UK Distribution


Austin Wilkinson & Sons was founded in 1960 and since then we have provided our customers with Freight and Distribution services across the UK and Europe. With experience in the haulage industry for over 60+ years we have grown our offering to comply with many customers’ business models. As an established member company of the Pall-Ex Pallet Network, we are able to offer pallet distribution services second to none across the UK and Europe that fit the needs of our customers. Being a part of the Pall-Ex Pallet Network gives us the availability to offer Next Day, Economy, Timed, Saturday deliveries and more so there’s always an option to suit you!

We also offer same-day and next-day dedicated haulage services, as well as groupage to ensure we can offer the best value to our customers, whilst providing a first-class, professional, bespoke and second-to-none service. Over the years we have built our fleet to over 25+ vehicles including specialist vehicles such as a HIAB Crane Vehicle and a Drive on Low Loader Plant Trailer. This allows us to extend our offering even further from general haulage to bespoke deliveries to our bespoke customers.

Our core values have always driven our great workforce to go above and beyond for our customers to make sure we adhere to whatever the customer needs us to do, that’s why in April 2021 we joined the EFS Global group to help ensure we stick to those core values we’ve built open for all these years, after all the EFS Global motto is ‘Where the Customer Comes First!’.

I had a delivery today.The delivery driver was called Mark. What an amazing person. He delivered a desk to my house. I have a serious heart condition and the desk was very heavy. He brought the parcel in for me. Then carried it upstairs it was really heavy. He went above and beyond to help me. Used his 15 mins break to help me. He even offered to put the desk up due to my disability. What an amazing kind person. Will not forget what he did. He is a credit to the company. You are very lucky to have him in your work force.


Mark was a very friendly delivery driver, couldn't be more helpful!


Brilliant company, friendly helpful staff, would not go anywhere else.


Friendly staff.


Willing and funny staff, quick unloading and loading, quite a lot of space on the platform.
