-Trevor Ellis – C S Ellis Chairman & Chairman of the board of director's at Palletline of which C S Ellis are founder members -

C S Ellis (Group) Ltd was founded in 1933 with hard working, traditional family ethics at its core and over the past 80 years the company has gained an unrivalled wealth of industry experience; from humble road transport beginnings to multi-site, state of the art warehousing and fulfilment solutions. What we’re most proud of is that our family values have always been, and continue to be, at the heart of our operation.

We also support our local community wherever possible. Supporting local charities, including Leicestershire cares, Air ambulance, Heart lincs and Mind, along with local school, providing lorries as floats for the Stamford carnival and Stamford football club.

Our Team

Trevor's son, Charles Ellis joined C S Ellis in 2000 as Financial Director, later taking the position of Managing Director. Charles' sister, Hayley Cook, works alongside Charles, championing customer service and HR, while also proudly holding a HGV license.

The family business is supported by a dedicated team who work tirelessly to ensure the C S Ellis' offering is excellent value within the marketplace and that our heritage of honesty, hard work and expertise are at the forefront of all we do. C S Ellis would be nothing without the hard work and dedication of our experienced employee's.

Our Customers

We work with customers who specialise in aggregate, farming, construction, DIY, food, the list goes on. We’re also the only regional haulier who can manage and transport chemicals and hazardous materials.

We work with businesses of sizes, from those with one or two pallets of goods that need transporting through to large international enterprises with full loads that need distributing across the UK and abroad. We’re able to service such a broad range of customers as we’re perfectly located with four depots across the East Midlands. What’s more, in 1994 we joined Palletline and later became a preferred carrier for Amazon.

Our direct agreement with Amazon, which enables us to work across all their distribution centres provides our customers with easy access into Amazon. Further to this, our European network, which works similarly to how we work with Palletline allows us to trace all goods and with a great track record of lead times, we’re incredibly competitive.
