How we Became the UK's Number One Container Haulage Company

Our goal is to ensure that we deliver your container on time every time. After all, both our reputations depend on it.

If it’s not Goldstar it’s not good enough.

1998

A Star is Born

From humble beginnings Goldstar was formed by a group of industry stalwarts with a small office team, a fleet of 4 Scania's and some seriously ambitious plans to shake up the Container Transport industry in the UK.

Our centenary year in business saw us achieve a turnover of more than 50 million, and we increase our driving force substantially ready to take on the next 10 years!

15 Years a Charm

Now firmly at the forefront of the UK container haulage industry we branched out into more locations nationwide with out number of Depots and Container Parks totalling at 9.

Breaking records and setting standards

Annual turnover hits in excess of £110 million handling over 1400 movements per day. Our sights are set on becoming the UK's premier container haulage business.

2020

When the Whole World Stopped, Goldstar Forged on

An unprecedented year which saw exceptional demand for our services due to the global pandemic. Our country came together to support transport industry keyworkers working under extraordinary pressures to keep our country safe.
We joined industry heavyweights Turners, bringing together two East Anglian-based haulage businesses with a similar heritage.

We announced our busiest year yet. Another pay rise for our drivers. We re-launched our successful Goldstar Driving Academy to support the industry in training more LGV drivers. We bought new Mercedes Actros training vehicles and worked to grow more Goldstar talent for the future.
