The history of Matthews International goes back to 1971, when Trevor Matthews bought his first truck for transporting RoRo trailers for Norfolk Line operating between Scheveningen and Great Yarmouth. When Trevor's brother Russell joined the business 10 years later, now operating 10 trucks, the business began to be more complex and competitive, with haulage services developing into our own fleet of temperature controlled vehicles operating between the UK and mainland Europe.
The first temperature controlled services began to develop with the export of herring from the Great Yarmouth smoke houses to Greece and Italy, returning to the UK with fruit from Italy.
Matthews International began to develop our UK business with leading food manufacturers and building our European network, also extending its operation into Eastern Europe.
The company has always been closely in tune with developments in the market and we understand the importance of continually searching for innovative solutions for our customers if we are to remain competitive within the market place.
There are 130 drivers working every day offering Matthews International customers a punctual, safe and fast service. The importance of their training and their safety form an important part of the philosophy of Matthews International. The safety of the company's employees and the goods we carry is guaranteed by regular vehicle checks, all servicing and maintenance being carried out in house by Matthews International's own team of engineers. Load Integrity and driver safety are further protected by an investment into a sophisticated security system, minimising the risk of theft. In spite of our status as an International company, Matthews International has kept faith over the years with the values of a family firm; and we understand that fostering a real team spirit among our employees is of paramount importance.
