Celebrating its 30th anniversary by picking up the Transport News award for being ‘Scotland’s Top Chilled Distribution Company 2012’, P & C Hamilton is a highly respected family firm, with a business culture that embodies values, trust, loyalty and hard work.

It will come as no surprise, therefore, to learn that it has gained a reputation throughout the UK and Europe for reliability, flexibility of operations and excellent customer service.

Based in Girvan in South Ayrshire, Scotland, P & C Hamilton boasts a modern fleet of over 20 trucks and 24 trailers, and can offer full temperature controlled transport services to all UK and European destinations on a weekly basis, ranging from one pallet to full load consignments.

The company operates some of the most up to date equipment available and specialises in the movement of temperature controlled fresh and frozen foodstuffs that require temperatures between minus 30 degrees Celsius to plus 30 degrees Celsius. Some trailers are equipped with dual temperature capability to allow two separate product temperatures and improve vehicle utilisation, as well as meat hooks and rails for the transport of fresh hanging bone-in meats.

All vehicles are fitted with a state-of-the-art satellite tracking system, which is supervised remotely from the company’s transport office at Girvan. This allows ‘real-time’ tracking of P & C Hamilton’s vehicles so that its customers can obtain accurate information regarding the whereabouts of their consignments.

Whatever the challenge, P & C Hamilton is there to meet it. The company is able to offer bespoke services to ensure the collection and timely delivery of product to distribution points within the UK and throughout Europe, with its solid sided trailers with Maple ‘Slam-Lock’ locking systems and real time tracking allows for the transport of high value consignments.

Regular services include twice weekly runs for chilled goods (palletised or hanging) from Scotland to the Midlands, London and South-East England. There are also weekly services from the UK to France, Belgium, Holland and Italy for chilled (palletised or hanging), frozen or a mix of both, from one pallet to a full load of 26 standard pallets or 33 euro pallets. Recent additions to the fleet are trailers equipped with the Euro Rail system.

The driving philosophy behind this family structured company is having a personal relationship with the work, as well as the customers. P & C Hamilton value the ‘human touch’ in all aspects of its approach, as it facilitates a unique and well-cared for result.

The company’s strength emanates from its distinct culture; strong and close relationships with its customers; its employees’ competence and loyalty; its entrepreneurial and flexible management capability; its dynamism; its focus on quality and safety; and commercial acumen. Ultimately, the company’s family values and traditions contribute to its long-term growth and success.
