About us

Matthews Haulage Ltd is a family owned general haulage company established in 1975 and based in Hertford since 1977. We have been in our own premises since 1984 which we have expanded twice since to flourish into the 1.2 acre site we now enjoy. Set up by Trevor and Nick Matthews who both drove 35cwt Bedford vans to start with, Matthews Haulage Ltd has meticulously grown into the ‘Rolls Royce’ company it is today. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile (no pun) to ensure the satisfaction of all our customers large or small. We provide a first class service at a competitive price using a modern, smart fleet with smart, conscientious drivers. We have a highly motivated management team who will help you with all your needs you hardly have to think for yourself!

We are members of the Pall-Ex (UK) Ltd pallet network who are regarded as the No1 pallet network moving up to 15,000 pallets per night for its 100 (approx) members. Pall-Ex was started in 1996 by Dragons Den star Hilary Devey.

Having been going for 37 years there is a lot of history, so please visit our nostalgia page.
