Simon Gibson Transport expands after winning new contracts

  • 22 July 2013
  • By Ashleigh Wight

East Yorkshire tanker firm Simon Gibson Transport has taken on an additional plot of land next to its Goole base, increasing the size of the site to 5 acres.

Director Simon Gibson told Commercialmotor.com that the expansion was driven by an increase in volumes from a number of new contracts this year, including a recent win with sand and raw materials supplier Sibelco UK.

The additional land will allow the haulier to extend its workshop, warehousing and office space, as well as provide additional parking spaces for its 75 44-tonne artics and powder tankers.

Gibson said: “This additional land will enable us to cope with the year-on-year expansion we have had since starting as an owner driver in 2000, whilst also giving us the scope to offer more services to customers going forward.”

The company has doubled the size of its fleet within the past 12 months, increasing the number of LGVs it runs out of the site from 34.

Gibson said it took on part of the neighbouring plot of land with Collett Sons, which operates out of the same industrial estate on A W Nielson Road, taking on the other half of the plot.
