About us


First established in 1981 as a sole trader business, the Steve Porter Transport Group has evolved and grown into a major niche player in the UK Transport and Logistics industry.

Following the acquisition of Red Funnel Distribution Ltd., we currently employ in excess of seventy full-time staff across five sites in Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, as well as staff embedded in a major manufacturing plant in Hampshire. Steve Porter Transport Ltd. operate 40 vehicles and 80 trailers from around 145,000 sq.ft. of warehouse, office and yard space. Additionally, we use a number of small hauliers and sub-contractors under our direct control to supplement our own resources. Our packing case manufacturing plant - Technical Packing Services - is a stand-alone operation based at Cowes.

We constantly review the range of services that we offer and seek to react rapidly to both customer demand and wider market trends. The company works hard to stay at the leading-edge and to provide quality, value-for-money solutions to a growing customer base. The old cliché of 'big enough to do the job - small enough to care' is still very relevant to us and will continue to set the tone for our future. We strive to maintain the 'personal touch' when dealing with clients large or small.

A wide range of services are detailed within this website and we are confident that there will be something of interest and value to all prospective and current clients. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information or to arrange a visit from our Business Development Manager.
