For the team at Kings Heavy Haulage, no job is ever too big as the 25 strong team cart awkward, colossal and abnormal loads up and down the country. Faced with the challenge of tight deadlines and firm restrictions the brand new series, Supertruckers allows us to sit cabin-side as all the drama of British haulage unfurls.
The show follows Bristol-based, family run business, Kings Heavy Haulage - The family consists of Steve King, Managing Director who runs this thriving business, along with his wife Marie who takes care of the companies accounts, Steve's sister Sarah who looks after quality and marketing, and Sarah's partner Jerry who heads the workshop team. Steve's son Harry and Sarah's son Ricky help out with difficult loads in their spare time.
And of course we can't forget about a host of truckers which makes for a massive extended family!
These Supertruckers test themselves both physically and mentally in their quest to deliver difficult loads unharmed and on time for top clients, including the Military of Defence. With tanks, cranes, ramps, airbrakes and engines the boys know their trucks from grill to exhaust and can handle anything that their monstrous machines throw at them.
The series is brought to life with a host of lively characters with their variety of roles in the business. With only a small window of delivery time and a lot of weight to carry the drama of trucker life is brought in to being by the larger-than-life characters in their most comfortable setting, the cab of a truck.
In each of the episodes the team are confronted with challenges of logistics and logic as they negotiate weird and wonderful objects around the familiar settings of the motorways of Britain.
Supertruckers returns to Quest on Friday 8th January at 9pm . #Supertruckers
