As part of the Wainwright Group we have a specialist division – British Transit Ltd – which is solely dedicated to the shipping of motor vehicles around the world.

British Transit Limited was established in 1936 and over the years has specialised in the transportation of motor vehicles. Since 1978 it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Wainwright Bros & Co Ltd.
