Fleet

We're Hauling construction forward!

Our diverse fleet is the largest of it's type in Kent, and we are unique in offering construction logistics using tippers, grab lorries, artic bulkers, artic flat-beds, and wagon and drags

  • Our fleet of 8 wheel tippers and grabs operate from our depots at Laddingford and Sheerness, but 4 vehicles have fully specified sleeper cabs, giving the tipper fleet additional coverage across the south east.
  • Our artic fleet operates from Laddingford, Sheerness, and Ford, and includes bulk aggregate and flat bed trailers, and in addition to all types of primary and recycled aggregates, we haul such diverse items such as grain, glass cullet, metal frag, steelwork, shoring equipment, bagged aggregates, bricks, blocks, and all manner of paving.
  • Our wagon and drag fleet operates from Laddingford, Sheerness, Ford, and Pevensey, and is easily the most well travelled, moving building materials daily for major brick, block, tile, and paving manufacturers throughout England

Our commitment to other road users

Our vehicles meet the very latest standards required by the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) and Construction Logistics Standard (CLOCS).

All vehicles have satellite tracking, and most have full vehicle operational data collection from on board management systems.  We control the fleet from our Laddingford office from where we can play back vehicle movements and produce printed reports from satellite tracking.  All vehcles have onboard cameras, and as we upgrade the equipment, we're adding the ability to capture video footage from multiple angles.  A number of vehicles have live in cab cameras, where video footage is available immediately after any incident

Ardula Fleet

We operate 15 8-Wheel tippers

Our tipper fleet is widely recognised across the south east, the distinctive red and blue livery a common site in Kent, Sussex, and South London

We operate 4 8-wheel Grab Vehicles

Our grab vehicles are active daily on a wide range of duties, often for small customers where site access for normal tippers is unsuitable. Our drivers will collect waste, deliver aggregates, and supply topsoil, exactly where and when the customer wants

Mantransco Fleet

Our 'Wagon and Drags'

Mantransco became a part of the Ardula Group in 2016, and is now a fully integrated part of the business. It not only fits within the existing structure but now also shares customers of the tipper and artic fleets

Our most maneuverable vehicles

Rigid vehicles with drawbar trailers and crane mounts are very versatile when it comes to site access. As sites progress and space becomes confined, our vehicles can deliver and offload into the tightest of corners

PTC Fleet

Artic Bulkers

Our artics haul their 28t payload from major aggregate and recycling facilities to receiving sites across the south east, often supporting the tipper fleet with direct deliveries to Ardula customer sites

Artic Flat Bed Trailers

We're able to move all manner of construction materials and plant. From blocks and bricks, to bagged sand or shoring equipment, we can move it swiftly, safely, and securely
