At the heart of Transline Europe Ltd is our Managing Director, Paul Toner, whose immersive journey through the haulage industry began at the tender age of 17. Starting his career in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, he drove a 3.5-tonner, delivering to cloth mills in Lancashire. From these humble beginnings, Paul's commitment to the industry saw him move on to driving 7.5-tonners and achieving his class one license on his first attempt at age 21.
Paul's early career saw him working with several renowned haulage companies, driving flatbeds for Jo Dean Transports in Halifax and traversing the UK with George Walker Transport in Leeds, using curtain siders. It was during these extensive UK routes that he drove into Scotland, a journey that was significant not just for his career but his personal life as well - where he met his future wife.
After moving to Scotland 28 years ago, Paul continued his haulage career, working with John Miller Transport before they were acquired by Securicor. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to become self-employed in 1996. Paul's hands-on experience and deep understanding of the industry eventually culminated in a partnership offer with Baltic Transport Group to spearhead their UK operations.
Paul's diverse experience, spanning from driver to director, places him in a unique position to empathize with both the customers and drivers' challenges. Clients of Transline Europe Ltd stand to benefit significantly from this real-world experience. The firsthand insight enables us to anticipate and effectively address logistical challenges, providing solutions that are rooted in practical experience and enhanced by innovative thinking.
Choosing Transline Europe Ltd means you're choosing a haulage partner led by someone who understands the intricacies of the industry from the ground up. Paul's journey, from behind the wheel to the helm of operations, shapes our company's ethos and commitment to delivering excellent service to our clients.
