Tait Transport – Transport, Logistics & Storage Facility – Loading Canopy


Tait Transport, specialists in transportation, logistics, and storage, required a loading canopy to protect their staff and inventory from Scotland’s ever-changing weather conditions. Located in Bellshill, within the central belt of Scotland, Tait Transport operates from a new 20,000 sq ft warehouse to better serve their expanding customer base and expansion in the sector.


To address their weather-related obstacles, Tait Transport collaborated with Spaciotempo to design and install a robust 25m x 20m x 5m loading canopy extension. Guaranteeing a secure environment that shields their staff, inventory, and fleet from the elements.

“Spaciotempo delivered our canopy in rapid time, and it provided all the structural integrity we were promised to protect our delivery fleet, our team and most importantly, our valued customer freight from the unpredictable Scottish weather.”

In safe hands

Under the guidance of Natalie Belfour, area sales manager for Scotland and the Northeast, Tait Transport were able to navigate and understand the intricacies of the project effortlessly. Granting Tait Transport the peace of mind to focus on their primary objective of delivering customer freight without interruptions.

Whilst working on the project Natalie had the following words to say “We deal with many large and even global enterprises, but there is something very special about handing over our building solutions to local, family run businesses like this one, located in the central belt of Scotland.”

Finance option

At Spaciotempo, we recognise that all end-use requirements are different and in pursuit of securing approval for the canopy construction, Tait Transport required a bespoke finance package that offered flexibility and affordability. Opting for one of Spaciotempo’s many buying options, financing was the top choice as it allowed Tait Transport to spread the cost over a 5-year period.

“As an independent Scottish business, we were able to work with Spaciotempo to agree a finance option that offered the flexibility and affordability that we needed to fund our canopy. They listened, offered advice and you could tell they genuinely cared about providing not only a building, but a level of service that meant we could achieve our goals.”
