Our History

ACP was formed in 1996 as a result of a management buyout. We initially offered a driver-accompanied freight service to France.


Our previous experience of working for a large trailer operator had convinced us that the best way of offering a complete service to our clients was to run our road transport service in tandem with a freight forwarding team. Our success in achieving this means we can offer a complete road freight forwarding service to Europe for our import and export customers.

ACP has access to a wide range of trailers and can also provide full or direct part load services without the need for any transhipment. This means we can respond to our customers’ enquiries with flexible solutions that directly address their needs. Therefore, we have the ability to work with all customers – whatever their business or the scale of their requirements.

Our Approach

Very few companies in our industry run road transport and freight forwarding operations alongside one another.


Road transport operations place greater emphasis on the continual relay of information to the hauliers; in turn, this team is in direct contact with its drivers and uses every resource at its disposal to ensure data is transmitted quickly, efficiently and accurately.

A freight forwarding service is different – albeit in a subtle way. It is as much about the accurate transmission of information as it is providing first-class customer service to the customer. Ensuring the collection or delivery is completed on time, supplying vehicle details and providing accurate information – all of this must be done, whilst ensuring the customer is kept fully up-to-date with any important changes.

Your Solution

ACP Freight has the experience, the people and the resources to locate the right solution for you.


Our small-business approach to relationship building – coupled together with our extensive resources – means you’ll receive all the benefits of working with a larger organisation, whilst also benefiting from the close level of customer care normally associated with smaller-scaled operations.

For a road transport or freight forwarding quotation – or to find out more about how we can help your business – please call us on 02392 862112 or, if you prefer, send us a message.

We look forward to hearing from you.
