A Brief History of John Hudson Trailers Ltd

We are a family company working in the HGV transport industry since the 1950s. Harold John Hudson started the company in 1959 at Branton as an Albion Truck dealer and soon afterwards we moved to the current Bawtry site. In those early days John would deliver new trucks personally and then hitch a lift back after the delivery. Our company then grew steadily becoming a Leyland Trucks distributor in the 1970s. After the merger with DAF in 1987, we decided to concentrate on the sales and hire of trailers. For many years we were known as Trailer Supermarket. Today we have a fleet of over 1000 trailers and offer a range of services to the heavy goods vehicle and abnormal load industry. We are a privately owned company, and the directors are all still family members.
