News

Due to ongoing success in our business we have recently purchased 12 new Goldstar Heathrow liveried Mercedes-Benz Actros tractor units, each employing state of the art technology.

The new Mercedes 2545LS tractor units are all fitted with new 'still air' spoilers offering much better aerodynamics. They also have power reduction steering – which removes power to the steering while the hand brake is on – reducing fuel consumption and advanced braking systems that inform the driver when traveling too close to the vehicle in front. The new Mercedes-Benz tractor units have Euro VI engines providing increased fuel efficiency and substantial reductions in emissions

These new vehicles are state of the art technology, which together with our new Microlise Fleet Performance System enables us to fulfil our  safety and environmental obligations, both of which we take seriously. (See our Microlise Fleet Performance System story below for more information)

Also see our Fleet expansion and refreshment programme story below for more information about our fleet update programme completed in 2015.

Goldstar Heathrow has made it into the top 100 growth companies in the Thames Valley this year, coming in at number 26 in the Thames Valley SME 100 Growth Index with a healthy 20% annual growth.

FORS is a national accreditation scheme encompassing all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, economical operations and vehicle emissions. We continue to meet all the requirements for FORS BRONZE in 2016.

We become an associate member of BIFA (British International Freight Association) in 2015, demonstrating our commitment to the pursuit of excellence and quality in the transport and logistics sector.

This exciting programme has both expanded and brought our fleet up to date, with new Mercedes-Benz Actros tractor units, trailers, Mercedes-Benz Actros 18T and Atego 7.5T trucks and Sprinter vans.

We opened our office at Manchester Airport in 2015 and relocated to new offices at the airport in 2017. Although primarily set up to service a particular contract the office has already been approached by many of our other clients who have a presence in Manchester.

Due to growth in our business we have been busy recruiting drivers and other key new members of staff. We are also continuing with our investment in developing our valuable team of experienced people.

We are now in our fourth year operating successfully from our Colnbrook HQ at Heathrow. Consolidating our business with the move to our Colnbrook HQ in 2013 has paid big dividends and enabled the company to achieve unprecedented growth.
