At the heart of the Swain Group, the UK’s leading edge transport, warehousing and distribution business, is the tradition of family ownership.

Since its foundation in 1918, five generations of Swains have built a company, with a proven track record, which constantly seeks to provide the best possible transport service.

Expansion has come organically, from our reputation and client recommendations and through acquisition; proof of a dynamic and forward looking culture. We have the clear ambition to be successful for another hundred years.

Our comprehensive management training programmes encourage staff to build careers within the Swain Group. This, combined with implementing the most up-to date technology, ensures we continue to maintain and enhance customer service.

The Swain Group has been selected for many of the industry's most challenging tasks such as the Heathrow's Terminal 5 in 2002 2003,  the Wembley Stadium project in 2005 2006 , London 2012, UK and world wide distribution for a premium motive and reserve power battery supplier, and the Lee Tunnel Project.
