Richard Read Transport was started in 1946 by Richard Read Senior with one vehicle and a shovel. By the 1960's there were over 80 'Richard Read' vehicles on the road. Today they operate a range of vehicles - tippers, tautliners, low loaders and flats. His first lorry cost him £350.00 and in the first month of operation, he handled 1,350 tons of stone to help build the Gloucester Ring Road. Extra contracts soon followed and additional lorries were bought and shortly afterwards Richard bought his first new vehicle, a Bedford four-wheeler, registration number KFH 8.
In 1959 they purchased their first ERF, registration TDG 689 and it was the first Articulated Tractor Unit in the fleet.
