Over the course of the last 60 years, John Raymond Transport’s distinctive red livery has become a familiar sight on the roads of the UK and Europe. In this time, the company has expanded from being a regional haulier, into a leading UK operator. In many ways, John Raymond Transport has mirrored the wider UK economy with our early client base being dominated by heavy manufacturing, especially the steelworks of South Wales.
The company has built on this heritage and wealth of experience to go on and service a wide range of FMCG customers, including leading retailers, food and drink manufacturers; paper and building material specialists.
All Departments - Traffic Office, Warehouse, and Maintenance Facilities are manned 24 x 7 x 364, this enables all customer transport / distribution requirements to be processed with maximum efficiency via our Roadrunner Computer System, which allows us to ensure customers goods are delivered on time every time. The Nolan Group acquired John Raymond Transport Limited in September 2016; the shared resource and synergies within the group adds strength and resilience which will enhance the customer service experience.
