Lloyds of Ludlow Ltd International Transport, Shropshire - Scania 111, Tandem Axle Tilt Trailer - Hauliers of Renown - Limited Edition
Norman Lloyd started Lloyds of Ludlow on May 12th, 1937. Norman played an active role in the business until his death in 2007. His son Tony joined the company in 1955. Most of the work was agricultural which included milk and livestock. After de-nationalisation the company started to carry more general haulage, throughout the country. During this time a number of different sorts of vehicles were purchased including a 1946 Maudslay Mogul II, Seddons and Bedfords.
By 1970 it was realised that there was international work available. The late 1960s and early 1970s saw the first purchases of Volvos and Scanias. These were used on regular trips to countries across Europe. During this time and into the 1980s the company continued to expand.
PNT 968R was the first Scania 111 purchased by the company. In its heyday the company was running over sixty vehicles. Unfortunately Tony passed away in 2011, but the company continues to be run by his surviving family.
