Unsworth Global Logistics celebrates 40 years

Aug 26, 2014

Unsworth Global Logistics, one of the first logistics companies to create an online Integrated freight quotation and booking system for customers, is celebrating 40 years of innovation and dedication to customer service.

Owned and run by Chairman Geoff Hogg and his family, Unsworth Global Logistics is one of the few independent global freight management companies to reach its 40th anniversary, as most other contemporaries have been either acquired by larger rivals or closed down.

“I believe our commitment to staff training and focus on customer service have been the key drivers to 40 years of business success,” says Mr Hogg. “We have listened to our customers and provided them with the services and tools – such as cargocost.com – which makes importing or exporting their products a much easier process.”

Founded in 1974, Unsworth Global Logistics has expanded to become one of the UK’s leading independent freight consolidators and logistics providers, with offices in London, Felixstowe and Singapore as well as long established partners in every corner of the world.

“Over the years we have responded to the many changes in our customers’ needs and so we have grown steadily year on year,” Mr Hogg explained.

Our reliability and long standing reputation has allowed us to build special relationships with carriers, clients, agents and partners both at home and overseas. As a result, our clients have benefitted from the more personalised services we are able to offer as we strive to meet ever-changing needs in the world of logistics.”

The company’s 40th anniversary celebrations included a garden party for employees and their families.
