About us

AC Transport are a professional transport solutions company that deliver a bespoke service to meet the needs of our customers. Based in Barnoldswick on the border between Lancashire and Yorkshire, we are ideally located to serve the whole of the UK and Europe.

Established by Arthur Carlos more than 30 years ago, we have built a reputation for delivering an efficient, prompt and caring service to our varied customer base.  In more recent years, under the steer of son, Robert Carlos, the business has grown.  In addition to our original core business servicing local bed and furniture manufacturers we can also now offer transport solutions to a wide range of businesses including exhibition stand builders, conference organisers, agricultural suppliers and utility companies.

Our customer’s expectations are high, and we acknowledge the invaluable skills and expertise gained in our early years of trading; helping us today in delivering an excellent service tailored to the individual needs of our customers.

With a can do attitude and a service that is second to none. Working with our customers and adopting a hands-on approach is what we do best, we always find a way.  Please contact us for more information and assistance.

We are very proud to still be a family run business.

Please contact us whatever your transportation needs are.



We operate our own fleet of trucks and pride ourselves in taking the worry out of managing your exhibition logistics. Your stand and equipment will be handled with care and delivered on time directly to the venue.  Our drivers are hands on and will assist with loading and unloading as required.  If you need additional labour for the build or pull out of your stand, or simply equipment storage, we can arrange for our vehicle and driver to stay on site.


Conferences & Events

AC Transport have been providing logistic services to the UK and European Conference and Events industry for many years, and as such, we have a wealth of industry experience that we pass on to our customers. We believe we have the right solution for your transport needs, getting your equipment to site safely and on time.


As a nation we are being called upon to acknowledge and deal with our waste or byproducts in a more environmentally efficient manner.  At AC transport we can work closely with companies dealing with these issues, satisfying all parties involved. Be it an odd load or a project, we look forward to working with those companies working towards ‘greener’ solutions.


Delivering beds to all areas of the UK is where AC Transport started, and as a result we have gained considerable experience providing delivery services to this sector of the furniture industry.  We now use this experience to provide the same high standard service to suppliers of all types of contract and home furniture.
