News

With discrete contracts and long-standing customers, news from Jack Richards & Son can seem a little slow by comparison with some of the ‘noisier’ companies in our industry. Traditionally, we don’t like to shout about our own achievements, preferring to keep our successes between ourselves and the customers who inspire us to achieve them. However, recent points of note are shown below for the sake of general information:

Harlequin Logistics - Jack Richards & Son Founder Members

Created from an alliance of five long-established, trusted, privately-owned regional hauliers, and managed by the UK’s leading expert in logistics collaboration, Harlequin has been set up to offer cost-effective, environmentally-friendly, large-scale UK transport solutions. Jack Richards & Son was delighted to be asked to be part of the new consortium and Anthony Richards has taken a place on the Harlequin board as the company’s representative.

The business unifies the firepower of five of the UK’s top 100 hauliers behind one cohesive brand. This provides logistics buyers with a viable alternative to being “just another number” on a global super corporation customer database.

Harlequin Logistics offers UK manufacturers and retailers centralised management expertise, state-of-the-art systems, and the simplicity of a one-stop-shop organised through a single point of contact.

Its innovative structure also ensures customers retain speedy access to decision makers and strong local relationships, whilst avoiding the global corporations’ huge levels of central overhead.
