Brain Haulage Ltd
Home > Brain Haulage Ltd
Peter Sumpter
Brain Haulage was formed by Charles
Edward Brain in 1950 and played a major
role in the container revolution in the
UK, completely changing the way goods
were transported over the world. Peter
Sumpter was a driver with Brain Haulage
until it closed in 1992 and is an
unofficial archivist of the brand,
having taken hundreds of photographs and
chronicling his adventures in a diary
for over 20 years.

Brain Haulage Ltd tells the history of
Brain and the container revolution as
well as the story of Charles Brain; from
his early years working for the L.M.S.
Railway at Camden Town, to his time in
the R.A.F. during the second world war,
to eventually starting his own haulage
company. The rest of the story is from
Peterís own diary and the many ex-
drivers and Brains staff he worked with
over the years.

Including over 300 previously
unpublished photographs Brain Haulage
Ltd is a unique book, ideal for anyone
interested in containers and their
revolution, as well as road transport
and haulage trade enthusiasts.
