Jack Richards & Son is a national road transport service with a well-earned reputation for reliability. For over 60 years we have been successfully caring for our customers and their road transport needs, working from strategically located depots across the country. Privately owned and independently run, we operate road haulage services around the UK, palletised-load distribution across Europe and the UK as well as localised warehousing and storage.
Our contract haulage customers range from the largest multi-nationals to medium-sized enterprises. While our Palletways service users need anything from a single ¼ pallet movement within the UK, right through to high volumes of daily, full pallet shipments to destinations across Europe. Though diverse, these customers are united by one thing - the shared expectation of a professional and competitive transport service. This is what we deliver.
Today, our years of experience are enhanced by the latest vehicle and office-based technologies, in-house maintenance and VOSA test facilities. All supporting one of the most modern and environmentally focused fleets of curtainside vehicles on UK roads. The result is a dedicated approach that brings the highest transport standards to customers both large and small.
From long-standing contracts, involving the movement of hundreds of thousands of tons of high value loads, to single and multiple pallet movements and warehousing too, Jack Richards & Son has been leading the field in transport services for over 60 years.
Our business approach is a very personal one, with both Jack Richards and his son, Anthony, involved daily in the business at a senior level. They are supported by a team of experienced executives, managers, drivers and administrators who all know that it is respect for the well-proven Jack Richards standards that has kept our customers coming back for more.
Our People and Careers
The best fleet and most modern IT systems in the world are valueless without the right people. At Jack Richards & Son, people are at the very forefront of what we do and how we behave as a business. It is an ethos which has helped develop a team in which some members have been with the company for over 40 years, and in which father/son pairings go further than just Jack and Anthony Richards.
We're a family business, so our senior people take a close interest in the development of all company staff. Regular staff meetings and an ‘open door’ policy allows everyone to contribute to the success of both the business and their own career development. For this reason it is not uncommon to have people with us for many, many years, so new jobs don’t always come up as often as people who may want to join us would like.... however......Opportunities come up as the company grows; so, even if there isn’t a job right now that suits you, it is always worthwhile letting us have your CV for future reference. We are always keen to hear from anyone who feels they have something to offer - not just potential drivers but also administrators, technicians, traffic controllers, warehouse staff and more.
Just email it through to us, at our secure and confidential ‘Careers’ address - firstname.lastname@example.org, together with a note about the sort of work you are looking for, and we’ll keep you in mind for the future.
