Clarke Transport started out, as the name suggests, in transport and even though we have evolved over the last 50 years into a highly successful Contract Hire and Vehicle Rental company, under the name JCT Truck and Trailer, those early days of transport have always helped keep our focus on what is important to today’s logistics and distribution companies.
Since those early days of buying and hiring out second hand trailers, we have grown beyond all recognition and now manage a modern fleet of over 700 vehicles but we are still a privately-owned family company with three generations of the Rowe family still involved on a daily basis. Our main directors are all ex mechanics, so have a thorough understanding of vehicles and how, regular specialised maintenance is the key to keeping vehicles where they should be, on the road.
We have a diverse customer base, from a local company with one 7.5 tonne box to large multi-national companies with sites all over the UK but all our customers expect and get the same professional, expert service. Many of our customers have been with us for many years, they know to trust us, that we are always trying to do the best for them, that the advice we give on vehicle selection, optimisation or operation is solid, robust and dependable.
The key to our success, is our service and maintenance facility based at our head office in Tamworth Staffordshire, along with a network of approved subcontract service agents across the country, who we work with and monitor very closely, to provide backup to all our customers no matter where they are located. We understand entirely our customer’s needs with regard cost reductions whilst maintaining reliability and compliance, so we are committed to investing in our highly-trained staff, equipment and infrastructure.
From the very beginning, the company emphasis has always been on customer satisfaction, we understand how companies are always looking for fresh ideas and we pride ourselves on being totally flexible. We know one size does not fit all so firstly we listen to our customers, then make suggestions on how we can help.
