Based at Tilbury Docks in Essex, Sebtrans started modestly with two second hand trucks. The company, which provides UK-wide container distribution services for national logistics companies including Maritime, McIntyre and Maze, has enjoyed healthy grown since its launch and now runs a fleet of 10 trucks and four skeleton trailers.
Sebtrans currently employs a staff of 14 people, operating from all the UK’s main ports and providing distribution services to all parts of the country.
After initially purchasing second hand vehicles for his operations, Sebastian began working with Axis Fleet Management in 2015. He discovered the full maintenance contract hire solution offered by Axis was a much better option for his business so he took delivery of three new tractors to support his growing operations. Sebtrans now leases a total of six tractors on full maintenance hire contracts, including three DAF XF460 6x2s and three 6×2 MAN XLX 480 horse power tractor units, as well as its fleet of four skeleton trailers through Axis.
Linking up with Axis has been a hugely positive development for the progress of Sebtrans. “They have been brilliant, especially for a relatively small business like mine,” says Sebastian. “Many of the bigger fleet management companies wouldn’t have even spoken to an emerging business like Sebtrans, let alone taken the time to get to know and understand our requirements, but Axis has been really supportive from day one.
“The full maintenance hire solution has been perfect for our business. It gives us cost-effective access to brand new vehicles which is great for our drivers who appreciate the comfort and performance of the tractors. It also means much greater reliability and much less down time for the vehicles we operate.
“Axis has great people who are always easy to deal with,” continued Sebastian. “They have always delivered what they promise and have been great in sorting out any issues that do arise.”
