Crossrail Haulage & Hiab Hire

Gatwick Group is a FORS Registered company, operating fully compliant Hiabs for Haulage and Contract Lifting on all Crossrail sites.

We operate to the WRRR Standard, with our drivers undertaking the FORS Safe Urban Driving (SUD) Courses and completing vulnerable road user training.

Each lorry carries a mandatory “Safety Kit” containing spare bulbs, warning triangles and other equipment, as well as being fitted with all additional Safety measures as stipulated by Crossrail and those recommended by FORS.

All vehicles working on the project must be fitted with additional features such as Side Scan Sensors, CCTV and FRESNEL lenses to alert drivers and protect cyclists. HGVs that do not comply with the increased requirements will be refused entry to Crossrail worksites and turned away incurring financial cost to individual contractors.

These measures will help improve lorry safety across the construction industry, delivering benefits for both cyclists and contractors across London.

Crossrail Consolidation Centre

Using our 11,000 & 4,000 sq ft consolidation centres, your goods can be delivered from the manufacturer or supplier and then delivered “just in time” to site, where space is often at a premium.

Manufacturer’s or supplier’s own haulage fleets may not be compliant or FORS registered, or in some cases may not even be UK based, often leading to issues with compliance and access to sites.

Based at Gatwick, our consolidation centre is fully equipped with lifting gantries and full security systems, to store goods safely and securely until they are required on site.

Our vehicles deliver using the approved lorry routes, as per the requirements set out in the 2008 Crossrail Act.
