Transport has been in Richard's blood since before he was even born.
His grandparents and father were all lorry drivers and had transport companies
He has worked with every type of lorry there is. He also knows the mechanics of the lorries.
Richard has driven all over the UK and internationally including Africa and even Kosovo during the third Balkan war! Which was an experience.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Richard has owned his own haulage company since 1982 which has been very successful. As a result in 2014 he was headhunted to join the pallet-Track network with his right-hand man Michael Hollands as a shareholder.
Pallet-Track are one of the fastest growing pallet distribution networks. Part of their success is due their continued investment in cutting-edge technology and both their online tracking system and proof of delivery solution.
Since then E&R Freight have grown considerably and moved to larger premise's do accommodate increasing demand.
We have also formed a strong working relationship with a large company in France. This is proving very successful and has help us gain work across Europe and internationally.
The business has a very much family run feel to it, with several of Richard's family and friends working for the company.
This works incredibly well as all staff are singing from the same sheet and collectively they have many years of experience in the industry, which means we are prepared for every eventually, so your freight is in the best possible hands.
