Established in 2009, Hawthorns Logistics is a family run business with over 30 years of experience in logistics.
Our company is on hand 24 hours a day to satisfy the requirements of our customers and to help provide innovative solutions to all of your logistical needs.
In 1988, we were working for parcel companies in the Birmingham area, then moved to the North East where we progressed to chilled distribution. After many years, the decision was made to try something new and start our own company, so with only one employee, we hired our first lorry from Scania Truck Rental.
A few years later we have over 50 employees, modern trucks and trailers, all running in and out of our centre in Washington, operating 24 hours a day. Our passion and dedication to our employees and customers has never been stronger.
We have sign written 4 refrigerated trailers with the Great North Air Ambulance, with the hope of raising awareness of an extraordinary charity that has always been close to our hearts. A few years ago, one of our lorries was involved in an accident when it was struck by another vehicle. The Great North Air Ambulance attended the scene and, owing to their help, the driver made a full recovery. If it was not for their help, he may not have been so lucky!
We offer daily temperature controlled services within the UK, all trailers are fitted with a tracking system so that we can monitor where your delivery is and you can receive an email as soon as the vehicle arrives at its destination.
Our drivers are a fundamental part of our team, they represent us on a daily basis so it’s imperative to provide them with trucks and trailers they can be proud of. To protect our drivers and other road users, the vehicles are fitted with side and forward facing cameras.
We pride ourselves on the job opportunities we have provided for people in our area, as our region has one of the highest rates of unemployment in the UK. By doing so we have provided people with a platform to develop many skills and qualities.
We also have a bonus scheme in place to encourage safe driving and compliance with EU regulations by all of our drivers, as safety is our main priority.
