COVER STORY

HeavyTorque Issue Eleven: Finnie Heavy Haulage

RHAPSODY IN BLUE

ESTABLISHED IN 2005, LOCKERBIE BASED, FINNIE HEAVY HAULAGE DOESN’T CLAIM TO BE THE LARGEST SPECIALIST TRANSPORT FLEET IN SCOTLAND, BUT IT’S ACROSS-THE-BOARD QUALITY STANDARDS AND SHEER BREADTH OF OPERATION ARE UNRIVALLED. JOHN HENDERSON HEADED FOR THE COMPANY’S DUMFRIES AND GALLOWAY HEADQUARTERS.

Satellite tracking systems are an operational essential these days and I for one have become used to entering a traffic office and giving the attendant display screen a cursory glance. With most fleets, there’s usually a procession of icons up and down the main arterial motorways, with the occasional truck out in the country. However, Finnie Heavy Haulage was an entirely different matter, as its current fleet of seven tractor units was spread over the widest geographical area that I’d ever witnessed.
