Our History

Black and White 2Long before the phrase was invented intelligent logistics solutions has been our business for over 70 years! Our business has seen many changes and we have prospered for this long because we continue to be a progressive, modern business embracing changing market conditions and providing consignment stocking, freight, logistics consultancy, reverse logistics and call centre management solutions – supported by exceptional customer service.

Woodall Transport was founded in the 1930’s by Jack Woodall transporting Hercules Bicycles, swiftly followed by a long standing relationship with Dunlop Tyres. The business continued through the Second World War and had to start up again after nationalisation, but then grew rapidly through the 1950’s and 1960’s both organically and via acquisitions.

During the 1970’s we flourished benefiting from a major contract with Cadbury’s. We went through management changes in the late 1980’s our current MD Richard Woodall joined the business in 2002 becoming MD in 2007.

In 2010 we became one of the largest members of TPN, The Pallet Network, which coincided with TPN’s move to a new purpose built head office and hub just 5 miles from our main site in Coleshill near Birmingham, creating significant efficiencies.

In 2012 we acquired another haulage business in Tamworth, Staffordshire creating opportunities for us to expand our geographical area to encompass Lichfield, Tamworth, Sutton Coldfield and Burton Upon Trent.

In 2014 we moved to prestigious premises with enhanced office space and much larger warehousing facilities which allowed us to add new services to our portfolio of logistics solutions.

We continue to invest heavily in our IT systems, procedures and staff and look forward to the next 70 years of successfully providing all your fulfilment, freight, consignment stocking, and logistics consultancy requirements through exceptional client partnerships.
