Transport Services offer a comprehensive range of fleet management and vehicle & plant maintenance services.


Tayside Contracts’ Transport Services operates and manages a large and diverse range of vehicles and plant.

With four modern and well-equipped workshops strategically positioned across Tayside, we can efficiently service and maintain our fleet as well as, in Arbroath, that of Angus Council. Our services are also available to private clients, and we offer maintenance and repairs on cars, light and heavy goods vehicles, and plant. 

We operate a comprehensive Fleet Management system and GPS is installed across our fleet. These allow us to monitor all aspects of our fleet performance, costs and impact on the environment. We take every step from procurement, through their operational use and at end-of-life, to ensure our fleet is safe, efficient, eco-friendly, and provides the best value to the organisation. 

We conduct internal audits through our established processes to ensure our compliance with all Health & Safety, Operator License and other legal requirements. 

In line with our commitment to working towards Net Zero, we currently operate 28 electric vehicles and plan to increase that number in line with the Scottish Government’s targets. Whilst we are still reliant on diesel powered vehicles and plant, we continue to minimise our environmental impact through the following measures: 

  • Ensuring our fleet, that is not EV, is Euro 6 compliant. 
  • Implementing processes and monitors to ensure fuel efficiency. 
  • Ensuring high standards of fleet maintenance. 
  • Constantly monitoring vehicle and plant utilisation and removing them where they cannot be justified. 
  • Hiring vehicles and plant to cover peaks in operational demand rather than owning them.  
  • Using all management information available to us to measure and improve our performance in all areas.
