Hamblion Transport is a family run general haulage business with over 50 years experience of handling, storing and transporting goods across mainland UK. We are situated in Colchester, Essex with convenient access to main roads to and from the busy ports of Felixstowe, Ipswich, Harwich, Tilbury and London Gateway.
Established in 1965 by Barry Hamblion, a chance encounter led to part time taxi work. Barry then secured fruit picking and school bus contracts. He saw a demand for additional services in the industry so purchased his first commercial vehicle a Ford transit 35-cwt chassis cab. After this Hamblion Transport really took off and from years of hard work he developed the business and expanded the fleet to the range of various sized HGV’s that we see today.
