Woods Transport offers a first class transport service for customers, it strives to provide an efficient, professional and completely reliable service. The light haulage company is highly active in the transport, logistics and courier industries.

Woods Transport has installed the latest tracking technologies and cameras in its fleet to enhance driver security and fleet efficiency. Furthermore the fleet adheres to Euro 3 and Euro 4 standards of emissions. Alongside its fleet the company has access to sub-contractors if required.
The Kent based business predominantly operates in the South East of England, however it does offer its services nationwide. In fact, Woods Transport is looking to expand by obtaining new offices in various areas of the UK.
