Terberg DTS (UK) celebrates 20 years

On january 20th 2000 Distribution Tractor Services (DTS) joined the Terberg Group, following two successful years of development and growth, under the ownership of Duncan Stewart and Alisdair Couper. The company became Terberg DTS with Alisdair as managing director and Duncan moving on to pastures new.

The first unit ever sold by Distribution Tractor Services was an orange YT180 LPG tractor destined for Birmingham. This unit, having passed through numerous hands, has now returned to the ownership of Terberg DTS as a mark of where it all began.

Terberg DTS currently operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, offering customers a rapid service. Working hard, we have managed to achieve an average response time of less than 6 hours throughout the UK. We are committed to our customers and therefore feel it is important that they know they have our full support at all times, at any location. It is a source of pride that our vehicles operate within all of the major supermarkets, ports and parcel delivery companies across the country. This is the result of the hard work and dedication of our past and present colleagues. Our rental business shows ongoing growth across various sectors with assets supplied and supported globally.

"Vehicles delivered by Terberg DTS are now involved in the supply of over 84% of all consumer goods delivered throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland."

In 2006 Terberg DTS evolved further with the expansion into the supply of aviation equipment for both civilian applications and the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD). As a result of this decision the MOD now account for almost 23% of our business activities and this continues to grow. 2014 saw the introduction of Fire and Rescue products with a further partnership developed with Oshkosh in the USA. We now have a designated Fire and Rescue centre in Gloucester to manage this area of the business.

Our ethos is to innovate, evolve and develop, which sees Terberg DTS continuing to have great success winning major contracts with key accounts. We have the most experienced, knowledgeable and dedicated employees and we are proud of the hard work of all of our teams across the last 20 years and look forward to the next 20!
