Quality is never compromised in Relay operations. Our achievement of ISO 9001 accreditation and the FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Bronze standard for haulage companies demonstrates the high priority we place on all aspects of safety, operational excellence, fuel efficiency and vehicle emissions reduction in the operation of Relay's technical transport services.

In a specialist transport logistics marketplace that demands precision, reliability and flexibility, our people and our fleet must be best in class among haulage companies. Relay provides exceptional specialist technical transport services, with experience in the logistics and handling of a very wide range of vulnerable and bulky customer assets, from moving computer equipment or  multi-function printers (MFPs) to the transport of laboratory and medical equipment, most of which is critical to the end user’s operations.

We offer:

  • Equipment transport via over 60 custom built, climate controlled, tail-lift, air-ride vehicles undertaking technical transport services out of our four nationwide depots
  • More than 100 driving staff used in technical transportation trained in customer care and machine handling
  • The very latest specialist handling equipment to easily overcome the logistics issues of awkward sites that haulage companies frequently have to contend with, especially when providing our specialised transport and technical services involving the damage free movement and installation of high value, bulky and fragile customer assets  
  • Positioning and unpacking of transported equipment
  •  Relay's technical transport services also include the collection, transport and safe disposal of packaging and redundant equipment, including collecting and moving computer equipment for disposal, in full compliance with Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) regulations
