ABOUT EFS LOGISTICS LTD

The company was first launched by Mark Jones (Managing Director) in 1996 as a courier franchise with Mercury Express UK. Described by Mark as a ‘one man with van’ set-up, he believes he bought into a franchise that, unfortunately, failed at the first hurdle.

Although this experience wasn’t the most successful, it held Mark in good stead as he gradually began to develop and grow the business. From a small fleet of vans that carried out simple courier services, to the purchase of a 7.5 tonne truck in 1998, the company steadily began to grow in stature. However, Mr Jones soon realised that courier work was too unpredictable.

This created a desire for greater business security and drove the inevitable shift towards more express haulage and pallet distribution; rather than next day and single item deliveries. This progression started to happen at the turn of the millennium as our first 18 tonne truck was purchased in the year 2000.

Working with overnight pallet deliveries proved a turning point for EFS, as it made freight the majority of our work, rather than the courier work. In 2006, Mark Jones and EFS joined UK Pallets and today the courier work represents just 5% of our business.

Company Expansion

In order to maintain growth and progression, in 2010 EFS acquired the Cheshire based business 747 Express Freight. This added an additional 10 vehicles to our ever-growing fleet and an ability to service customers based in the Cheshire area.

A year later, and we were also able to acquire a Lancashire based business dealing with refrigerated transport services. This added a new and exciting development to our company and an avenue we had not previously explored. We are now able to offer time sensitive and temperature controlled deliveries via an expansive fleet of refrigerated vehicles.

Time is of the essence with all shipments, our excellent team thrive in the pressure that comes from making sure everything runs in a well-constructed manner. We process all administration work, handle all documentation and oversee every detail at each stage.

At EFS we work with the world’s most respected international carriers and are able to depend on accurate sailing schedules from most major ports across the globe. We are able to offer competitive prices and will ensure your shipment arrives on time and in perfect condition.

With our own fleet of 170 vehicles and a strong network of approved partners, this means that we are able to offer timely deliveries to any address in any European country. Size is not important, we regularly move from small cartons to full trailers which are handled with identical precision.
