We deliver the complete service to the drinks manufacturing industry, sourcing, supplying, and distributing glass bottles across the country. We have provided bottle transportation services to businesses across the UK since 1945, and our combination of experience and forward thinking enables us to give unparalleled service to clients large and small.

We have our own fleet of trucks that can be used for deliveries between 10 and 60 pallets. The main wagon has a payload of 32 pallets (2 layers of 16), when the trailer is attached this adds another 28 pallets (2 layers of 14) giving a total of 60 pallets. A full load can be mixed and will invariably make the delivery more cost efficient, we will also consider a shared load dependent on location.
For smaller orders we use 2 of the UK's leading hauliers both of whom give you the option of following day or economy deliveries. A lot of our customers have restricted access to their sites and need timed deliveries. With our bottle transportation services both our hauliers operate 7.5 tonne vehicles with tail lifts, negating the need for fork lift trucks and will always phone ahead with an estimated time of arrival.
For full loads we can arrange for the stock to be delivered straight from the manufacturer to your site or chosen bottle destination. Where customers have their own transport we can arrange for you to pick up at our warehouse or at various other depots located throughout the UK.
Alongside our bottle transportation services, our warehouse team can re-pack, re-sort and re-pack almost any size of pallet. No job is too small as we will consider any quantity of pallets. Booking can be arranged over the phone for this service but please consider the lead time required to get the stock to us when planning the job.
For glass being delivered by haulier or picked up by the customer we provide a £7.50 per pallet shrink wrap service. This is not required on our own vehicles as they have been designed to the exact pallet dimensions, and our drivers trained in glass handling. For haulier deliveries it's compulsory and for customer pick up loads it's optional. We recommend you use this facility as it gives the bottles added protection for the duration of your journey.
We carry a standard range of cardboard cartons and inserts for bottles ranging in size from 250 ml to 1 litre. Although most of our business is generated through the standard packs we can provide you with whatever your specific product needs, including individual styles and different case sizes.
We work very closely and share our premises with Thames Distillers. They are also a family business: Charles Maxwell is the 11th generation of his family to become a distiller. Most of their work is based on customers going to them with an idea and a brief of the style and flavour of a product they'd like to make. They have turned many customers' dreams into a reality, and will assist you at all phases of the product's development with full confidentiality.
