The distinctive Eddie Stobart brand makes the company one of the most recognizable
haulage firms in the world. Every single day, Eddie Stobart truck drivers cover the
equivalent of the distance to the moon and back three times over.
The firm employs more than 5,000 people, who work around the clock to make a delivery
every 4.6 seconds, as well as running two ports, two airports and several freight trains.
This four DVD collection features the complete first Channel 5 series of Eddie Stobart
Trucks and Trailers in which the international transport company provided exclusive
access to its trucks and the people that keep them trucking.
DISC 1: Episode :1
Mo Goulding has been a Stobart trucker for 34 years, and he is a company man through and through. He takes great
pride in his reputation for getting deliveries made in time, but his planners have failed to take into account a blockage
on the M25 that forces him onto London’s notorious North Circular. It looks as if Mo is about to commit the cardinal sin
of trucking - failing to deliver his load on time.
A female driver takes on a delicate load of cream cakes, which she has to deliver in perfect condition to one of
Stobart’s biggest customers. But after contending with endless roundabouts it is touch and go whether her load will
make it in one piece.
Disc 2: Episode 3:
An important delivery of spare parts to the World Rally Championships in Finland hits the skids, and a chilled driver
faces her greatest fear. Elsewhere, a trucker watches in amazement as his lorry is suspended in the air.
The drivers on the continent do their utmost to avoid ending up with a cargo of illegal stowaways. The truckers get a
glimpse of glamour when they deliver a consignment of polo ponies, and another Eddie Stobart driver negotiates a
particularly tricky farmyard track.
DISC 3: Episode 5:
This week, an enthusiastic trucker takes on the challenge of racing the Eddie Stobart train from Rugby to Glasgow. A
young female driver tries out the hardest manoeuvre in the trucking handbook under the watchful eye of a veteran
Stobart trucker. And a night shift worker gets a raw deal at London’s Smithfield meat market.
A group of lucky drivers take the Formula 1 cars over to Belgium. They are kept waiting for the F1 cars because they
need to be in peak condition. When they are given excess luggage in the form of Michael Shumacher’s electric bike –
one young newbie can’t resist taking it for a spin. A veteran driver acts as guinea pig testing out a brand new trailer but gets
stuck in V-Festival traffic. And Stobart put on a show at Truckfest – the highlight of the trucking calendar.
DISC 4: The Christmas Special
The observational documentary about the iconic trucking company Eddie Stobart is back for a one off special –
delivering Christmas. It’s their busiest time of year – and the weather isn’t on their side. As snow blizzards hit the UK
– the trucks need to keep rolling to get Christmas trees to the garden centres, turkeys to the tables and tonnes of toys
and presents under the trees.
