Area of operation
The City of London originally developed around the transport links of the River Thames and connected waterways. Today these waterways provide uncongested routes into and within the busy City allowing for sustainable transportation of bulk cargo. For example in 2008 we saved 6 million lorry miles by utilising waterborne transportation. For more information please select this link: Sustainable Transportation in London and the South East>>
Founded in 1983 Alan C Bennett’s & Sons developed through towing and attendance contracts in the dredging and marine civil engineering sectors. Following a series of aggregate and spoil disposal projects, including The Limehouse Link and the Jubilee Line Underground Railway Extension, a link was made with Foster Yeoman Limited, now part of Aggregate Industries.
After a highly successful spell as the lighterage contractor for Yeoman Aggregates, we became part of the group in 2002. Foster Yeoman became a member of Aggregate Industries in 2006 and we completed the group customer package of sustainable transport options.
In 2009 we merged with Tidy Thames Refuse Services and gained a new Managing Director, Mr Chris Livett – Waterman to H.M. The Queen. The merger brings a broader client base and additional specialist barges and vessels. We now cater for the domestic, leisure, construction, waste and commercial sectors. Information on our Services
