Edwards Transport is a family owned and operated business which can trace its roots back to the 1930’s. The beginnings were very much in haulage and this remains central to the business today, although in a much-developed format with varied specialist services such as refrigerated distribution, bulk liquid milk and specialist MOL vehicles forming part of the fleet.
The business is BRC accredited and now includes extensive temperature-controlled warehousing and a range of added value services aimed at the food industry. The growth of the business has been attributed to a can-do attitude and a willingness to be flexible and provide new and innovative solutions to our customers. As a result, we have now opened a second site in Eccleshall which specialises in cold storage storing up to 16,000 pallets over 5 rooms.
