About M&H Carriers: Leading Scottish Distributors
What makes M&H Carriers stand out from the crowd is its dedication to the local communities it serves. With an eye firmly on the future, M&H Carriers empowers, invests and improves not only the operations of the business – but also the voices of local SMEs and the communities in which it works.
Since the beginning of 2021, managing director Fraser MacLean and his team have shown the nation that they mean business. Working tirelessly through unprecedented conditions, M&H Carriers has seen its team grow to nearly 300 people – supported by a fleet of over 200 vehicles including artic lorries, HGVs, vans and 10 fully electric vans. In fact, the firm was the first in the Highlands to commit to electrifying its last-mile delivery vehicles.
The company has also recently invested in a new hub on the outskirts of Glasgow, serving the Argyll mainland and islands – supported by two new satellite depots in Oban and Tarbert. Five further new satellite depots in the Highlands and Islands have increased delivery capabilities for Scotland’s most rural locations.
These new facilities bring M&H Carriers’ network to four hubs and 10 satellite depots – providing unrivalled coverage in north and central Scotland.
These incredible achievements follow over 30 years of innovation, strong work ethic and a shared vision of the future between managing director Fraser MacLean and founder Magnus Slater.
M&H Carriers began as a small car and trailer service in Aberdeen, when Magnus took a leap of faith and used his redundancy money to start the business in 1987. With wife Helen by his side (the ‘H’ in M&H!), the business grew quickly. Fraser stepped into the role of managing director in 2019, allowing Magnus to enjoy a well-earned retirement in Australia.
With over 20 years’ experience in the logistics industry, Fraser has revolutionised M&H Carriers’ services and built the company to the point it is at today – working with national multi-carrier operators and pallet distribution networks to ensure deliveries are completed successfully across the UK.
At the heart of everything they do, though, are those small business owners and individuals that M&H Carriers has committed to supporting.
