We have a vast experience in road haulage & warehousing since 1920 and have over 130 employees. Above all we have an excellent customer services record and the ability to respond quickly to customer needs.
Long and Sons (Haulage) Ltd is a true family business formed in the 1920's by Joe Long, the grandfather of our present directors. The company remains family controlled and is now in its fourth generation.
Our company aim is to provide a quality road haulage, storage and distribution service to all parts of the UK.
The main depot and head office is based at an 8 acre site in Leeds, ideally situated within close proximity to the new A1-M1 link road, providing easy access to all major roadways, towns and ports. April 2000 saw the opening of an additional depot in Hull - operating through direct link to the Leeds depot with all drivers and vehicles fully integrated into the working practices of the company.
Our fleet of 90 rigid and articulated vehicles, mainly comprising of DAF XF 105 series 44 tonne units, is maintained to a high standard and we have our own purpose built workshop.
The Company is fast growing and in general regarded as one of the areas leading hauliers with ample scope for future development. Since 1998 we have been members of the Pall-Ex overnight pallet system, offering next day or economy distribution of pallets via the Pall-Ex Hub in Leicester. Members all have to operate to a Code of Practice to ensure that a Quality service is provided.
Throughout our history we have closely monitored the rise and fall of the industries we serve and carefully adapted our operation to suit the needs of our customers.
As a company with 80 plus years experience we have an excellent foundation to build on. We are a company who understands the need for continuous improvement in a fast changing business environment:
