Charterlink was founded by our CEO Stephen Carr in 2000 and began life primarily as an express parcel carrier providing overnight full load, hub to hub, time sensitive deliveries for the parcel industry. Stephen’s strong knowledge of the European market led to Charterlink’s growth by providing driver accompanied European trailers to importers and exporters throughout Europe.
The company continued this strong growth and was able to expand into UK domestic haulage market and offer customs clearances where staff were brought in with a good knowledge of these sectors. Moving forward Charterlink decided to expand into warehousing to meet a growing customer need, taking advantage of the company’s close proximity to the Port of Felixstowe and recognizing the need to offer a customer focused and reliable service in this sector. A warehouse was acquired which enabled ERTS, bond and general storage creating a new department to complement the existing Charterlink portfolio.
Things have gone from strength to strength and Charterlink aim to provide a high-quality service through a reliable, friendly and honest approach as advocated by our CEO Stephen Carr from the very beginning.
