Hinds Transport History

Hinds Transport History

Hinds Transport Services was founded by Harold Arthur Hinds in 1957 with a 1947 Austin truck he bought and operated from his home in Hindsbury Road, St Michael. Barbados. At that time the truck hauled sugar cane and other dry goods from the port to different parts in Barbados.

The company subsequently added other trucks. As time progressed he moved the operation to another house. In 1962, as the operation expanded he relocated to a three quarter acre site in Christ Church. The company grew larger and got into different operations and again out grew that location. In 1987 we moved to a new four and a half-acre complex at Kendal Hill Christ Church, to accommodate our various operations.

In April of 1998, Hinds Transport Services Ltd. was awarded the prestigious International Transport Award for excellence in transportation, at their annual conference held in Madrid, Spain.

Lighthouse Restoration

Lighthouse Restoration

East Point Lighthouse, also known as “Ragged Point” Lighthouse, is one of Barbados’ four lighthouses. It is the third-oldest, having been constructed in 1875. A notable landmark for both locals and visitors to the island, the coral stone lighthouse sits at 97 feet high (29.5 metres) on top of a cliff at the most easterly point in Barbados overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Barbados Port Inc. (BPI) has proudly announced its involvement in the restoration of the historic East Point Lighthouse in St. Philip. The restoration project, to be performed by Hinds Transport Services Ltd. and overseen by the BPI, commenced last month marked by an official ceremony and the initial removal of tree branches which have penetrated the building over time.
