Tennant Transport of Forth started in the early 1900s when founder Peter Tennant set up business transporting farm produce and coal by horse and cart from his home in Forth.
The company is now run by fourth generation John Tennant and Graham Sorbie from both Forth and Lockerbie with a mixed fleet of over 48 vehicles, which operate throughout the UK.
Here we see one of their Atkinson 8-wheel flatbed lorries registered WRB 501 resplendent in dark blue with pale blue and brown masking, on a bright red chassis.
Note the detailed white line-out to the cab doors, surrounding the Tennant company crest and Forth 211 telephone number. The characteristic radiator grille masked in red features the Atkinson badge embedded into the centre. The flatbed trailer features realistic ‘planking’ all ready for the Tennant load of the day.
