Transport to and from site will be carried out by members of our highly experienced transport team. We are proud to highlight that our lorry drivers are all highly qualified through specific training (CPC certification, Loading and Unloading of Plant, Slinging and Securing). They also have many years of experience in operating and dealing with plant. 

The Flannery Transport team are FORS Gold accredited at every locations and CLOCS Champion, demonstrating our commitment to safety, efficiency and environmental best practice.

We carry out over 44,000 plant movements in an average year. These are planned and executed using the latest technology and telematics that allow us to: 

  • Plan and execute the most efficient routes
  • Keep our drivers (and customers) up to date with live traffic and travel information
  • Evaluate driver and vehicle performance 

All of which ensures our machines arrive on-site, ready to get to work when our customers need them. 

We are proud to boast that we can offer the following: 

  • Euro 6 compliant fleet 
  • Able to conduct the movement of the plant up to 100 Tonne 
  • Fitted with CCTV and side-scan cameras

Getting to Site, Greener and Cleaner

The Flannery transport fleet is equipped with the Scania Fleet Management program, which allows us to take control of our fleet, control costs and lower fuel emissions. This sustainable technology enables us to plan the most efficient routes, factor in real-time changes based on traffic information. It also allows us to alert the drivers and organise repairs if needed.

Flannery delivers in-house eco training to our HGV drivers and transport managers, that focuses on saving fuel and reducing the environmental impact of commercial vehicles. The benefit of embracing these technologies has helped us to increase our average fuel consumption from 3.5 mpg to 6.1 mpg over a 3 year period.

Direct Vision Standard

Flannery Plant Hire are happy to be in support of the Direct Vision Standard, which measures how much an HGV driver can see directly through their cab windows. This indicates the level of risk to vulnerable road users, such as people walking, cycling and motorcycling near the vehicle. This aims to make the streets of London safer of pedestrians and cyclists since its design in October 2019.

The Direct Vision Standard and HGV safety permit for HGVs is part of the Mayor of London’s Vision Zero plan to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London’s transport network.

The Flannery Plant Hire HGV fleet exceeds the Mayor’s requirements and we continue to raise the bar including our latest additions to the HGV fleet.
