Welcome to Big Ben Transport
A proudly British family-run Norfolk Haulage business.
Having worked for some of the UKs most notable and recognisable hauliers and brands as well as the British Army, at Big Ben Transport we’ve noticed for some time that there is a long overdue revolution required in the logistics industry, defined by its often tired and ageing workforce combined with a lack of fresh, innovative and enthusiastic drivers coming through to replace them, to the considerable environmental concerns facing our modern way of life. Big Ben Transport Norfolk is proud to be at the forefront of this change; pioneering this cultural and professional change from the ground up to the way the logistics industry operates.
What makes us different is our approach; have you ever asked yourself where have all the good drivers gone? A professional Company that is able (and willing) to think on their feet, improvising and resolving issues that inevitably arise in our line of work; a Company that get on with the job tasked with a zero amount of fuss?
Did you know that the average age of HGV drivers in the UK is 53, much older than the national average, and only 2% under the age of 25, many drivers are coming up to retirement while there is not enough young, competent drivers coming through to replace them. The UK is currently short by some 60,000 HGV drivers and it is predicted that by 2020 there will be a shortfall of 150,000 drivers!
At Big Ben Transport Norfolk the average age of our drivers is 30 but age doesn’t denote inexperience, quite the opposite. We recognised the need to encourage young and capable drivers to join the industry, but they will only join the industry when there’s a haulage company that will look after them and recognise them for their hard-work. If you’re looking to join the logistics industry then Big Ben Transport is proud to be pioneering a fresh, brand new approach training scheme where we pay ALL of your training costs, read below for more information.*
We have drivers and our state of the art and modern units conveniently located in Norfolk, the East Midlands, Southampton and Bournemouth. Here at Big Ben we consist of an agile team of professionals combining over 30 years experience in the logistics industry, the armed forces and global travel.
Using the latest and most modern equipment, we are able to commence everything from fixed contracts, one-off jobs to temporary arrangements immediately and are flexible enough to offer same day services because we know that business doesn’t stand still therefore neither do we.
Through our hard work and determination we have setup regular contracted general haulage work with both local, national and international companies and are always looking to expand our customer base. If you are considering using our services then please don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or email and one of our traffic managers who will get you quoted instantly.
We are quite simply extremely professional about what we do. Please contact us for further information from how we operate to an informal discussion or answer any questions you may have.

Quick Quotation from Big Ben Transport
We really hate waiting too, fill in the form below and we guarantee that your phone will have rang within 5 minutes, if it doesn’t, it probably means Armageddon has occurred, in which case, good luck to you. We’ll still attempt our deliveries though.
Thinking of the Future Today
The environmental impact of our way of life has become all too evident but we like our lives rights? We like the holidays, the nice things that we work hard for, that new phone, that new item of clothing and we think there’s nothing wrong with that. What we need to do is simply tip the balance towards making these nice things sustainable. Believe it or not, it’s not that hard, it just takes consensus and here a Big Ben we feel the time is right and the consensus is finally there.
We’re seriously proud to say we are currently testing a range of hybrid and fully electric tractor units. We’re also on the waiting list to be notified when Mr Musk’s vision of the future is made available, the ‘Tesla Semi’. We are currently trying hard to arrange a test driver of one of these in the US as our impatience is getting the better of us!
