Fagan & Whalley’s history stretches back more than 80 years, but our focus has remained the same throughout: to provide a versatile haulage service for every customer, and to nurture productive long-term relationships with those customers. Whether you need local delivery, or national and international haulage, the state-of-the-art load allocation system at our Lancashire haulage centre means that our operation runs with the utmost efficiency whilst at the same time representing excellent value for money.


Full-load deliveries across the UK and Europe are at the heart of what we do, and represent an excellent way for businesses of all kinds to transport goods across the UK. Our bulk haulage service means that we can transport large individual items or extensive multiple-item loads efficiently and cost-effectively. Ongoing investment in our vehicles and drivers ensures that loads are delivered safely and securely, and always with a smile, making us the perfect choice in accommodating your primary distribution needs. Meanwhile, our first-rate load planning and skilful organisation allow us to deliver consignments punctually and reliably; for this reason many of our clients use us for scheduled freight deliveries and ongoing contract work, safe in the knowledge that their goods will always be on time.

Part loads


The size of a load is immaterial - even the smallest shipment is important. Fagan & Whalley provide a first-class part load haulage service which is perfect for small and medium-sized loads. We use the very latest load planning technology to guarantee that our vehicles are loaded as efficiently as possible, ensuring fewer - but more productive - journeys; by consolidating our freight in this way, we can keep our costs down and pass this saving on to our customers. Shared user distribution is, indeed, one of our key service areas as it enables us to assist a larger client base without ever compromising on the quality of the service we provide.

Our vehicles


From humble beginnings, Fagan & Whalley’s road haulage fleet has grown to encompass over 120 vehicles. A long and successful relationship with premium truck builder Scania gives us access to a wide range of exceptional vehicles, bringing diversity and flexibility to the service we provide and enabling a service that is appropriate for every client. No matter whether a consignment requires curtain-sided artics or a single van, we are happy to create a bespoke solution that meets our customers’ needs.

Of course, we recognise that our business will stand or fall based on the reliability of our fleet, and to this end we maintain an impeccable standard of vehicle upkeep. Our on-site workshop provides a comprehensive maintenance and repair facility that keeps every vehicle running at its best; the size of our fleet, meanwhile, means that should the unexpected occur, we are quickly able to organise a replacement.

We are keenly aware of the road haulage industry’s environmental responsibility, and to this end our fleet meets the Euro 5 and 6 standards for emissions.

In short, the Fagan & Whalley distribution fleet offers the ideal road haulage solution in Lancashire, across the UK and into Europe.
