About Us

TEF Transport has being operating in Scarborough for some 45 years. The company downsized in 2000 however, in 2004 Andy and Linda Mclaughlin (Andy was a former transport manager of the company) invested in the company to become sole shareholders and Directors.

Since 2004 TEF Transport has changed dramatically. The transport fleet has increased from 3 tractor units and 3 trailers to 34 tractor units, 60 trailers and 12 rigid HGV vehicles.


In May 2008 TEF Transport moved from a small rented warehouse and yard to our brand new purpose built logistics depot on the new Scarborough business park. The 5 acre site has a 50,000 square foot warehouse together with quality office accommodation and plenty of parking. This has given numerous operational efficiencies and is a show piece for the company. This investment is proof to our existing and potential new customers that we are here to stay, serving the local manufacturing community.

During 2012 TEF Transport successfully achieved the Global BRC accreditation standard for storage and distribution. The Global Standard is designed to reflect best practice and facilitate a process of continuous improvement through well-designed risk-based safety management systems. The scope covered by the award ranges from the storage, distribution and cross-docking of ambient food products. The BRC accreditation needs to be renewed yearly and TEF have successfully renewed/maintained this accreditation every year since.

In addition to the multimillion £ investment made in 2008, TEF extended the warehouse and loading facilities in 2015 giving further operational efficiencies and increasing the warehouse capacity by a further 20,000 square foot of quality BRC accredited warehousing.

Furthermore, during 2015 TEF Transport purchased Millfield Haulage from York. Millfield Haulage were a quality family run transport company with 15 vehicles and 40,000 square foot of warehousing. Millfield Haulage has now been fully intergrated into the TEF family and although they keep their ‘Millfield’ name, they share the same striking livery on all of their vehicles.

We pride ourselves in giving our customers extremely high levels of service and reliability and offer our customers the full logistics package.

TEF Transport has a proactive approach to their customers needs and requirements and a ‘can do’ attitude which our customers have come to expect.
