Alsop Transport Services - Established 1989

Based by Oban in Argyll Scotland, Alsop Transport Services (ATS), was started by Dave Alsop in 1989. On an owner-driver basis originally operating a 26 tonne insulated curtain-side rig complete with fridge unit operating up and down the West Coast of Scotland. Picking up harvested salmon from the numerous farms in the area and delivering to processing plants. It soon became apparent that the 26 tonne vehicle was too small so ATS replaced it with its first articulated vehicle. The move then came into transporting farmed shellfish, work which is still prominent in the workload of the company today. ATS now operates a modern fleet of tractor units most of which are no more than three years old. We operate throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK on a weekly basis.

About Our Team

All our drivers are experienced, not only in the art of negotiating HGV`s in areas some of which were originally designed for a horse and cart, but also in `customer care` and as ambassadors for the company. They are fully aware that the professional delivery of any job whether a one off or regular, reflects on any future work and the security of their own employment. Any Company is only as good as the `Team’. Especially in an Industry like Haulage where the driver has to rely on their own initiative most of the time, due to the nature of the job.

Food Aid Project

ATS is proud to support a local charity supporting a self-sustainable food aid project funding a community in Bemvu Malawi.
