All ADR vehicles are equipped with on board food grade compressors to facilitate the safe and uncontaminated discharge of the consignments being carried. All vehicles are equipped with satellite tracking providing vital information on positioning as well as fuel consumption adhering to our commitment to a greener environment.
All tanker chassis within the fleet are built to ADR specification. They have at all times a DOE certificate along with a valid ADR certificate. They are capable of carrying either 20ft, 30ft or 33ft tank containers.
40ft - 45ft Chassis
All are built to ADR regulation and carry a valid DOE certificate along with an ADR certificate. These chassis are capable of carrying 1 x 40ft box container, 1x 45ft box container, 2 x 20ft empty tank containers or 1 x 30ft empty tank container.
All tipping chassis are built to ADR specification and carry a valid DOE certificate along with an ADR certificate. The tipping chassis is designed to carry a 20ft tank container which requires extreme elevation in order to discharge the product.
The company operates road tanker for both the chemical and food industries. Some of the chemical road tankers are rubber-lined for the carriage of specific dedicated products, others are stainless steel. All carry both DOE and ADR certificates.
Food grade road tankers are also operated by the company and vary in sizes; all carry a valid DOE certificate.

South Coast operates ISO tank containers for the pharmaceutical and food industries. Their sizes range from of 17,500lts to 35,000lts.
These feature a complex floor system of geared sliding planks which work in groups to shimmy the load in (or out) using inertia and friction between the sliding planks and the loose or palletted load.
The system is ideally suited to wood chips or recycled products, which may be unloaded quickly and easily by the driver alone without the dangers associated with traditional tipping trailers.
These specialist roof-loaded, curtainsided trailers are much in demand for carrying bio-waste, wood chip, sawdust and bark to the latest carbon neutral wood burning power stations or for reprocessing into board and other products.
These trailers provide the ability to unload the consignment via the side as the curtains can be slide to the front or the rear. Their dimensions include 2.6mtr internal height with 13.6mtr internal length.
The company operates both single and dual temperature controlled trailers with dimensions of 2.6mtr internal height and 13.6mtr internal length.
