Seven Lincs Limited was formed in 2005 to provide a comprehensive range of container transport and logistics services to the ever growing supply chain industry.
The business has enjoyed continued growth since its inception and following the acquisition of H J Calver in 2006, and we are now currently running over 150 dedicated vehicles covering all areas of the UK.
Today, the acquisition, investment and development in new equipment, technology, and prime strategic locations has allowed for us to pride ourselves on our ability to develop innovative, bespoke solutions for our customers, leading to enhanced operational efficiency.
Specialising in UK container haulage, our current 3.2 acre site on the entrance to The Port of Felixstowe means we are ideally situated to handle the busy flow of traffic entering The Port of Felixstowe every day. On record, the port handles more than 4million TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) and welcomes approximately 3,000 ships each year, including the largest container vessels afloat today – crucially, the port provides some of the deepest water close to the open sea of any European port.
Around 30 shipping lines operate from Felixstowe, offering approximately 90 services to and from 400 ports around the world. We are extremely proud of our customer portfolio which, as well as working directly for a number of the world’s largest shipping lines, also includes, NVOCC’s, freight forwarders, international trailer operators, retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, as well as many other logistics/supply chain companies.
As well as our head office being located in such a prime location on The Port of Felixstowe, we also have vehicles ideally based in Kettering, London, North East, North West, Southampton, and The Midlands, to ensure we have substantial representation at all major UK ports. Our relationship with a number of leading rail operators also allow for us to offer rail space to help maximise utilisation and cost efficiency.
Seven Lincs Limited are part of the Seven Group which means we have the ability to take advantage of synergies with other companies within the group which enables us to provide customers with an end-to-end logistics solution. From the sourcing and management of vehicle fleets, to the tailoring of bespoke telematics solutions, we have the ability to deliver our ‘more for less’ philosophy.
