A road haulage company has closed its Great Yarmouth depot site, ending a more than 100-year-old link to the town.

The Spandler site been closed by parent company Revis Transport, which is based in York and which apart from saying the depot had been closed would not comment on the closure.

In 2015 Revis Transport took over Spandler Bros, which at the time operated 15 Volvo lorries and 30 trailers

The business was bought from its parent company J and H Bunn, which has also been Spandler’s principal customer.

For more than 100 years, Spandler Bros, based in the South Denes area, had provided specialist haulage services to businesses in East Anglia and beyond and distributed nationwide for household-name companies.

Last November Spandler GY transport manager Mick Simmons had spoken of the need of the third river crossing, describing traffic problems linked to getting to the port as a ‘massive bottle neck’.
