Alan Davie Transport Ltd started business in 1978 with one vehicle transporting reels of paper from Montrose docks to R.L. Fleming sacks in Dundee and since then have expanded to around 300 customers big and small, but whatever the size they pride themselves in offering the best service to all.
The company operate four articulated trucks on trunking operations with twenty on deliveries & sixteen on general haulage.
Alan Davie is very complementary of Montracon;
“Montracon manufacture very good and reliable trailers. We are in the process of taking delivery of our latest batch on ENXL rated curtainsiders at present. We also have a number of double-deck curtainsiders from Montracon which we trunk at night through the TPN network. These trailers give us excellent service”.
Montracon curtainsider models are offered with a full range of options designed to maximise operating flexibility and fleet efficiency. We feel our curtainsider trailer manufacturing is of the highest engineering quality.
We are really pleased to be able to continue supplying Alan Davie Transport with our Curtainsider Trailers and look forward to continuing our relation well into the future.
As part of our 40th Anniversary Celebrations Montracon ran a competition to find the oldest trailer still in service. The winner would receive a £500 parts voucher to spend at any Montracon parts depot. Placing adverts in the trade press, we were inundated with entries; supplying all kinds photographic evidence to back up their claims. Montracon’s production excellence is founded on solid engineering principles, with quality, reliability and longevity being the company’s underlying values, it was therefore not surprising there was such a high entry level.
We are please to announce John Mckeefry, Ireland as the winner. His beautifully refurbished 1979 tandem axle flat, finished in striking green and red colours took pride and place at our Doncaster Open Day in September, where many a customer made comment and complemented on how good the trailer looked. John is pictured with his winning voucher.

Orsam Trailers Ltd in Burton-upon-Trent, Derbyshire have recently taken delivery of 25 Montracon tri-axle box van trailers. The trailers were designed and built to Orsam’s exacting requirements and will maximise their operating efficiency and with the unhindered rear access should ease loading/unloading thus maximising their usage while minimizing whole life costs.
Steve Orchard, Director, made comment: I would just like to say a big thank you to all at Montracon, a great service given with all our new trailers. The trailers are as expected, good engineering with a great finish. With the customer service shown so far, hopefully this is not the end of orders for Orsam trailers.

Trailers are mounted on either a single axle, or on tandem or tri-axle bogies for operation at up to 44tonnes GTW.
In addition, Montracon offers a full range of aerodynamic options from the fully specified FST (fuel saving trailer) to the inclusion of specific, individual features offering reported fuel savings of up to 10% and more.
