Established in 1924, E Park & Sons Ltd began originally as an agriculture company but has diversified into transportation. Whilst the agriculture side of the business specialises in potatoes and has continued to grow, so has the transportation segment. Driven by the very demanding nature of the UK food industry, E Park & Sons Ltd have been able to translate their skills into the transportation sector to keep up with the transportation demands of UK food retailers. Their mission is to deliver excellence and seek continuous improvement, which they have by getting the right potatoes, to the right place at the right time and this has been the key to their success along with their passion for potatoes.
The Haulage Exchange has helped E Park & Sons Ltd to run their day to day operations more efficiently, here’s how;

We wanted to cover the empty running of our vehicles.
We had some trouble finding the right customers and getting backloads to cover the empty running of our vehicles.
Our operations weren’t very efficient, our vehicles often ran and returned empty and it got to a stage where it just wasn’t paying.
With the help of the Haulage Exchange, we have now solved empty running and backloads issue, our vehicles no longer run empty like they did previously.
The rates of the exchange are better than other services which is helpful for us, we get a lot of work posted in our direction and out of those we select the ones which are suitable for us. We have also built up relationships with companies from the Exchange which is also a big help to us.
Yes absolutely, as matter of fact, I have already recommended a colleague who has joined the Exchange.
Yes, that’s correct, if a see a job in the direction I’m heading towards, I’ll ring up and try to get it.
We have kept the same fleet size, however our vehicles no longer run empty like they did before and I find that we now operate more efficiently.
