Russell is a leading transport and logistics provider committed to delivering high value solutions across the UK and Europe.

The company was brought to life in 1969 by our present Chairman, John Russell.

Over 45 years on, with 250 vehicles, 14 depots and 6 rail terminals, Russell Logistics has established itself as a market leader, servicing some of Europe’s largest organisations and the world’s strongest brands. It is through Russell's highly skilled and motivated workforce, attention to detail, and excellent customer service that the company has grown to where it is today, and this is the method in which Russell continues to grow.
