Being so central within the country, Northamptonshire benefits from a unique location which places it at the heart of the road and rail network.

With the M1, A1, M6, A14 and M40 all within easy reach it’s no surprise that the Northamptonshire area is awash with logistics businesses whether in Northampton, Daventry, Rugby, Corby, DIRFT near Rugby or Magna Park just up the road at Lutterworth.

Factor in the proximity of the main railway lines and access to important freight terminals such as Felixstowe and Harwich and the reason for the proliferation of logistics based industries is understandable.

From warehousing, haulage, postal services, multi-drop and courier services to associated businesses such as those supplying racking and storage or even tractor/trailer services, there are a multitude of businesses operating in the sector, many of which we serve.

There are many challenges for the logistics sector including bureaucracy, margin erosion and the pressures placed on operators by ‘just in time’ deliveries .
