NORTH Sea oil is providing increasing business for Scottish hauliers. One haulier, A Noble and Sons, Aberdeen, and its associated company Elgin Transport and Storage, has already replaced its fleet in anticipation of additional traffic to come. They now claim to own and operate the largest Peet of Volvo units in the North.
With a staff of 70 and a fleet of 40 vehicles, Noble has been engaged in the transport of oil pipes from Hull to Nigg and the carriage of prefabricated materials from Elgin to various oil centres.
The company's expansion has been startling. Beginning with coal, it went on to whisky and then took advantage of the discovery of North Sea oil to expand further.
The company now carries whisky from Speyside, bulk malt and coal for use in the distilleries, food products from the Fochabers factory of W. A. Baxter and Sons Ltd, as well as the traffic for the oil indostry.
