to meet your branding requirements. Our contract hire partnership also offers flexible access to the wide range of vehicles in our fleet for special or one-off move requirements.

Our Technology

Our vehicles are fitted with state-of-the-art telematics, GPS, and CCTV systems enabling us to precisely monitor and locate them at any time. Our drivers carry handhelds linked to our central Transport Management System, offering real time updates on collection and delivery information, and instant PODs (Proof of Delivery) transmitted to you electronically. We have a range of options available for API/EDI electronic connectivity for the automation of order creation and live order updates.

Our Workshop

Our fleet is regularly serviced in our dedicated in-house workshop by our team of engineers, who are all highly trained and Mercedes-Benz qualified. All our vehicles undergo PMI (Preventative Maintenance Inspection) safety inspections which includes brake testing on our rolling-road brake testing equipment. Servicing & diagnostics are completed on a state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz STAR system to ensure the on-board computer is getting the best performance from the engine, which in turn makes sure our vehicles are running as environmentally friendly as possible. All our equipment is calibrated and maintained to the highest standard to ensure everything is as it should be. Safety and reliability are important to us, and we operate well beyond the transport industry's usual minimum standards.

OUR FLEET

Goldstar has invested heavily in introducing the latest specialised vehicles to the fleet. We take the environmental impact of our fleet seriously, our new Mercedes-Benz and Daf vehicles use the latest drive-technology and Euro VI engines, providing increased fuel efficiency and significant reductions in emissions. We have emergency breakdown vehicles and technicians on-call 24/7.
