Ian Craig Haulage is highly regarded for its commitment to quality, reliability and delivering a personal service - three traits instilled in the business from the very start, when Ian Craig founded the company in Cumbernauld with a single vehicle back in 1973.

Today it operates from a modern, purpose-built, nine-acre haulage and storage facility in Larbert, just outside Falkirk – and immediately adjacent to Junction 1 of the M876 – offering easy access to routes across Scotland.

Long-established family business

As the company has grown, so too has the number of family members involved. Today the business is managed on a day-to-day basis by Ian’s three sons, Kevin, Alan and Colin, who all serve as Directors.

Kevin and Colin are responsible for the general running of the company, as well as transport planning and recruitment, whilst Alan oversees all vehicle maintenance, including running the workshop and compliance.

Colin’s son Martyn is also part of the family firm, joining soon after completing his apprenticeship with MAN Truck & Bus. After initially serving in the workshop, he spent two years driving, and is now Transport Manager and CPC holder – and represents the third generation of the Craig family to work for the company.
